Abstract

Among community health nurses who thrive despite difficult working circumstances, habitual introspection and reflection about job engagement helped them make positive, adaptive adjustments in their working life. A practical implication is the need to educate nurses about the importance of reflection not only over nursing practice but also of habitual introspection and reflection about their job engagement. Nurses in staff development should teach and reinforce the needed skills and habits.
