The purpose of the proposed qualitative phenomenological research study was to determine the lived experiences of emergency department nurses involved in family presence during resuscitation events. The phenomenological research study added to the current knowledge about family presence during resuscitation by examining an emergency department nurse’s past experiences with family presence during resuscitation and the impact they have on their decision to allow family presence in future events. The information can assist health care leaders in understanding the perceptions of emergency department nurses regarding family presence and assist in developing guidelines regarding family presence during resuscitation. The data collected also helped to identify factors which influence the nurse’s feelings about the practice and to overcome resistance to the practice.
