Objective: to analyze the nursing team's knowledge with regard to the hydric balance. Methodology: this is an exploratory and descriptive research, with a qualiquantitative approach, developed in a private hospital of Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil, on July 2009. Data collection was carried out through a semi-structured questionnaire applied to the nursing team and the analysis focused on the hydric balance of hospitalized patients, whose data were collected from the medical records through a structured script. The data were displayed in graphs and based on the literature about the theme. This research was approved by the Ethics Committee under the Protocol 07520798 2 FR 17410. Results: the concepts of hydric balance provided by the nurses participating in the study are determined mainly according to the way of controlling the standard patients' hydric balance. Conclusion: one believes the results of this study can trigger the development of other works evidencing the need of approaching issues that improve the care provided by the nursing team.
