Author(s):Shahrzad Ghiyasvandian1, Tiran Jamil Piro2* and Mahvash Salsali

This study aimed to explore nurses' perception of working in the Maternity Hospital in Erbil, Iraq. Heideggerian phenomenology was adopted to explore the Iraqi nurses’ perception of working in maternity units. The data, collected through semi-structured, in-depth interviews, were analyzed using Dikelman & Allen’s method [15]. Five themes, namely a feeling of frustration and failure, humanitarian and spiritual work, satisfaction, capable and competent, and confusion, emerged during data analysis. Nurses' perception of working in a maternity unit was described in five main themes. These findings can help nurses and other healthcare personnel in maternity hospitals to provide the patients with better care. However, further research in this field is warranted.
