MOREIRA, Almerinda; PORTO, Fernando e OGUISSO, Taka. Registered news about the professional school of nurses within the journal "O Brazil-Médico" - 1890-1922. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2002, vol.36, n.4, pp. 402-407. ISSN 1980-220X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-62342002000400015.
Historical and descriptive study with the objective to identify registered news about the Professional School of Nurses (PSN), currently Alfredo Pinto School of Nursing, in the mentioned journal and referred period. Methodology utilized was the documental analysis. The journal was regularly published and 1632 issues were examined, from that period of 32 years. It was found 16 news related to the PSN, the National Mental Hospital, Nursing and Nursing courses. From this total, only five news were indeed directely related to PSN. Analysing their content, two fundamental ideas appear: 1) the PSN had two openings, in 1897 and in 1906, which ratifies its legal creation on 27/09/1890 and 2) it indicates the operational difficulties of PSN, at that time, due to the low qualification of the candidates to the nursing school.
