Abstract [en]

Background: Creative strategies are needed in nurse education to integrate theory, practice and lived experiences.Towards that end, reflective seminars, conducted in congruence with reflective lifeworld theory andcaring science, were implemented during a three-year nursing programme. The reflection seminars took placeduring the theoretical parts of education and the clinical placements. Each reflection group consisted of six tonine students, and the seminars were led by a lecturer from the university.

Objectives: This article aims to describe the experiences of learning about caring science by participating inreflective seminars that were integrated into courses during a three-year nursing education programme.

Design: A phenomenological approach was used, and qualitative group interviews were conducted.

Methods: This study used a reflective lifeworld research approach based on phenomenological philosophy

Results: The findings reveal that nursing students experience reflective seminars as being valuable for theirprofessional development. The result is described in more detail via four meaning units: An obtained awarenessof the value of reflection in clinical practice; Reflection contributes to an approach of thoughtfulness; Caringscience has become second nature, and Reflection as a strength and a challenge at the threshold of a profession.

Conclusions: This study contributes to the understanding of reflective seminars grounded in lifeworld theory as adidactic strategy that enables students to increase their knowledge of caring science and develop their reflectiveskills
