This article deals with professional role acquisition in nurses. All nursing education take place in specific social settings. Each social setting is one element of a complex system of process factors. The student nurse's own role-enaction is constantly subject to modification or adaptation. Role-enaction as well as all social interaction can be grouped into three types: change-drama, interchange-ritual and maintenance-routine. Student nurses must learn what is significant for the role of the professional nurse. How is this accomplished and how do they learn the nurses's role in a specific situation?
