The lived experience of nurse practitioners caring for victims of domestic violence
Domestic violence (DV) is a major health care problem. Providing care for
victims of domestic violence is a multifaceted experience. Nurse practitioners are faced
with the daily challenges of providing medical and social services, coordinating quality
care, and ensuring safety for these victims. As health care providers, nurse practitioners
are forced to uncover the truth about abuse, accept new roles and responsibilities, and
move forward as they care for these victims. Furthermore, there is a renewal of
commitment to their role as a nurse practitioner, maintaining devotion and caring for
victims ofDV even when victims decide to return to the abuse.
In this phenomenological study, three nurse practitioners who care for victims of
DV were interviewed. The results of this study help to gain a better understanding of
their lived experiences so that clinicians may provide care that addresses the unique
concerns of both victims of DV and health care providers, establishing direction to the
long-term goal of improved health, through specialization of resources and sensitive
outcome evaluation, for both the victim and health care provider.
