Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences (APEs) reported by nurses consist of apparitions, “coincidences,” death-bed visions, and other anomalous phenomena, sometimes in relation to patients.
AIMS
The aims were (1) to determine the extent of occurrence of APEs in nurses from one-single and multiple hospitals, and to relate them to work stress, absorption, schizotypy, hallucination and empathy, and (2) to carry out a retrospective study with a sample of interviewed nurses.
METHOD
We received 344 questionnaires from 36 hospitals in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which were grouped into 235 experiencers and 109 nonexperiencers. We hypothesized that nurses experiencers will tend to score higher on work stress, on schizotypy proneness, on absorption, and on empathy than those who do not report such experiences. Additionally, 38 nurses from three hospitals took part in a two-year retrospective APE´s qualitative approach.
RESULTS
Nurses reporting APEs did not tend to score higher on work stress, however, nurses reporting APEs scored higher on psychological absorption, proneness to hallucinate, and also scored higher on schizotypy, and cognitive/emotional comprehension than nurses nonexperiencers. Qualitative approach also showed that APEs differed from drug-induced hallucinations, occurred in clear consciousness and provided comfort and consolation for the bereaved.
CONCLUSIONS
Of the 344 nurses surveyed, 12–28% of them reported having had at least one anomalous experience. The most common anomalous experiences reported as experiencers are sense of presence or apparitions, hearing strange noises, voices or dialogues, crying or complaining, and knowing the disease intuitively; and as listeners of their patients/peers’ experiences, are near death experiences, anomalous healing after religious intervention, and experiences in relation with children. Interviewees’ reports suggested that APEs are not uncommon.

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Using existing reports of Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences (APE) by nurses in hospital and health center settings, the aim was to determine the extent of occurrence of certain types of anomalous perceptual experiences and their relationship to the nurses’ job stress, proneness to hallucination, and psychological absorption. From the total number of 130 participants recruited from nursing departments, we received 100 usable questionnaires from eight hospitals and health centers in Argentina. Using the Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences in Nurse & Health Workers Survey (which measures frequency of paranormal/anomalous experiences) (see Appendix), 54 experiencer nurses (APE) and 46 control (non-experiencer nurses) were reclustered. All of them also filled out the Maslach Burnout Inventory, the Hallucinations Experiences Questionnaire, and the Tellegen Absorption Scale. While nurses reporting such experiences did not tend to experience greater job stress, those who reported a combination of hallucination perceptual experiences and a high level of psychological absorption tended to score higher for anomalous/paranormal experiences compared with those who did not report such experiences.”

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
evaluate the type and frequency of unusual perceptual experiences in hospital areas, as well as its relationship with work stress and absorption, and compare such experiences in nurses who have had.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
A sample of 39 nurses with such experiences and a control group of 61 professionals (without experiences) were analyzed. The nurses completed four instruments: The Survey of Abnormal/Paranormal Experiences in Nurses and Health Workers, the Maslach Burnout Inventory that measures work stress, the Questionnaire of Hallucinatory Experiences that evaluates the tendency of hallucinating, and the Tellegen Absorption Scale that assesses the degree of involvement in perception.
RESULTS:
The professionals that reported such experiences did not tend to experience major work stress, in comparison to a control group, in opposition to the first hypothesis; however, they showed more frequency to abnormal perceptual experiences associated with the capacity of psychological absorption, which resulted in the main predictor between nurses with experience and the control group [ß= 0,33, p= 0,005; R2= 0,12] combining work stress and tendency of hallucination.
