Felipe Clementino Gomes, Eurípedes Gil de França, Inácia Sátiro Xavier de França, Francisco Stélio de Sousa

Abstract


Aim: To analyze the scientific participation of nursing graduates; to investigate academic scientific production of graduates and check research fostering in the institutions analyzed. Method: A descriptive, exploratory, quantitative study conducted in six nursing colleges of Paraíba, with 170 graduates who responded to a particular form between October and November 2011. For data analysis we used Epi Info 3.5.2®. Results: It was found that 22.90% of students participated in undergraduate research projects. Of these, 61.53% were from public institutions. The average quantity of publications was 1.73 abstracts and 0.25 articles per student, with a preference for the 'Public Health' area (34.10%). Only 9.40% intended to enter an academic career upon completion. Discussion: Difficulties in the fixation of undergraduates in scientific activities are related to the institutional fostering to promote research. Conclusion: It is necessary to rethink the scientific activities for the construction of new directions for the profession, enhancing the training of nurses.
