Female nurses remaining in long-term health care employment : Aspects that motivate long- lasting professional careers. A qualitative study (English)
Abstract [no]

Bakgrunn: Det er med bekymring man ser det økende antallet personer i arbeidsfør alder som står utenfor norsk arbeidsliv. Det er ansatte i helse- og sosialsektoren som har den høyeste raten nye uføre. Dette bildet forsterkes av at Norge har et udekket og økende behov for helsearbeidere.

 

Hensikt: Hensikten med denne studien var å få mer kunnskap om faktorer en gruppe kvinnelige seniorsykepleiere subjektivt opplever som positive for å stå lenge i lønnet arbeid.

 

Metode: Det ble gjort halvstrukturerte individuelle intervju av 11 kvinnelige sykepleiere med lang yrkeserfaring. Intervjuene ble analyserte ved bruk av innholdsanalyse, i tråd med retningslinjer gitt av Graneheim og Lundman (2004).

 

Resultat: Det overbyggende tema ble uttrykt som Mening og selvrealisering. Dette temaet bestod av to hovedkategorier: (1) Drivkrefter, som består av indre og interpersonelle aspekter, og (2) Muliggjørende faktorer, hovedsakelig arbeidsrelaterte og/eller organisatoriske forhold, inklusive det psykososiale klimaet og meningsfull verdsetting fra ledelse og kolleger.

 

Konklusjoner: Studien viser at når indre Drivkrefter og Muliggjørende faktorer i arbeidet virker i gjensidig samspill, skapes en god sirkel som leder til jobbtilfredshet, og opplevelse av mening og selvrealisering. Informantene uttrykker disse forhold som betydningsfulle for sitt lange yrkesliv

Abstract [en]

Background: In Norway increasing numbers of working-age people are not actively employed. The health and social services sector have the highest rates of people collecting disability benefits. This is of concern also due to the current demand for qualified staff within the health and social services.   

 

Purpose: This study aimed to uncover factors and incentives subjectively experienced by a group of senior female nurses that affect motivation to remain actively employed until retirement.

 

Method: We conducted individual, semi-structured interviews with 11 senior female nurses. Content analysis followed the guidelines of Graneheim and Lundman (2004).

 

Result: The overall theme was labelled Meaning and Self-realization. This theme consisted of two main categories: (1) driving forces (mainly internal or interpersonal aspects), and (2) facilitating factors (mainly work-related and/or organizational aspects including psycho-social climate and meaningful appreciation by management and colleagues).

 

Conclusions: The study shows that the interaction between internal driving forces and facilitating factors generates positive feedback loops that can lead to increased job satisfaction, meaningful experience, and self-realization. The interviewees deemed these factors essential for a long-lasting professional career.
