This article shows that in clinical care dialogue, both formal and informal, between nursing staff, tends to get neglected. At the same time, hospital working days are characterized by different working shifts and also the fact that you never know what a day will bring, all of which makes it difficult to find a convenient time and place to share experiences with colleagues. However, dialogue is very important as it creates new knowledge.

A pilot project has led to the establishment of an on-line social room for a group limited to seven nurses.

A subsequent evaluation reveals that on-line dialogue can have potential as it makes room for centering nursing domain. This contributes to joint understanding, reflection and phronesis, thereby contributing to a strengthening of the nurse’s identity, and creating room for acceptance and for new possibilities. The on-line room is a flexible, alternative room for dialogue between nurses.
