Objective: to identify nursing scientific output related to Family Planning and Reproductive Rights. Methods: the Virtual Health Library (VHL) bibliography database was researched: International Literature in Health Sciences (MEDLINE), Latin American and Caribbean Literature in Health Sciences (LILACS), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO) and Nursing Database (BDENF). Publications related to family planning themes, reproductive rights and nursing, classified as scientific articles and published in the 2000-2008 period nationwide were selected. Data collection was performed in October 2008. Results: twenty-three articles were selected. It was found that nursing articles on family planning and reproductive rights encompassing four areas (expertise and professional practice related to Family Planning, use of contraceptive methods, health education in Family Planning, and gender and Family Planning) have been published since 2000. Conclusion: it was concluded that nursing has seeked to participate in the family planning and reproductive rights fields; however, further advances as to technical qualification towards discussions which can go beyond a controlling discourse in this area need to be implemented.
