Purpose: This paper will report on a qualitative study conducted on critical care nurses to explore their role in clinical decision-making. Methodology: The study is qualitative in nature and is grounded on the phenomenological hermeneutics methodology (Heideger 1962). Sample and data collection: Data was generated through overt participant observation and in-depth interviews. Three critical care units in the city of Amman was involved in the study. Twenty-four critical care nurses were interviewed individually and about 150 hours of observations were spent in the involved intensive care units. Methods: Van Manen’s (1990) phenomenological approach for data analysis was utilised to guide data analysis. Findings: Five themes were generated from the data: ongoing process, autonomy, experience/power, joint/ethical decisions, and advocacy. Details of each of these themes are discussed. Conclusion: The paper concludes by discussing the critical care nurse qualities as a Knowledgeable, experienced, and risk taker agent along with the role of these qualities in the nurse’s decision-making abilities.
