dc.description.abstractThe present era of consumerism in health care provides more emphasis upon the clients' perceptions of their caregivers. This phenomenological study explored the lived experience of receiving care from a good nurse, from the perspective of three individuals who had undergone chemotherapy for cancer. Interviews with the participants produced narrative data on their lived experience. The interviews were transcribed and analyzed using Colaizzi's steps of phenomenological research, with Haase's modifications of the analysis to identify theme categories. The final five theme categories were: To Be a 11 Good" Nurse, What a 11 Good" Nurse Is Not, Engaging with the 11Good" Nurse, Encountering the 11 Bad" Nurse, and The Chemotherapy Journey. The essence of the lived experience of receiving care from a good nurse defines a good nurse as a caring individual who fosters a connected relationship with clients. The good nurse places the clients' comfort as a priority while demonstrating clinical expertise.en_US
