This paper presents part of an interpretive phenomenological study that examines the question, ôwhat are health professionals and families experiences of dilemma in paediatric practice?ö This paper will present findings from the study, which relate to how paediatric nurses experience dilemma in the everyday practice of doing procedures to children. The focus of this study is how health professionals and families encounter and experience dilemma in practice. The aim is to understand what æis' dilemma in paediatric practice rather than to describe what æare' dilemmas in paediatric practice. The methodology used for this study is Heideggarian Phenomenology. The part of the data that will be presented was collected from 7 in-depth unstructured interviews with 7 participants who were paediatric nurses. Stories told by participants were analyzed using a thematic analysis as outlined by Van Manen (1990). Three themes will be discussed: æScary People', æFor Their Own Good' and æGrowing Distress'. æScary People' relates to how paediatric nurses embody themselves and children as a result of doing everyday procedures such as IV and naso-gastric insertion. æFor Their Own Good' relates to how nurses rationalize these practices, but how this causes personal and professional tension. æGrowing Distress' is the result of not being to rationalize doing to procedures to children any longer and the consequences of this. In conclusion, the themes show that although paediatric nurses æcare' for children, paediatric nurses may perceive the experience of ædoing procedures' to children as ænon-caring'. The dissonance in the modalities of care that paediatric nurses work in may contribute to a sense of personal and professional conflict and contribute to a loss of paediatric nurses from the profession.
