In this narrative, I do not plan to be a cold spectator who captures and relates facts for use, but one who "lived" each moment. This is also a contribution to history, once one tries to illuminate the present remembering the happenings of 4 decades (1953 to 1993) of the College of Nursing at Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo, focusing on the beginning, the changes , the adjustment and perspectives.
