ASSAD, Luciana Guimarães  and  VIANA, Lígia de Oliveira. Practical knowledge in the formation of the nurse. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2003, vol.56, n.1, pp.44-47. ISSN 0034-7167.

The study, carried through with nurses at the University Hospital Pedro Ernesto, looked to reflect on practical knowledge in the formation of the nurse. In the construction of the theoretical referential, the contributions of Patricia Benner, Phillipe Perrenoud and Donald Shön have been very relevant. From a methodological point of view, it consisted of a case study, with a qualitative approach; from semi-structured interviews with nurses involved in assisting the patient. The findings demonstrate that the competences that support the professional exercise are built on practical knowledge, theoretical knowledge, life experience, and professional socialization.

Keywords : continued nursing education; clinical competence; professional competence.
