Summary:
This research study addresses the personal, professional and organizational values held by nurse administrators, utilizing the phenomenological method of Paul Colaizzi (1978). The study investigates the values of eight nurse administrators in two acute care hospitals. Based on the significant statements which were formulated into clusters of themes and the formulation of essential values and themes, three common values emerged: communication, education, and honesty. A better understanding of these values will help guide nurse administrators in their current roles.
