Abstract: This thesis investigates clinical nurses’ information seeking and information use through semi-structured interviews with six nurse practitioners, nurses with further education. Previous research shows that nurses have problems implementing evidence-searching at the clinic because of organization, stress and heritage of an old practice that does not incorporate the academic education. The theoretical framework consists of T.D. Wilson’s information seeking behavior model and R.H. Orr’s model of information needs. The empirical material is analyzed to find problematic barriers and solutions. Furthermore the study gives answer to the questions; what the nurses’ think of their education, what the barriers towards information seeking and information use are and suggestions of solution. The result shows that older education contained more medicine and practice. Modern education emphasizes nursing theory and reflection to a higher degree, which effectuate nurses to be more self-contained and better information seekers. Clinical nurses have a hard time seeking information evidence in everyday work. To participate in projects, groups of interests, meeting a clinical librarian at work, meetings and nursing rounding were found positive but only possible if organized. A problem is that the librarians are forgotten as a resource and that the clinical nurses do not view them as an ordinary team member as for instance the physiotherapist. Most of the nurses wish for more support and inspiration dialogue, especially with clinical lectors that could work as bridge builders between clinic and academy. They also wish for more contact with clinical librarians, standard nurse plans and more open and allowing leaders.
