Abstract

There has been much role expansion in nursing in the last two decades, with advanced nurses now performing minimally invasive surgery such as central venous access device insertion. However, there is a lack of research exploring the perceptions of nurses performing these procedures. This study explored the lived experiences of nurses who perform minimally invasive surgery, namely central venous access device insertion. Three key themes emerged from this analysis:stress associated with the unpredictable nature of the procedure,coping with responsibility and a patient-focused approach. Although the practitioners experience a degree of stress in the role, they also experience job satisfaction and feel that their roles have a positive impact on the patients in their care. The study findings provide information to managers and nurses performing these roles, and suggest how stress and burnout can be prevented.
