Method: A qualitative focus-group methodology was applied. Following purposeful sampling and informed consent of participants. Results: Participated eight individuals. Th e need for enhancement of nurses' participation in decision-making in order for an actual change in their professional role to be achieved was the central theme of participants' narratives. Perceived advancements in professional role performance regarded: evidence-based practice; technology; education, knowledge; clinical skills; research; heightened nurse-physician collaboration. Perceived reasons why these advancements failed to enhance nurses' professional role were lack of meritocracy; competitive relationships; lack of support among nurses; insufficient managerial support; budget limitations. Conclusion: Despite advancements in clinical practice, participants did not deem that their professional role was enhanced significantly, as participation in decision-making and control over practice remain limited. Interventions targeted to enhance nurses' participation in clinical decision-making, and overall professional autonomy are recommended.||ISSN:||0080-6234||DOI:||10.1590/S1980-220X2017014403287||Rights:||This is an Open Access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.||Type:||Article||Affiliation :||Cyprus University of Technology
