In a project initiated by a local branch of the Danish Nurses’ Organization in 2011-2012, 11 Danish nurses from different workplaces photographed their own professional practices. Based on theory and qualitative methods related to learning processes, narrative interviews, and photo-documentation, the project develops a new method which enables healthcare professionals and other professional experts to use a creative-reflective process to “provide … an opportunity to express, communicate, reflect upon, and discuss their professional identities”. The project presents new ways of shedding light upon nurses’ professional identities – a focus that is an important element in developing nurses’ professional practices. Photos and interviews from the project have been published in the book Øjeblikke. Sygeplejerskers hverdage fotograferet af sygeplejersker. The book was presented at the ICN congress in Melbourne in May 2013.
