dc.description.abstractFramed within Parse's theory of human becoming, this descriptive, exploratory study addressed the research question: What is the meaning of the experience of bearing witness for nurses in practice with persons living their dying. Study themes in the language of the participants were enduring commitment surfaces gifts and burdens, telling-not telling mingles with closeness-reserve. and fostering continuing competent practice. Interpreted in the language of the researcher, study findings were written as tenacious devotion engenders exquisite encumbrances, guarded intimacy, and fostering cherished confidence. Study themes were linked primarily with theoretical concepts of valuing, connecting-separating, revealing-concealing, and transforming. Findings were discussed in light of relevant literature, and possibilities for nursing practice, education, policy, and further research were offered.en
