21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: To provide basic data for administrative and institutional support and backup by researching meanings and essentials of work experiences from nurses working as 911 paramedics. Methods: Data were collected from December, 2007 to July, 2008 from 7 nurses working in fire departments and analyzed using the phenomenological method provided by Munhall and Boyd. Participants of this study are 7 nurses who currently work as 911 paramedics and who are willing to express their experiences fully. Working experience of the participants were 5 years (1 nurse), 9 years (3 nurses) and 10 years (3 nurses). The grand mal question used in this study was "how is your work experience as a nurse working as a 911 paramedic?" Results: Narratives of the participants were analyzed and divided into 7 categories such as "considering moving to another job," "recognize lack of tasks ability," "difficulties in sufficient emergency treatment," "settle down a nursing position firmly," "trouble of tasks adaptation," "uncomfortable work places for female workers" and "ambivalent emotion about family." Conclusion: As a result of this study, even if the participants think their tasks fulfilling and prideful, they have some difficulties due to restrictions of tasks and work environment. Accordingly, I suggest developing education programs to improve task abilities, establishing safety measures in the field, providing compensation according to task accomplishments, providing opportunities to sufficiently express emotions and managing systems through consultation.
