Knowledge and Professionalism in Nursing

PhD project: Knowledge and Professionalism in Nursing

Knowledge plays a crucial role in professional work, and has been subject of discussion within nursing the last decades. The overall aim of the Ph.D. project is to investigate what types of knowledge constitute professionalism in nursing: How are nurses using knowledge in their work in a clinical context? Conducting an ethnographic study, using participant observation and qualitative interviews as methodological approach, the project will explore how knowledge is applied and negotiated among nurses, among nurses and other professionals, and among nurses and managers in a clinical ward at a Norwegian hospital.
