Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study was to describe how nurses conceive their work on a ward where a nursing philosophy has been systematically implemented.

Introduction: There is no international consensus today in relation to the organizing of nursing on the basis of an established nursing theory.

Design and method: This study has a phenomenographic methodology, with an epistemological base in life-world perspective. Data were collected through thematized interviews with nurses on a ward where a nursing philosophy has been implemented for several years.

Result: The conceptions of working with a nursing philosophy is described in an overarching statement formulated as a movement From implicit to explicit - where openness and freedom to speak are essential based on five categories of description (conceptions): Making it happen – the manager´s significance for implementation, Integrating the philosophy within me – creating a collective platform, “Welcome to us” – a caring atmosphere, The patient’s sense of being confirmed – establishing quality of care, “Us and them” –being inside or outside.

Conclusion: Working with an implemented nursing philosophy seemed to provide support to the nurse in day-to-day work and thereby contributes to shared values. On the basis of the results we are not able to state that the specific nursing philosophy used can be the only contribution to the experienced support.
