Threat and violence in the prehospital environment is becoming more common. To ensure good nursing for the patients at all times, including threat and violence situations, it´s required that the ambulance personnel has the knowledge and education to handle this. The aim of this study was to describe registered nurses experience of threat and violence and how it effects the prehospital nursing. Data was collected through interviews with ten registered nurses at two ambulance stations in the south of Sweden. Analysis of the interviews were conducted with a thematic content analysis and resulted in two themes; An inevitable part of the work with consequences for the patient; Increased awareness and risk assessment reduces the risk of violent situations, and six categories. Threat and violence were seen as part of the work, caused a lot of thoughts and emotions, were something the nurses handled individually from their own experiences and made patient care suffer. Some factors tended to increase the risk of threat and violence situations, hence the importance of thinking safety, but there were a lack of structure and education to handle these kind of situations. Conclusion of the study shows that more research in the area is needed to make it possible for the ambulance personnel to handle these situations in a better and more secure way both for themselves and the patient.
