Study 1: Initial Insights into Work Agency in the Domain of Geriatric Care Nursing

  • Michael Goller


So far not much is known about howgeriatric care nurses exercise their agency in work contexts, how these agentic actions explain their work-related learning and development, or what contextual factors foster or hinder their engagement in those agentic actions. Large parts of the theoretical discussion presented in Chapters 2 and 3 have not been explicitly focussed on geriatric care nurses. Moreover, almost no empirical results about the agency of geriatric care nurses exist.
