Abstract:Continuous development of health care demands and increased use of technology change nurses’ daily practice. Therefore, nurses should invest in professional development to remain competent and to provide adequate care. However, nurses are confronted with two realities in the process of their professional development. On one hand, nurses are eager to invest in their professional development with intrinsic motivation. On the other hand, there is an extrinsic demand to comply with requirements. The Self-Determination Theory emphasizes this discrepancy and states that even though learning experiences occur externally, individuals could always have some amount of intrinsic regulation towards the experience. This study examines differences and similarities between nurses’ learning experiences that occurred out of personal interest versus learning experiences that occurred out of motivation to comply with requirements. And aims to gain insights and to develop a foundation in nurses’ needs to become intrinsically motivated. Participants in this study were twenty nurses from two different departments of Radboudumc, The Netherlands. A qualitative study with narrative interviews was conducted, to reconstruct learning experiences that occurred out of personal interest (intrinsic learning experiences) and that occurred from motivation to comply with requirements (extrinsic learning experiences). Participants provided these experiences themselves.
