Resumé

Training to become a nurse involves education in the clinical practice in hospital wards. It is a multifaceted and complex arena in which the student nurses not only have to learn about medical encounters but also how to interact with colleagues as well as patients and their families. By using video ethnography and interaction analysis the authors show how the participants involved understand and act within the everyday encounters and situations in the hospital. The micro ethnographic analysis in this article shows how interaction between participants involved in the complex setting takes place as a collaboration – and thus how the students understand their own professional identity in the making.

N2 - Student nurses are socialised into the clinical profession of being a nurse as they participate in wards in the hospitals as part of their education. Through their clinical training they learn to interact with patient and colleagues. They also experience, how spaces and relations are intertwined throughout their learning period. The purpose of this study was to investigate the importance of place for the encounters between students and supervisors in clinical nursing. The paper at hand shows how different spaces such as a hallway, an office and being by the patients’ bedside prompts different interactional strategies. Through the use of video ethnography and nexus analysis, we show how the participants’ who orient to them in their interaction treat details in the settings – like a missing chair – or documents, as semiotic fields. Thus we find that the students, nurses and patients co-construct the space at hand into a place for different daily nursing activities.
