Thai female nurses are assumed to experience Work-family conflict, because they are responsible for both family matters and the elderly support, while they are expected to maintain the long-term relationship with their organizations. So how to balance loyalty to and the demands of the family on the one side and the loyalty to and demands of the organization on the other side was investigated. Twenty-six nurses in 3 university hospitals were interviewed. By using Template Analysis, the preliminary result show that notions in line with a collectivist culture appear to facilitate the interface of work and families; where work is also experienced as a ‘family’.
