Discovering nursing students’ understandings about aseptic technique

This phenomenographic study explored understandings about aseptic technique held by second year undergraduate nurses. Data analysis revealed a range of understandings about aseptic technique from simple to complex, referred to here as global, procedural and principled. The implications of these findings are discussed in relation to safe and effective nursing practice.
