1. Objective: The purpose of this study is to explore the phenomenon of intuition as experienced by nurses in their practice. 2. Design: This is a phenomenological study using a hermeneutic strategy for data analysis. 3. The purposive sample was drawn from working RN’s who saw themselves as intuitive in their practice and had practiced five or more years. Sample was drawn from varied professional settings. 4. The study was set in the rural Midwest of the United States. 5. The primary questions of this study are: 1. Are there common characteristics of situations in which nurses who perceive themselves to be intuitive in nursing practice, use tuition, and 2. What other commonalities of intuitive experiences in nursing practice are identified as important by the study participants? 6. Data was collected through a group methodology. Analysis was performed using a hermeneutic strategy. The methodology supported analysis of experience within a framework of connected knowing, keeping narrative within the context of the whole. 7. Findings included the characteristics of: presence of conflict; serious nature of the situation; and, heightened emotional state. Other reported commonalities included: intuitive knowledge was instantaneous; nurses experienced an absolute certainty about the knowledge; and, nurses felt compelled to respond to the knowledge. 8. Conclusions: Intuition is a valid and valuable asset used by expert nurses in their practice. 9. Implications: If the core of expert practice does not proceed in a solely linear reasoning fashion, the student nurse needs to be nurtured in non-linear ways of knowing also.
