Abstract

A qualitative research design that is explorative, descriptive and contextual in nature was employed in order to understand and describe the professional nurses’ perception of the implementation of a quality circle programme in a public hospital in the Eastern Cape Province. The data-collection techniques were individual semi-structured interviews and field notes. The sample was drawn from a population of 425 Xhosaspeaking professional nurses employed in this institution. The sample comprised eight (8) professional nurses all of whom volunteered for in-depth individual semistructured interviews. All the respondents answered one question: How do you perceive the implementation of the quality circle programme in your hospital?
