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.
