This study explored with expert nurses in the UK how nursing wisdom can be developed in new and junior nurses. Carper's patterns of knowing and Benner's novice-to-expert continuum formed the theoretical framework. Employing a constructionist research methodology with participant engagement in co-construction of findings, data were collected via two separate cycles comprising four consecutive sessions followed by a nationally-advertised mini-conference. Empirical, ethical, personal, and aesthetic knowing were considered evident in junior nurses. Junior nurses in the UK seem to lack a previously-unrecognized domain of organizational knowing without which they cannot overcome hegemonic barriers to the successful development of nursing praxis.
