Objectives: to identify whether nurses recognize the completion of the technical procedure of installation of nasal CPAP in newborns and trigger the pain, and to propose, from the results obtained, the insertion of this technique, the list of procedures painful. Methods: this is a descriptive, exploratory study, which uses the quantitative approach. It was conducted in March 2009 at the intensive care unit neonatal (NICU) of a Federal institution from Rio de Janeiro city. The data were collected through a questionnaire, which were quantitatively, and analysis was performed using the frequencies and relative percentage. The study was approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (protocol number 0044/08). Results: from the 11 nurses interviewed, only 2 (18%) signaled the nasal CPAP as painful. The reality is that pain and its management in infants receive little attention in clinical practice. Conclusion: we conclude that there is need for a paradigm shift with regard to installation of nasal CPAP, which needs to be reviewed under a scientific approach, critical and reflective, considering the complexity of making it so we can play and do not care only a nurse.
