Abstract [en]

Background It is crucial for patients to be met by understanding in their vulnerability, to be treated by competence that ensure adequate care and met with an encouraging attitude to participate in their health process. They meet professional careers as well as students, but nevertheless the aim for caring is the same: to provide good and secure care for the patients, all in line with a caring science approach. A limit amount of studies illuminate patients’ experiences of receiving care from student nurses. Aim The aim was to describe how patients perceived being cared for by student nurses, in a clinical context Method The study has been performed with a Reflective Lifeworld Research approach founded on phenomenology. 11 lifeworld interviews were conducted with patients, recently discharged from an orthopedic Dedicated Education Unit. Data have been analyzed for meanings. Results Patients perceive that they are being carried along on the students' learning process like a journey together. This is characterized by a fluctuation between stable and unstable care from the students. Along this journey, patients are in need of a mutual invitation to participation, of genuine encounters, and essential support. Conclusion The patient-student-supervisor relationship is of importance for patients’ experience of being cared for by student nurses in a clinical setting. Genuine encounters between patient and student must be identified and can be stimulated by didactic support and reflection grounded in caring science with a lifeworld perspective. Supervisors have to support to both students and patients in order to create a safe environment in which caring and learning are intertwined. Students require patients in their learning process but patients’ vulnerability, need for participation, genuine encounters and essential support, must be taken into account.
