In order to do so, a phenomenological hermeneutic investigation has been proposed, with an anonymous and confidential interview in nurses who have worked in public or private health institutions on the island of Tenerife and who have graduated from the University of La Laguna between 2009 and 2014. Three result´s categories of the data collection of the interview are established: ICU, OR and pediatrics.
