There is a long tradition of nursing supervision at the Institute for Caring Sciences and Health at Göteborg University, Sweden. Its pedagogic development began in 1989 when process oriented supervision was provided to assist nursing students at different educational levels. Since 2008, students have received three terms of supervision, which is compulsory in nursing education. The students are supervised by nurse teachers as well as by professionally active clinical nurses, all of whom hold the postgraduate degree for Nurse Supervisors. In this chapter, the authors identify, describe and synthesise the core phenomena in nursing supervision based on their work with students. The three emerging dimensions regarding the core phenomena were: (1) value-based phenomena; (2) upholding and nurturing relationship, and (3) the meaning of supervision space.
