Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, November 9, 2015: In order to investigate the lived experience of nurses in rural Uganda this qualitative study was conducted in the summer of 2014. The researcher traveled to three bush villages in rural Uganda and interviewed seven nurses working in community clinics until data saturation was achieved. The interviews were taped and transcribed, then analyzed for themes. Three major themes emerged. Nurses in rural Uganda maintain a positive outlook in spite of harsh realities, they persevere out of a desire to help others, and they perceive nursing to be a notable and respected career in their country. The results relating to overall work satisfaction are interesting in the context of third world conditions.
