The Telenursing Project is an activity that gathers both the extension and research of the School of Nursing, Federal University of Minas Gerais, included in the National Program for Telehealth. It offers new ways of providing assistance, collaborating with the transformation of practical realities by offering Distance Education for the healthcare team. The present study evaluated the continuing distance education for the nursing staff of the Basic Health Units. This is a descriptive study, in which a qualitative approach was used, performed in municipalities registered by the program. The sample comprised 17 participants. Data collection was performed through interviews, which were recorded and transcribed. Three categories emerged from the analysis: the significance of the Telenursing Project in terms of assistance; the use of Telenursing in the process of distance training, and; use of the tools in the Telenursing Project. The results showed that distance education is a teaching and learning strategy in health that makes use of information technology resources that contributes to the continuing education of nursing professionals, providing better care delivery.
