Abstract


Aim:   to   understand   what   the   nursing   student   participants experienced when taking part in a theoretical-practical course focused on the subject of infant  health.  Method:  this  was  a  phenomenological  study, based  on  the  theoretical framework  of  Maurice  Merleau-Ponty.  This  study  was  carried  out  using  a  qualitative approach.  The  participants  were  30  undergraduate  nursing  students  who  were,  at  the time, in the eighth semester of the course. Results: students can be found everyday in different  environments  and  with  the  children's  family  members.  Once  they  allow themselves  to  be  dazzled  by  the  children,  they  are  under  their  watching  eyes  and  of their family members. Then, the phenomenon occurs, creating the following categories: intersubjectivity as a relationship between students and infants and the intersubjectivity and   empathy   experienced   while   caring   for   children.   Practical   implications:   the implementation  of  theoretical  knowledge  in  practice  will  strengthen  strategies  such  as empathy, leading to the establishment of an intersubjective involvement for those caring for infants. Conclusion: the relation of intersubjectivity is established between students and infants due to the student entering the child version of reality.
