This qualitative study with a documentary research design aims to identify and describe the inclusion of the ethical-humanistic framework in the Pedagogic Projects of the Courses (PPC) of Nursing in the city of Goiânia, state of Goiás. The research was developed in five Higher Education Institutions through the study of the PPC, in which we searched for terms that referred to the ethical-humanistic approach. Two categories were generated: "The education of the ethical-humanistic professional" and "The focus of integrality in the PPC context." Among 218 analyzed syllabuses, only in forty of them did we find some term related to the studied framework. Despite the limited number of selected syllabuses, the detailed analysis of the documents allowed to identify, in all their extent, relevant theoreticalphilosophic aspects of this framework. Thus, the research presents elements that can promote reflections, making the principles of the ethical-humanistic framework effectively guide the curriculum reform in accordance with the current Brazilian educational legislation.
