SOUZA JUNIOR, Edison Vitório de et al. A enfermagem brasileira pede socorro. Enfermería Actual de Costa Rica [online]. 2021, n.40, 42180. ISSN 1409-4568.


This essay aims to reflect and increment the dissemination of the current panorama of Brazilian Nursing with a view to sensitizing society, organs, entities and the professional category.


This essay was developed through the analysis of articles and legal documents selected at random in the research platforms in order to theoretically support the results discussed here. After years of struggle without significant advances, the passivity of the professionals certainly needs to be reduced and contradicted by the conceptions of charitable and subservient Nursing. Thus, the subjects involved must actively and emancipating assume the responsibility to fight in defense of the profession and all those who benefit from it. It is suggested that Brazilian Nursing intensify the political-participatory position in claiming movements and occupy decision-making spaces to fight for the category.


In this way, the profession will be strengthened and, consequently, will culminate in its valorization and better working conditions, positively implying in the assistance actions.

Keywords : working-conditions; gender-and-health; occupational-health; public-health.
