The purpose of this paper was to identify the neces-sity of a theory construction about nurses' professional identity and to describe a beginning substantive middle range theory. A conceptual map was made using 21 empirical-based articles in nursing, psychology, sociol-ogy, and education from 6 databases. The conceptual map indicated that there was not enough evidence on what kinds of factors influence the professional identity of nurses and how they establish professional identity.

Two inductive studies were used to develop a substan-tive middle-range theory of nurses' professional identity.
