OLIVEIRA, Naiana Alves et al. Specialization in nursing care projects: contributions in professional practice of those enrolled. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.4, pp. 697-704. ISSN 0104-0707. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072009000400011.
This descriptive, exploratory study with a qualitative approach aimed to better understand the contributions of the Nursing Care Projects Specialization Course of the College of Nursing and Obstetrics, of the Federal University of Pelotas in the professional practice of those enrolled. The data were collected using the focus group technique, involving 10 nursing students from the course and treated with thematic content analysis. The Nursing Care Projects Specialization Course allowed better understanding of the nursing work practice for those enrolled. It was evidenced as fundamental for professional knowledge construction in relation to care practices. The enrolled nursing students recognize the importance of participating in a graduate course in lato sensu as a contribution to their professional qualification and enriching their knowledge of care practices.
