21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: Due to changes in Public Health context, nursing in Brazilian hospitals has looked for adapting to population reality by means of continuing education. It is an essential component to prepare the staff in order to improve work processes. Thisÿstudy aimed to analyze continuing nursing education program in an university hospital in Brazilian South West Region.ÿMethods: Descriptive and exploratory study, done in 2008. Data collection was conducted through interviews. The sample was formed by 50 nurses of several inpatient units.ÿResults: Results showed that most of the nurses looked for professional qualification in Post Graduate Courses and in educative actions in practice environment, by means of courses, meetings, congresses and lectures. Education activities developed yearly by the institution were considered as satisfactory but one observed planning difficulties due to nurse noncompliance and this responsibility being attributed only to the manager. Courses and lectures predominated among developed actions. As teaching and learning strategies the problematic dialog and exposure to real cases highlights. Themes varied from specific technical abilities to behavior aspects. CE process evaluation was performed by means of care audit focused on diagnosing patient needs, evaluating the professional and identifying points that need educationalÿ intervention. Improving suggestions were: structural and didactic resource needs for program implementing, planning consistent to the participants reality and availability, adoption of motivation strategies to ensure nurse adherence. Conclusion: The conclusion is that continuing education was considered by the nurses as a significant strategy for assistance quality improving, specially in the context of an university hospital where it occurs not only assistance but also academic formation.
