Abstract

Purpose: This paper examines the findings from an exit interview with a cardiometabolic health nurse (CHN) following a 26-week trial. Design and Methods: The CHN participated in a semi-structured exit interview following completion of the 26-week trial. Applied thematic analysis was used to identify themes contained in the resultant transcript. Findings: Contrary to the literature, the CHN did not consider additional training necessary to undertake the role. The CHN felt additional information regarding the research implications of the trial and greater organizational support would contribute to better consumer and health service outcomes. Practice Implications: While personally rewarding, more can be done to help the CHN role reach its potential.
