Abstract:

This study, rooted on the phenomenological philosophy, explored the nature of caring among Filipino nurses working with children. Seven (7) participants were gathered as co-researchers and were carefully chosen based on the following present criteria: They are willing to articulate, share, participate, and describe their lived experiences, and they are registered nurses, currently working at a pediatric hospital for at least two years. The experiences of the co-researchers were subsequently gathered and enriched via the following methods: Interview, Storytelling, Participant Observation, Art, Group Discussion, Immersion and Reflective Resonance. Subsequently, three levels of reflective analysis was done following the process developed by the researcher, grounded on the interpretive phenomenology and ethnography. Through the process of reflective analysis, three themes have surfaced and are as follows: (a) “Alaga sa Pasyente”: Caring for the Body, (b) “Kalinga sa Tao”: Caring for the Person, (c) “Malasakit sa Kapwa”: Caring for Humanity. Further reflection found that for the co-researchers, to care for a child is to symbolically weave the very fabric of the child's life into their own being, sharing both the joy of their divine existence and the burden of their mortal frailty. It is an experience where pagmamalasakit and pakikiramdam are values lived in caring in a context where healing and suffering are intertwined realities of life. Therefore, the essence of caring as appreciated by the co-researcher is embodied by “oneness”. Insight from this study revealed that the co-researchers appreciate caring in a different and unique context thus there is a need to explore more on our own understanding of the caring phenomenon. For it is necessary that one must understand and connect first with their own culture to fully understand other people cultures as well and in the process make them proud of their own uniqueness and complexities as Filipino nurses.
