Abstract [en]

Background: The care for patients with mental disorders have changed and this has led to higher demands on nurses. Research is conducted globally within the subject and studies have shown that nurses enquire more theoretical knowledge and practical training. In the Gambia, nursing education is conducted by five different schools and the country has one psychiatric hospital. Purpose: To explore nurses’ experiences and challenges while caring for patients with mental disorders in the Gambia. Method: The study was conducted using a quantitative cross-sectional design. Result: The result showed that the respondents enquire more education, that the work is challenging and that the majority of respondents have experience of working with patients with mental disorders. Conclusions:  There is a need for internal education for nurses on their workplaces and more research within the subject.