CONCLUSION:
The statistical analysis confirms that the nursing professionals that report unusual perceptual experiences, tend to show a greater psychological absorption, likewise, a greater tendency to hallucinate; however, none of these variables is related with work stress. The night shift is the most prone to these experiences.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Reports exist of anomalous/paranormal experiences (APE) by nurses in hospital/health center settings. The aim of this research project is to carry out a descriptive analysis and quantitative/qualitative study of near-death and out of body experiences, experiences sensing a “presence,” seeing an apparition, floating lights, luminescence, or unexplained object movements, hearing strange noises, voices or dialogues, crying or moaning, seeing energy fields, lights or “electric shock” around an patient have had an extrasensory experience, malfunction of equipment or medical intrumental in certain patients, and/or spiritual/paranormal form of intervention. Visions involving the appearance of dead relatives who have come to help patients and residents through the dying process, providing comfort to them and their relatives have been reported. Coincidences are experienced by someone emotionally close but physically to the dying person and who is somehow aware of their moment of death; others describe seeing a light. Other phenomena also include a change of room temperature; clocks stopping synchronistically; accounts of vapors, mists, and shapes around the body at death; and birds or animals appearing and then disappearing. The structure of the nursing study closely follows concurrent research that took place with three of eight hospitals. The main aims are to determine the extent of occurrences of certain types of APEs in hospitals and their relationship to job stress and psychological absorption, to assess the frequency of certain unusual APEs in hospital, to assess the level of psychological absorption of people experiencing these perceptions, and to compare experiences nurses without experience in their degree of job stress and absorption. The hypotheses are (H1) nurses who report these experiences tend to score higher job stress, (H2) tend to score higher greater absorption, and (H3) nurses who report a combination of perceptual experiences and absorption (higher scores) tend to score higher also on job stress than those who do not report such experiences. The nurse experiencers consisted of 39 participants (72% female and 28% male); age range was 22 to 64 years (Mean = 40 years; SD = 11.31 years), 24 (39%) of them work the afternoon shift and 32 (53%) work the night shift. The nurses non-experiencers consisted of 61 participants (82% female and 18% male); age range was 24 to 59 years (Mean = 39.6 years; SD = 11.31 years), from which 21 (54%) of them work the afternoon shift and 17 (43%) work the night shift All of them filled four instruments: The Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences in Nurse & Health Workers (which measures frequency of paranormal/anomalous experiencies), the Maslach Burnout Inventory which is the leading measure of burnout, the Hallucinations Experiences Questionnaire, and the Tellegen Absorption Scale.An open, non-structured interview based on questions of the first instrument was also conducted. The results showed that of the 100 nurses surveyed, 30 of them (30%) reported having had at least one anomalous experience in the hospital setting, in fact the most common experiences are often the feeling of “presences;” hearing strange noises, voices or dialogues, tears or groans of patients; and “knowing” intuitively the disease of patients. It is not confirmed if nurses reporting these experiences tended to experience greater job stress . However, nurses who reported a combination of perceptual experiences and psychological absorption (high level), tended to score higher work stress compared to those who did not report such experiences. Nurses who reported these experiences tended to report greater psychological absorption, and also tended to report greater proneness to hallucinate. The best model was the best predictor absorption in individuals with experience [ß = 0.33, df = 3, p = 0.005; R2 = 0.12] compared to the group without experiences. This suggests that absorption is below the difference between the two groups.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Nurses narrated a number of paranormal experiences consisting in deathbed visions and other anomalous phenomena. The aim of this study was to determine the degree of occurrence of certain unusual perceptual experiences in hospital environments, the so-called anomalous/paranormal experiences frequently reported by physicians and nurses in the hospital environment. Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional and analytic study. Five scales were administered, Survey of Anomalous/Paranormal Experiences for Nurses, Maslach Burnout Inventory, Tellegen Absorption Scale, Oxford-Liverpool Inventory of Feelings and Experiences, and Affective Cognitive Empathy Test on 344 nurses from 36 hospitals and health center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Results: The most common experiences reported by nurses are sensation of presence and/or apparitions, hearing noises, voices or dialogs, crying or wailing, intuitive and extrasensory experiences in relation to their patients, or the reception of said experiences by their own patients, such as near-death experiences, prayer practices or religious interventions with spontaneous healing, and other anomalous experiences related to children.
Discussion: Nurses with experiences also tended to higher absorption, which was confirmed by a tendency to schizotypy and
greater cognitive empathy and emotional understanding than nurses without experiences. Conclusions: Although the hypothesis was not confirmed, according to which nurses with experiences tend to undergo greater labor stress, it was found that nurses with experiences obtained a higher score in the depersonalization factor than nurses without experiences.
