Pain is associated with a wide range of disease and injury, and is sometimes the disease itself. Millions suffer from chronic
pain every year and the effects of pain lead to tremendous costs for health care, rehabilitation, and lost worker productivity,
as well as the emotional, psychological, and financial burden it places on patients and their families. The nurse has a key
role in effective pain management with the need for accurate assessment, prompt intervention, and evaluation of pain relief
measures for positive patient outcomes. An interpretive phenomenological approach was used to frame this research study. The
study employed a purposive sample of two Associate Degree Nurse (ADN) educators and one Baccalaureate (BSN) educator
having personally experienced chronic pain. Semi-structured three-part interviews were conducted using an interview guide.
The participants of study offered a depiction of the lived experience and the interpreter sought commonalities in meanings,
situations, practices, and bodily experiences. Themes emerged, which aligned with and assisted in answering the research
questions. Five essential themes from the study emerged: Vulnerability, physician/provider trust, fear of disability, coping,
and need for pedagogical discourse. Two subthemes: Stoic and alien also emerged. Understanding the live experience of nurse
educators with chronic pain is important and valuable to health care. Nurse educators are responsible and face challenge
in their daily work with the need to teach about chronic pain in the best way possible assuring the best care possible. The
researcher explored the lived experience of nurse educators who have personally experienced chronic pain in order to develop
a better understanding for discovery in nursing curriculum. Implications for nursing curriculum and practice relate to training
nurse educators and students, addressing psychosocial issues, and incorporating how to do better chronic pain assessments
and better manage chronic pain.
