Abstract

Background: Stroke is a common disease in Sweden and every year about 25000–30000 people fall ill. Stroke includes both cerebral infarction and brain abscess. In a stroke ward, the multidisciplinary team works together where the nurse plays a role in promoting the patient's recovery. Aim: The aim was to describe nurses' experiences of providing nursing care to patients in a stroke ward. Method: A general literature review based on twelve qualitative articles. Article searches have been made in databases within nursing, Chinal Complete and Pubmed. The articles have been reviewed according to HKR's review template for qualitative articles and analyzed according to Friberg (20222) 4 step analysis model. Results: After analyzing the articles, two main categories emerged: The nurse's feeling of being there for the patient and the nurse's feeling of facing problems in nursing. These overarching areas were divided into two subcategories each: The role of a nurse in stroke care is complex, The importance of competence, The feeling that there is not enough time and The importance of collaboration. Discussion: Shenton's (2004) four credibility concepts were discussed based on the study's methodology. In the discussion on results, the following three findings were highlighted: The importance of competence, The feeling that there is not enough time and the importance of cooperation. These were discussed based on McCormack and McCance's (2006) framework for person-centered care.
