Abstract [en]

Background: In past research it has been shown that the tutorial assignment is time-consuming and demands a lot from the specialist nurse as a tutor. A sense of security in one’s competence is required to master the role as a tutor. Insufficient support and lack of competence development are factors that have been determined to affect the nurses’ perception of self-sufficiency in their profession.

Purpose: To describe the nurses’ perception of their role as tutors and their competence in the field of nursing science for the launch of a clinical training unit in a general psychiatric department.

Method: A qualitative inductive approach has been used. Focus group interviews was used for data gathering and the collected material was evaluated from a phenomenographic analytic model.

Result: It was discovered that the role of a tutor requires the nurses to emphasize the importance of the nursing profession to give the student an accurate picture of the profession. This by having one’s say and convey the nurse’s analysis of the patient’s need to the other professions in the team, which was perceived as a challenge by the nurses. It was also found that nurses need to work actively to keep the nursing science competence up-to-date and integrated in the everyday practice, to best support the development of the student.

Conclusion: A forum is required where the nurses can share their experiences and competence to create a common knowledge bank, rooted in the nursing science. Where together, they can sustain the values of nursing science and in their practice get support to convey the significance of the profession, to the student.
