Abstract [en]

In this thesis the core of the nursing professional skill will be portrayed through the opportunities of the essay writing. Thus the tacit knowledge, which is at the verge of erosion in a zeitgeist where medical care shall be cost-efficient and where development is mainly based on scientific research, will be articulated. Scientific articulation of knowledge has gained increasing importance on the expense of the practical knowledge. Healthcare professional skill requires a refind ability of judgment, which absorbs its nourishment from both scientific knowledge and the proven proficiency expertise.

Professional skill expresses itselfs through action, especially through the acting in unexpected incident. Experience is developed into knowledge through reflection. I want to awaken the reader’s thoughts about the road to professional skill, how it is affected by the context we are living in as well as to illustrate the strength and fragility of the professionalism over time. I also want to provide the practitioners with a broader opportunity to independently be able to evaluate the quality of their own practice.
