Abstract
PURPOSE
This study was to understand the meaning of experience in delivery room practice of male nursing students.
METHODS
This is qualitative research using focus groups. Data were collected by group interviews from May 22 to June 20, 2010. The focus group interviews were conducted to 14 male nursing students who had experience clinical practice in delivery room. Data were analyzed through Colaizzi's method, in which meaningful statements were extracted.
RESULTS
Five theme clusters were identified from thirteen themes and twenty four sub-themes. The five theme clusters were 1) cultural perception of gender role, 2) perceived reality of male nurse, 3) difficulty in approaching clients, 4) counter-educational environment, 5) insight and new perception.
CONCLUSION
For the purposes of remedying male nurse students' problems experienced during clinical practice in delivery room, it seems that there is a need for reeducating nurses' perception of male nurse students and develop programs specially dedicated to clinical practice of male nurse students.
