    Abstract [en]

    Background: Immigration to Sweden has increased sharply over the past 20 years. This means that an increasing proportion of the population is born abroad. The number of healthcare workers born abroad is also increasing. This makes health care a multicultural workplace. Previous research on multiculturalism in working life shows that it can give both positive and negative effects. Aim: The aim was to investigate nurses' experiences of how nursing is influenced by working in multicultural working groups. Method: A qualitative interview study with an inductive approach has been conducted. The data collection was done through six semi-structured interviews, based on an interview guide. The interviews were analyzed on the basis of a manifest qualitative content analysis. Results: The analysis of the interviews resulted in three main categories: Language Difficulties, Gains and Challenges and Knowledge. Each category has two subcategories. Conclusion: Multicultural patient groups can get better care from multicultural care staff. Multicultural working groups, however, require demands on the nurses' cultural skills. In order for it to work, it is also important that staff adapts to the current care culture.
