Abstract:
This study examined the journey involved in becoming a nurse. 24 self-selected students at the beginning, middle, and end of a Canadian University Nursing Program participated in this research. Data were collected by a survey questionnaire, picture drawing analysis, focus group discussion and follow-up debriefing telephone call. Five themes emerged in the data: 1) Caring to nurse; 2) The shaping of nurses' professional identity; 3) Professional and personal changes; 4) Experiencing nursing education in the health care system; and 5) Imagining future practice. Themes and images were compared to those presented in the literature and the implications for nursing student education were discussed. Overall, students in first year were extremely positive and excited about their self-image as a nurse and choice of a professional career. Second-year students were more negative about their sense of self and described feeling unsure about the role expectations of the nurse. Students in fourth year described experiencing low self-esteem and had negative feelings about nursing but were positive about their future in the profession.
