She calls me sweetie pie : Children’s experience of the nurse while hospitalized (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Most nurses will, regardless of their workplace, meet and care for sick children in some way. How children communicate, think and act depends on their age. If the child de-velops a first good impression of the nurse it will affect the child’s total experience of the hos-pitalization. Also parents have a key role in the child’s hospitalization since they can transfer a feeling of security to their child. This essay aims to describe the child’s experience of the nurse.
