Feeling confident is important to health and quality of life. The purposes of this research were to identify the essences of the experience of feeling confident and to contribute to knowledge about human becoming-the nursing theory guiding this study. Participants were ten persons 18 years of age and older who were living with a spinal cord injury in the community. They were willing to speak about feeling confident and to share a symbol, picture, piece of music, poem, or metaphor which was an expression of their experience. The Parse research method for data gathering and analysis, a phenomenological-hermeneutic method, was used to answer the research question: What is the structure of the lived experience of feeling confident? The Parse research method illuminates the structure of universal lived experiences of health through the processes of dialogical engagement, extraction-synthesis, and heuristic interpretation. The central finding of this study is the structure: The lived experience of feeling confident is a buoyant assuredness amid unsureness arising with fortifying engagements in persistently pursuing the cherished This structure is comprised of three core concepts-buoyant assuredness amid unsureness, fortifying engagements, and persistently pursuing the cherished-that reflect the unitary experience of feeling confident for the participants in this study. Using examples from the participants' descriptions, the core concepts will be discussed in relation to how they enhance understanding about human becoming and in relation to how they inform the research and practice of nurses and other health professionals.
