Abstract

ABSTRACT: Women who work, yet remain poor and uninsured, struggle to live with limited resources. This phenomenological study interviewed 57 such women, hearing how they turned to God or other help to accomplish the major theme of life, with additional themes of God and help. Findings can guide nurses caring for these women to validate the importance of nonmonetary resources and assist in obtaining essential community resources to meet their needs.
