OJEDA, Beatriz Sebben et al. Knowledge and truths about nursing: discourse of new students. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.1, pp. 78-84. ISSN 0034-7167. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672008000100012.
It is a study with a qualitative approach that proposes to analyze truths regimes that pass by and along Nursing as a profession, as manifested by students entering in the Graduate Course 2004/2, 2005/1 and 2005/2. The Discourse Analysis has been used as a methodological option for analyzing the data, under Michel Foucault's approaches. Three great themes have come out of such context of analysis and discussion: the traversing of gender knowledges in Nursing practice; Nursing as a knowledge made hierarchical; making as a might in Nursing's academic and professional day-by-day. Social conceptions became self evident, going through invisible knowledges that legitimate health and nursing practices, making them unquestionable.
