Objective: to evaluate the knowledge of nurse about of the monitoring the central venous pressure (CVP) in the water column in critically ill patients. Method: exploratory quantitative study, conducted in two intensive care units with 24 nurses. Data were collected from January to April 2010, after the Research Ethics Committee of the Hospital São José approved the project (Protocol protocolo 055/2009, CAAE 0056.0.042.000-9), with a questionnaire, grouped in absolute and relative frequencies and displayed in figures and tables. Results: the sample were mainly female, mean age of 38.2 and 13.4 years after graduation, 45.8% knew the definition of PVC and 54.16% correctly reported their normal values. While 62.5% have not mentioned difficulties related to PVC, there was doubt about the position of central venous catheter by x-ray check and identification phlebostatic axis of the patient. Conclusion: we identified a lack of knowledge related to the importance and goals of CVP monitoring the patient's hemodynamic impairment, being essentially an in-service education on the topic.
