dc.description.abstract Fifteen intrapartal nurses participated in this qualitative, descriptive study of the use of intuition in caring for laboring clients. Demographic information, including participant self-rating of intuitive ability on a visual analog scale, was obtained. Personal interviews with a predetermined interview schedule were audio-taped. Definitions of intuition and how nurses use intuition in their clinical practice, including supports and barriers to its use were explored. Examples of the use of intuition by intrapartal nurses are given. One recommendation for further study is the development of instruments to empirically measure intuitive ability. Enhancement of patient care through acceptance of intuitive judgment was i3n implication for nursing practice. The study findings confirmed the use of intuition by intrapartal nurses as an integral part of their clinical nursing practice. en
