|This study clarifies the practical knowledge of oncology nurses in Japan based on the narrative of nursing practice for women with breast cancer who are experiencing stress due to uncertainty. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 15 nurses who had practical experience treating patients with breast cancer and specialized qualifications in the field of oncology nursing in Japan. A thematic analysis of the interviews was conducted. The following four themes were identified with regard to how nurses help patients cope with uncertainty: 1. making inferences from the current atmosphere, 2. unravelling the entanglements of the mind, 3. reflecting on the past, looking to the future, and then returning to the present moment and 4. shifting the focus towards things that are certain.
