To investigate issues surrounding role extension or expansion in intensive care nursing, a small qualitative study was conducted centred on one intensive care unit (ICU) within a large teaching hospital. Data were collected by semi-structured interviews from a purposive sample of five senior intensive care nurses and three consultant anaesthetists. Four major categories emerged, identified as: interpretation confusion; education for change; struggles for power and task versus autonomy.

The findings revealed that the senior critical care nurses identified themselves as independent, autonomous practitioners involved in clinical decision-making. However, there was evidence of a reluctance to empower more junior staff to perform extended or expanded roles. Medical respondents viewed extended or expanded roles as taking on mechanical tasks for which anyone could be trained to perform.

In conclusion, it is argued that although nursing is maturing in its growth towards professionalization, broader issues such as the legal quagmire, failure to adopt the philosophy of role expansion and the existence of sacred boundaries intra- and inter- professionally need to be addressed.
