TERRA, Marlene Gomes et al. The stated and non-stated on the part of the nurse-teacher being in the comprehension of sensibility. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.5, pp. 558-564. ISSN 1984-0446. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672008000500005.
This study aims to describe the stated and non-stated information in the comprehension of sensibility on the part of the nursing teacher-nurse being in the teaching of Nursing. The theoretical- philosophical reference was sought in the Phenomenology of Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and the methodological support was based on the hermeneutic phenomenology of Paul Ricoeur. Nineteen nursing teachers-nurses from a Public Institution of Higher Education in the south of Brazil were interviewed during the months of November and December 2006. Data analysis revealed sensibility as the base for the development of doing, thinking, caring and doing research. Without sensibility, the relations and interactions in teaching in Nursing will be only techniques and theories of healthcare.
