BETTANCOURT, Lorena; MUNOZ, Luz Angelica; MERIGHI, Miriam Aparecida Barbosa e SANTOS, Marcia Fernandes dos. Nursing teachers in clinical training areas: a phenomenological focus. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.5, pp. 1197-1204. ISSN 0104-1169. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692011000500018.
During theoretical and practical activities in clinical training areas, nursing teachers provide the bases needed for the development of future professionals. The goal is to understand the experience of nursing teachers with nursing students in clinical training areas. Therefore, a phenomenological qualitative method was chosen, and Martin Heidegger's philosophical framework was used to support data analysis. Five faculty from a Chilean university participated in the study. The analysis permitted discovering the following themes: being a faculty at the hospital, contact with nurse practitioners and being a faculty in care teaching. The study demonstrated that teaching/care integration is a constructive element that facilitates the teaching and learning process, aiming to prepare nursing professionals who incorporate the bases of authentic care into their activities.
