How did nurses, who have left or are planning to leave their organization, experience working in self-managing teams? In this study, nurses who have left or are about to leave the organization, were asked about their experience of working in self-managing teams and their reasons for leaving. Work experience was examined from a meaningful work perspective. For this study, 15 former employees of one healthcare organization were interviewed. Seven respondents indicated that working in self-managing teams was one of the reasons to leave. The results showed that for most respondents not all dimensions of meaningful work were fulfilled in a self-managing team. The aim of this study is not to generalize the results of our study, but to stimulate further research into the work experience in self-managing teams.
