Background Excepting Randall’s study (2008), literature about children’s feedback of nursing is poor and remarkably dated (Fleitas 1997, Bluebond-Langner 1978). Yet, interviewed children gave a very detailed account, which resulted deeply different from their parents’ or care assistants’ reports (Miller 2000, Scott 2000). Goal of the study We interviewed hospitalized children asking for the traits of good nursing. This qualitative study has a phenomenologic approach.Materials and Methods A qualitative interview was used to collect data: we interviewed 10 children admitted at Pediatria of the Azienda Ospedaliera-Universitaria Policlinico in Modena (Italy) in early 2009. Children were not selected according to probabilistic methods. Research was authorized by Unit Direction; we ensured anonymity to parents who gave written consent. The interviewer introduced himself to children explaining the aims of the research and asking them if they were in the mood for answering. Results Outcomes may be divided into 4 groups:1. natural-born qualities“A good nurse should be a special person in order to help children” 2. learning from aptitude“A good nurse should be cheerful with children who are afraid of cures”3. learning from experience“A good nurse should know and then remember: he should be experienced with children”4. Cognitive and psycho-physical learning“A good nurse should be qualified, I like nurses who explain what they are doing”Conclusion Children gave a very detailed account of the good nurse’s traits. Our results confirm Randall’s study (2008).
