Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna litteraturstudie var att belysa hur olika personlighetsdrag och motiv har inflytande på yrkesvalet till att bli sjuksköterska med fokus på medberoendeproblematik. Detta med anledning av att personer med en problematisk uppväxt tenderar att välja ett omvårdnadsyrke där behovet av att ta hand om andra kan uppfyllas. Metod; en allmän litteraturöversikt vilken består av 10 kvalitativa studier från år 2008 till 2016. Resultatet identifierades genom fyra teman: Viljan att hjälpa andra, Påverkan från andra, Olika personlighetsdrag, Praktiska anledningar och tidigare erfarenheter. Slutsatser; studien har svarat på syftet om varför man väljer att bli sjuksköterska och vad som kan influera valet. Huruvida olika personlighetsdrag har påverkat valet besvarades till viss begränsning. Författarna anser att studien möjliggör en inblick i vilka faktorer som påverkar individers motiv att välja yrket, detta kan komma att ge vårdpersonal och patienter en bättre förutsättning att mötas i en god vårdrelation. Funna teman har sammanvägts med begreppen caring och medberoende, vilket har genomsyrat arbetet. Förslag på fortsatt forskning är ytterligare undersökningar om personlighetsdrag hos de som väljer att bli sjuksköterska och om yrket är passande för alla personligheter.

 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to highlight the different personality traits and the motives of wanting to become a nurse with a focus on co-dependency. Due to that people with a problematic childhood tend to choose the nursing profession in which the need to care for others can be satisfied. The used method is a literature review consisting of 10 qualitative studies from the years 2008 to 2016. The results were identified by four themes: The desire to help others, the influence from others, various personality traits, practical reasons and previous experience. Conclusions; the study answered the aim of why one chooses to become a nurse and what can influence the choice. Whether the different personality traits influenced the choice was answered to some limitation. The authors believe that the study allows an insight into the factors that influence an individual's motives for choosing the profession, this may provide healthcare professionals and patients a better condition to meet in a good care relationship. The findings are weighted with the concepts caring and co-dependency, which has permeated the work. Suggestions for future research is to investigate further about the personality traits of those who choose to become a nurse and if the profession is suitable for all personalities.
