SENA, Roseni Rosângela de  and  SILVA, Kênia Lara da. Nursing as a supportive partner of the Brazilian National Health System. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.spe2, pp.1792-1796. ISSN 0080-6234.

This article is based on the authors' reflections from following the successive accumulations of the Brazilian National Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde - SUS). We present our evaluation of the SUS, emphasizing what we consider to be the utmost progresses, recognizing the need to reaffirm a present agenda of political and social commitments for the System. We defend that Brazilian nursing, with the processes of professionalizing its workers, is a strong partner of the SUS.
