Abstract [sv]

Undersköterskor i Sverige löper ingen större risk för att bli arbetslösa, varken nu eller på sikt. Detta är däremot en yrkesgrupp som av tradition inte verkar karriärutveckla i någon större utsträckning. Yrkesprogram attraherar i hög utsträckning elever från hem som saknar högre studievana, och dessa är underrepresenterade på eftergymnasiala utbildningar. Vidare, många anställda inom kvinnodominerade lågstatusbranscher tenderar att fastna i dessa.

Men är tanken när elever väljer vård- och omsorgsprogrammet på gymnasiet att arbeta som undersköterska? Vi tror nämligen att många elever som väljer detta program 2017 har höga ambitioner - oavsett socioekonomisk bakgrund - och snarare ser undersköterskeyrket som en strategisk språngbräda till vidare studier. Därför vill vi intervjua några ungdomar som sökt vård- och omsorgsprogrammet till hösten gällande deras val, och hur de visualiserar sin framtida karriär. För att få en bredd på denna studie vill vi även intervjua några vuxna yrkesaktiva undersköterskor, och undersöka hur de tänkte när de sökte sig till vården. Vi kommer huvudsakligen granska vår empiri ur ett klassanalytiskt perspektiv. 

Abstract [en]

It is highly unlikely for enrolled nurses to be made redundancy, neither today nor in the near future. This professional group traditionally lack prospective of career development and career opportunities. The health social care programme at upper secondary school attracts students who come from homes which lack experiences from higher studies. Furthermore the group is predominately represented by women, a low-status female profession, were many employees tend to get stuck.

Is the students’ objective, when applying to health and social care programme at upper secondary school, to work as enrolled nurse? We assume that many students who apply to this programme in 2017 have greater ambitions – regardless of socioeconomic background – and rather see the profession, enrolled nurse, as a mean to go into higher studies. Hence we would like to interview a few students who have applied to the health and social care programme in autumn 2017 and investigate how they look upon their future career. In order to get a deeper understanding, we have also chosen to interview a few adults who are working as of today, as enrolled nurses, to find out their thoughts regarding choice of profession. Primarily, our empirics will be conducted from an analysis of class perspective.
