The data consist of field notes in which the everyday life of practical nurse students was observed in an educational institution for social and health care in the capital area of Finland.

The field notes include 120 days of observations throughout the three-year education programme. In addition to classes, the researcher also observed social situations outside them. In addition to field notes, interviews of students and teachers were collected (see FSD2735 and FSD2736).

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
