Abstract [en]

Basic trained nurses experience to start working on a children’s ward

The aim of the study was to describe nurses trained to a basic level experience of starting work on a children's ward. A qualitative study has been conducted with a purposively drawn sample of informants. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight basic trained nurses. Data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. The results showed that respondents felt that the pediatrics course is not preparing for the professional work with children. Most felt that it was through real situations in the workplace that they gained necessary knowledge. Furthermore, it was found that only a few were satisfied with the induction. Spending time with many different supervisors was an important factor for experiencing dissatisfaction with the induction. Good support was received from employees; however the support of the organization was poor. Conclusion: Today's undergraduate education in nursing does not include enough pediatrics to prepare students for professional work with children and adolescents. Actions at individual and workplace levels are needed to increase knowledge of the basic trained nurse. Continuity and support during the induction is important for newly employed nurses to feel competent in their work.
