The research objective was to explore the experiences of nurses in making the initial decision to perform resuscitation in critical ill preterm neonates in neonates ward. Methods: The design study is qualitative interpretative phenomenological approach. Deep Interview had used open ended questions involved 6 nurses in neonatal ward. Data were collected and analyzed using thematic analyzed approach based on Braun & Clarke, 2006. Results: The study resulted in two themes, namely early detection of emergency and intuition nurse. Early detection of emergency can be used as consideration for the nurses to be ready to face the possibility resuscitation can occur at any time, thereby reducing the risk of death and disability in premature neonates. Intuition nurse built from experience, sensitivity and automation of action. Intuition nurse can shorten the time and accuracy of initial decision making in resuscitation.
