The authors present an exploratory study realized with 103 Brazilian Colleges of Nursing. They aimed at identifying the types of assistance offered to the undergraduate students. The results of 61 courses revealed two categories: 1 - offering pedagogic-administrative support services, showing the concern with the formal orientation about nursing education; 2 - adding any kind of care delivered to the students needs. Nine courses surpassed the essential needs (mentioned above), concerning with the student's mental health.
