Abstract: When it comes to recognitions of terminal care among hospital nurse managers, this study was conducted with focus interviews targeting 15 nurse managers with over 10 years of experience at hemato-oncological centers, hospice wards, and intensive care units of three general hospitals with more than 300 wards in 3 cities of Korea, in order to explore the nature of experience using a phenomenological research methodology. Data analysis was based on Colaizzi(1978)’s phenomenological analysis method and 19 themes and 4 theme clusters were extracted from 64 meaning formations following the in-depth interviews with the subjects. It is supposed that the study findings would help in understanding the structure of nursing students’ recognition on artistic aspects of care.
