This paper describes the findings of a phenomenological study of professional fulfilment in nurses who care for older people. The author sought to uncover what brings career satisfaction to nurses who care for older people and subsequently what motivates these caregivers to continue to care. The findings have implications for clinical nurses who may see reflections of their own approaches to care in the narratives presented. The examples of care reported may inspire nurses who work with older adults by affirming their own nursing interventions.
