Although decision making is important in all areas of nursing,

the study of clinical decision making in cardiovascular nursing

is particularly significant because of the prevalence of coronary

health disease in our society. The aims of this ongoing study

are to: (a) develop a typology for clinical decisions made by

cardiovascular nurses; (b) compare expert and novice nurses' use

of analytical and intuitive processes; and (c) describe

cardiovascular nurses' lived experience with clinical decision

making. Paradigmatic and methodological triangulation are used

to gain an understanding of the complex phenomenon of clinical

decision making. Information Processing Theory and Heidegerrian

Phenomenology provide the theoretical framework. Eighteen

experts and 18 novice nurses from coronary care and stepdown

units in three hospitals are studied intensively. The methods

include: (a) verbal protocol method in which subjects' think

aloud while making clinical decisions about hypothetical cases;

(b) interviews to elicit subjects' narrative descriptions of

memorable clinical decision-making situations from their own

practice; and (c) interviews to elicit subjects' descriptions of

their lived experience with clinical decision making.

Quantitative and qualitative analyses will include X2, factor and

discriminant analyses, verbal protocol analysis, computerized

content analysis, and interpretive analysis.
