ABSTRACT

AIM:

This study aims to explore the lived experiences of frontline nurses providing nursing care for COVID-19 patients in Qatar.

DESIGN:

Qualitative, Phenomenological.

METHODS:

Nurses were recruited from a designated COVID-19 facility using purposive and snowball sampling. The participants were interviewed face-to-face using semi-structured interview questions from 6 September-10 October 2020. The interviews were transcribed and analyzed using Colaizzi's phenomenological method.

RESULT:

A total of 30 nurses were interviewed; (76.7%) were deployed for >6 months. Three major themes were drawn from the

analysis:

(a) Challenges of working in a COVID-19 facility (subthemes working in a new context and new working environment, worn out by the workload, the struggle of wearing protective gear, fear of COVID-19, witnessing suffering); (b) Surviving COVID-19 (subthemes keeping it safe with extra measures, change in eating habits, teamwork and camaraderie, social support); and (c) Resilience of Nurses (subthemes a true calling, a sense of purpose).
