Abstract [en]

Within the profession of nursing, an intrinsic aspect of interactional competence is the nurses’ ability to manage interpersonal relations and to act in accordance with cultural and social norms of proper nurse conduct. The focus of this chapter is how student nurses are socialized into preferred modes of interacting with patients. The data consist of video recordings of a training session in which nursing students at a clinical training center learn to insert peripheral venous catheters. The results of the study show various ways in which the students and their teacher explore social norms of proper nurse conduct by mobilizing the category term patient, and how the notion of a ‘good nurse’ thus emerges in interaction between the participants.
