Nurses/ Psychiatric Nurse's experience of working in psychiatric care (English)
Abstract [en]

Background; In today's social debate, much is written and spoken of how poor psychiatric care works, care places are closed and there are difficulties in recruiting nurses / psychiatric nurses. Psychiatric care has problems with its image, and this is based on the media's angle that the people who work there themselves have some kind of psychiatric diagnosis and are ineffective, neurotic and controlling and have no limits to their patients. Media and large parts of society in general have a driving role that contributes to the psychiatric care and psychiatric care patients being stigmatized and the nurse working in psychiatric care is stigmatized through association. This has a negative effect and causes nursing students and registered nurses not to choose psychiatric care. Aim; of the study was to describe how nurses/psychiatric nurses' experiences of working at a psychiatric ward. Method; was a qualitative, descriptive study, based on eight interviews with nurses/psychiatric nurses working in a psychiatric ward. The interviews were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Results Made up in three categories as "Stigma by association", "Experienced deficiencies" and "Work joy. The nine subcategories were "Stamped", "Stagnation", "Competence and recruitment problems", "Leadership", "Poor working environmen", "Mentor's role", "A rewarding and fun work", "Developing", "Good patient relationship". Conclusion; The informant think they have a educational and fun job but they are sad and frustrated that they are experiencing shortcomings and do not have the correct conditions for doing the best work. Stigma by association is obtained through the work.
