Regards sur l'expérience des adultes en études promotionnelles : le cas des aides-soignantes en formation infirmière

Abstract : This empirical-inductive research study examines the recognition of the experience of nursing assistants in nursing education by tutors/trainers. It also examines the role of this recognition on certain atypical behaviours observed when learning a new profession. First, the questionnaires and semi-structured exploratory interviews, which were treated qualitatively and quantitatively, revealed discrepancies between the verbatim of the trainers and those of the former caretaker students regarding their experience. To understand them, the notion of experience as a constituent of the adult's identity is mobilized; then, the theoretical framework of identity dynamics made it possible to study the identity strategies potentially put in place in the face of this triple context of transition both of profession, resumption of studies, and also of alternating training. Theoretical insights allow us to hypothesize that the variable recognition of the experience of former caregivers in nursing education by tutors/trainers can explain certain behaviours, called "atypical critical incidents", by interpreting them as identity strategies. The central investigation verifies the variable recognition of students' experience by tutors/trainers. This variability can be seen between the actors involved in training, but also between the different public health institutions investigated. Finally, the modelling study of 36 atypical critical incidents shows that, faced with the gaps between the "for oneself" experience and the recognition of the experience by others, visible identity strategies are then put in place by the former caregiver students in order to restore identity coherence. Moreover, when the positive self-image is threatened, other identity strategies aiming at recognizing others are deployed by all students; invisible, and sometimes dangerous, they represent a praxéological opportunity.
