ABSTRACT
Objective: understanding the process of death and dying in hospitals in the perception of undergraduate nursing students. Methodology: this is about a qualitative study, from phenomenological approach, performed of seven nursing students at the University José Rosário Vellano. The research project has been approved by the Ethics Committee in Research of the University José Rosário Vellano (protocol number 76/2009). Results: through the interviews was enabled the construction of five categories: 1) Thinking about death, experiencing anxiety, 2) Professionalism in the view of academics and involvement with the cases, 3) The psychological impact at the time of loss and 4) The importance of family care of the patient; 5) Understanding the need to discuss death in academic education. Conclusion: the results showed that the students feel unprepared to deal with death, demonstrating a degree of anxiety, insecurity to talk about it, this is because the discussion of this issue is not frequent in the graduation, we believe that the creation of spaces for self-knowledge, awareness and reflection on the theme of death in the universities, would allow the training of professionals not only able to watch life for the rehabilitation or cure, but also prepared to deal with death.
