The aim of the study was to describe nurses’ experiences from situations in which patients suffering from dissociative disorders needed stabilization. The data were collected from individual research interviews and were analyzed using Malterud’s systematic text condensation. The analysis led to new descriptions of the experiences: to create inner peace, in order to feel at peace and to give peace. “Creating inner peace” describes the conditions that allow nurses to feel secure in the situation. “Feeling and giving peace” is about common traits in the behavior of the nurses. The study will provide inspiration to the development of phenomenological and health promoting practice for nurses who work in similar situations.
