Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Globaliseringen gör att den kulturella kompetensen hos sjuksköterskan är viktig. Studier har visat att sjuksköterskestudenter som varit på internationellt utbyte och haft sin verksamhetsförlagda utbildning (VFU) i utland utvecklat en kulturell medvetenhet och personlig utveckling. Få studier har undersökt hur utbytet påverkat studenters professionella utveckling i rollen som sjuksköterska. Syftet var att beskriva sjuksköterskestudenters uppfattning om vad de lärt sig under VFU i utland som de tror har betydelse för deras framtida omvårdnadsarbete. Metod: Studien hade en kvalitativ ansats med en deskriptiv karaktär. Fem intervjuer genomfördes med studenter som deltagit i VFU i Indien. Därefter utfördes en kvalitativ innehållsanalys med induktiv ansats. Resultat: Tre övergripande kategorier: "Lärdom om sin profession", "Lärdom om sig själv" och "Lärdom om olikheter" med respektive underkategorier skapades under analysprocessen. Studenterna fick en förståelse för vad omvårdnad är och betyder för deras profession. De upplevde en personlig utveckling i form av ökad självsäkerhet, ett kritiskt förhållningssätt samt att de blev mer öppna och ödmjuka inför det som är annorlunda. Studenterna har också insett hur viktigt det är med den kulturella kompetensen. Slutsats: Lärdomarna upplevdes vara av betydelse för sjuksköterskestudenternas framtida omvårdnadsarbete, varför det är viktigt att fler studenter får möjlighet att delta i VFU utomlands. 

Abstract [en]

Background: Globalization makes cultural competence important for nurses. Studies have shown that nursing students who have been on an international exchange and participated in clinical practice abroad have developed a cultural awareness and increased their personal development. Few studies have described how exchange programs have influenced the professional development in the role as a nurse. The aim of this study was to describe nursing students' view on what they think they learned during their exchange abroad and how it will influence their role as nurses. Method: this study has a qualitative approach with a descriptive character. A systematic selection was made and five interviews were conducted with students that had been on internships in India. Subsequently, a qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach was implemented. Result: Three general categories: "Learning about profession", "Learning about oneself" and "Learning about differences" and additional subcategories were created during the analysis process. The students had gotten an understanding of what nursing is and means for their work as a nurse. They also experienced a personal development in terms of growing in confidence and critical approach. The students became more open minded and humble to things that are different. They also experienced how important it is with cultural competence. Conclusions: Nursing students' view is that these lessons will influence their role as a nurse; therefore it's important that more students get the opportunity to participate in an international exchange.
