Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this study is to investigate how student nurses seek and use information and libraries. Furthermore, I want to know how they think information can be used in their future occupation. Seven student nurses were included in the study. A qualitative method with personal interviews was used. The analysis of the empirical material was made according to a socio-cultural perspective. The conclusion of the study is that despite the fact that the education is academical and the base of knowledge theoretical, the students still regard their future occupation as practical. The students consider their practical training to be more important than their theoretical education when they determine what is important to learn. During their training in hospital environments they observe the information behaviour of the nurses and copy them. This means that the student nurses do not use information and information sources to a greater extent during their practical training. They rely on the same information sources as practising nurses, such as PM, FASS and colleagues. The theoretical education does not offer a user education that is incorporated in the education and little emphasis is given to information seeking skills. This implies that the student nurses mainly use course literature and only seek additional information if the teachers demand it.
