Nursing courses have been investing in innovations in the education process, betting on active and problematizing methodologies, which offer the nursing students experiences in social reality. This study aims to report teaching and learning experiences linked to a broadened teaching, research and extension program based on nursing theories. This is a report of experiences developed through a theoretical and practical activity carried out by means of weekly visits of nursing teachers and students to families living in precarious socioeconomic conditions as well as in poor environmental situation. The results show an active, dialogic and interactive pedagogy capable of fostering solidarity networks of cooperation and promoting a polysemic environment favored by the reflections on the emerging social problems. Thus, inciting the protagonism and social entrepreneurship in education on the basis of nursing theories meaning developing knowledge capable to dialog and integrate the different learning experiences through the development of practices in consonance with the exercise of citizenship and social transformation.
