This study was done to explore deeply the essence and meaning of abortion related experience of nurses. METHODS: Data were collected through in-depth informal interviews, observation, and field records with two nurses from July 1 to July 30, 2015. Data were analyzed using narrative inquiry methodology. RESULTS: Three fundamental themes were derived from data analysis: 'Considering women with abortion-experience as women to be nursed', 'to be absolutely understood', and 'to make us to think how to help'. CONCLUSION: It is significant that this study was carried out holistically on the experience and change in physical, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of nurses with abortion-experience, simultaneously interpreting from the prospective of nurses. Therefore the basis of nursing interventions are suggested; holistic aspects as education, counseling, group meetings, and program assistance for the women, the families, and those concerned with abortion- experience.
