Self-awareness can help nurses increase their concern for patients and perceive the patients’ real needs. Conversely, group dialogues help learners engage in self-exploration as well as facilitate their diversified and deep thinking. Therefore, group discussions have been viewed as a feasible nursing education strategy. The purpose of this study was to explore and analyze the development of self-awareness among nurses through group activities. Using a descriptive and qualitative research design, data were collected at 13 sessions of 90-minute unstructured group meetings from October 2014 to January 2015. The group activity process was audiorecorded and transcribed, and the transcripts were further examined through content analysis. The major research findings were as follows: 1. the development of self-awareness includes the three stages, namely mirror reaction, resonance, and awareness; 2. selfawareness includes: (1) a self developed according to others examined through gaining others’ recognition and being mindful of others’ opinions, and (2) a true self developed through seeing oneself and looking inside oneself. The results of this study can serve as referential information for nursing education to elevate nurses’ self-awareness.
