MENDES, Maria Angélica  and  BASTOS, Marisa Antonini Ribeiro. Nursing process: sequences in care make the difference. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2003, vol.56, n.3, pp.271-276. ISSN 0034-7167.

The emphasis of this qualitative investigation was to get to know the significance system, its values and beliefs through the male nurse's perspective in his confrontation with the new methodological proposal of care in a Hospital Institution. Ethnographic interview and data analysis, which was fundamental in James Spradley's studies, were the methods used for collecting data. From data immersion and inventory approach immerged the following theme: "Sequence in care makes the difference", which constitutes the main purpose of this study, providing us with opportunities to reflect about and reveal an activity that up until now ha been nebulous and reticent in the Brazilian nursing scenario. In this way, the male nurses are taken into a perspective concerning the understanding and action of the methodology of assistance.
