Summary Seeks to understand how culture constructs and gives meaning to nursing and the experience of being nursed. Layers of understanding become evident as analysis of descriptive data, along with an appreciation of the power of cultural norms in society, reveals how culture gives meaning to nursing and being nursed, subsequently shaping behaviour. These layers of understanding describe a pathway through health culture, disclosing unwritten rules and expected cultural norms of behaviour for people who enter our health care system
