Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: Nurse managers need to create cultures that are worthy, not only of the commitment of everyone who comes to work but also of the trust of everyone who comes to be served. The aim of our study was to describe the challenges faced by Swedish nurse managers in a perioperative setting.

METHODS: A qualitative study was conducted. The participants were chosen by convenience sampling, and individual in-depth interviews were conducted. Data were analysed by Systematic Text Condensation. The COREQ checklist was consulted throughout the study to optimise the quality.

RESULTS: Nineteen nurse managers (all women) participated. Six themes were identified: "striving to treat employees with consideration and solicitude"; "the obligation to take care of each employee's individual needs"; "convincing others was an uphill battle", "finding solutions when things seem impossible"; "staff recruitment, allocation, and management"; "working with constantly changing planning".

CONCLUSIONS: The nurse managers faced challenges because of the overwhelming amount of work tasks, with almost no time for reflection. Having carefully chosen tasks and a realistic time schedule for each work task, plus time to find one's own path to inner peace, are essential for nurse managers. Organisations that provide these prerequisites show that they care about their nurse managers. The results of this study indicate the need for time to reflect, as well as support from superior managers and from the human resources department.

Abstract [en]

AIM: To describe reasons why nurse managers in perioperative settings decide to leave their employment.

BACKGROUND: Current literature has shown that perioperative nurse managers' reasons to leave their positions are formed through an interaction of factors.

METHODS: Individual in-depth interviews were performed with seven nurse managers, all women, in perioperative settings in Sweden. Data were analysed using Systematic Text Condensation.

RESULTS: Five key themes were identified: a- To end where I started, as a front-line nurse; b- I wanted to develop further to the next level in my career; c- I ran out of ideas; d- I lost trust in my head manager and did not believe in the new organization, and e- I had had enough of being offended by my superior manager and my employees.

CONCLUSION: Nurse managers experienced feeling forced into a decision to leave because of being offended by their superiors or their employees. Furthermore, the findings indicate that nurse managers should be offered support from superior managers and the organization together with time for discussions.

IMPLICATIONS IN NURSING MANAGEMENTS: The most essential element should be the influence of caritative leadership and the obvious expectation of being treated with dignity, respect, and appreciation.

Abstract [en]

There is a rising tendency for students in higher education not to attend lectures. Therefore, the aim of the study was to describe the reasoning behind nursing students’ decisions on whether or not to attend lectures. This qualitative study was performed in a nursing education programme at a Swedish University. One hundred and thirty-one students participated. Data were collected through a questionnaire comprising open-ended questions. Qualitative content analysis was performed. The results are presented in eight categories: four concerning reasons for attending lectures and four concerning reasons for not attending lectures. Decisions, both to attend and to not attend lectures, were based on conscious choices guided by the students’ self-governing of their own personal needs for learning. © 2020, © 2020 The Author(s).

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to explore nurses' experiences of encountering parents who are hesitant about or refrain from vaccinating their child. A qualitative approach was chosen and data collected through individual, semi-structured interviews with 12 nurses. The text was analyzed using thematic analysis. Three themes emerged from the interviews: giving room and time for acknowledging parents' insecurity concerning vaccination, striving to approach the parents' position with tact, and a struggle between feelings of failure and respect for the parents' view. The findings indicate that it was crucial to give time, be tactful when meeting parents, as well as to appear credible and up-to-date. The nurses wanted to be open and respect the parents' views on vaccination but found it difficult and frustrating to be unable to reach out with their message because their quest was to protect the child.

Abstract [en]

AIM: The study describes what helps nurse managers maintain the strength to keep going as leaders.

BACKGROUND: Good leadership is important for the quality of patient care, patient satisfaction in care and efficiency. Many nurse managers stay on despite challenges at work.

METHODS: Twelve nurse managers were interviewed. Data were analysed by systematic text condensation according to Malterud.

RESULTS: The results were as follows: A-Walking side by side with my employees; B-Knowing that I mean something to my employees; C-Talking to myself-asking myself tough questions; D-Having someone to talk to, to decrease the feeling of being alone; E-Leading and managing in my own way-the fear of not succeeding is my motivation.

CONCLUSION: The nurse managers built their own strategies to get through and get on when difficult situations arose. In order to succeed in leading their employees, the nurse managers gathered their inner strength through moving caritatively back and forth between the 'secret room' and the 'staff room' in the house of leadership.

IMPLICATIONS IN NURSING MANAGEMENT: The manuscript gives insights into where nurse managers found sources of strengths in their everyday work. To realize their employees' strengths and motivation made a difference for nurse managers as a driving force. By having someone to talk to and by asking themselves tough questions, they were prepared for the challenges that came.

Abstract [en]

Purpose To investigate why nurse anesthetists and operating room nurses choose to stay in the same workplace.

Design Qualitative design.

Methods Individual interviews were conducted with 15 nurse specialists from four hospitals in Sweden. Two men and 13 women aged between 43 and 63 participated. Data were analyzed with systematic text condensation according to Malterud.

Findings Three themes were identified. (1) Organizational stability contributed to low staff turnover, with good spirits between colleagues, representing everyone’s equal value and resulting in a feeling of homelikeness. (2) Sustained development in one’s own profession. (3) A humane head nurse who was at hand, who was a facilitator, who knew staff members, and eliminated obstacles for them.

Conclusions In a nonhierarchical and stable organization with a head nurse with caritative leadership skills, a welcoming working environment with opportunities for professional development is created. Thus, nurse specialists choose to stay, contributing to organizational development.

Abstract [en]

When someone falls ill with dementia it affects the whole family. Therefore, the aim of thisqualitative single case study was to increase understanding of one female spouse´s experiencesof living with a husband/partner diagnosed with early-onset dementia before the ageof 40 years. Two open-ended interviews with the female spouse were performed sixmonths apart and analysed for narrative structure and themes. The single case is describedin the form of a story and organised along a time line comprising four phases; «Somethingis wrong», «Becoming aware of what is wrong», «Life is restricted» and «Towards reconciliation».Healthcare professionals should meet spouses with respect, listen to them and providepractical support, thus giving them the opportunity to rest, obtain respite and time ontheir own to enable reconciliation and wellbeing.
