[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
 The objective of this study is to clarify how to support nurses who provide care for patients with schizophrenia through a better understanding of the concepts of ?ego? and ?self?, as well as to contribute to establishing a methodology of nursing.
Methods:  
 To this end, through a literature review, we defined the concept of ?ego? and ?self? in terms of the nursing care field. Reviewing the literature retrieved using the keywords ?nursing?, ?ego? and ?self?, the following three points would be significant.
Results: 
 1. Although the concepts of ego and self in psychiatric nursing are generally in agreement with the psychiatric dynamical constructs of Freud, the concept of ?self? requires greater clarification for psychology and psychiatric nursing.  2. Studies that report the influence of strengthening or development of ego are presented without definitions of ego and self. In addition, they did not evaluate details of how these changes would affect nursing; still, it is not evident whether these are factors that would affect nursing. 3. According to ego psychology, the ?ego? is considered the center of the mind and a component of a three-way system that includes the id and superego; whereas, the ?self? is the whole person in mind and body as distinguished from other persons. Being cognizant of the ego?s vulnerability enables a clearer support structure for nurses.
Conclusion: 
Depending on the schizophrenia patient?s condition, either acute or chronic period, proper care is important.
