The Nurses and Mothering (NAM) Study investigates the beliefs of intensive mothering amongst nurses who are mothers. This study utilizes gender theory and Sharon Hays’ intensive mothering ideology to analyze survey results from 56 participants. The study found that nurses who are mothers rank low to moderate on an intensive mothering scale from 1 to 5 (5 = strongly agree with intensive mothering). The majority of the findings are statistically insignificant. Lastly, the study describes the general views towards intensive mothering of nurses who are mothers, in addition to analyzing the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on nurse mothers.
