BRAGA, Eliana Mara  and  SILVA, Maria Júlia Paes da. How to follow communicative competence progress in nursing students. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2006, vol.40, n.3, pp.329-335. ISSN 0080-6234.

This work is aimed at suggesting methodological foundations for following Nursing student's progress in communicative competence. Using qualitative methodology and theoretical reference of interpersonal communication, the research was developed through interviews with 13 professors with experience both in teaching activities and communication research in Nursing. Interviewees reported that they follow their students' progress in communicative competence through the observation of their communicative abilities with patients; by fostering moments for the expression of thoughts, feelings and perceptions; by giving feedback on the development of communicative abilities; by stimulating their communication abilities; by performing formative assessments and tutoring.

Keywords : Interpersonal relations; Education, nursing; Professional competence; Students, nursing.
