The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore the lived experience of student nurses in Mexico as they are exposed to multidimensional types of violence. Interviews were conducted and transcripts provided case quotes to delineate key words, clusters, categories, and thematic subgroups that emerged. Interviews provided confirmation of themes and of the lived experience of exposure to violence. The study findings provide a foundation for development of interventions to assist students in achieving academic success despite their exposure to violence.
