RAMOS, Flávia Regina Souza; BORGES, Laurete Medeiros; BREHMER, Laura Cavalcanti de Farias  and  SILVEIRA, Luciana Ramos. Ethical education of nurses: indicators of change on the perception of professors. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.4, pp.485-492. ISSN 0103-2100.

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the indicators of change identified by professors in the nursing education setting, in relation to its ethical dimension. METHODS: The research was a type of case study, with a post-structuralist approach, with a selection of six undergraduate courses in nursing in the State of Santa Catarina, which were developed in focus groups with 50 professors. RESULTS: Professors indicated changes in three different scenarios: the scenario of society, science and academia; the scenario of nursing work and the local scenario; the way students present themselves within this context. CONCLUSIONS: The changes permeate local, national and global dimensions, fueled by transformations in social and political structure with evidence involved in thinking about and applying professional ethics.
