Objective: to evaluate the role of nursing in clinical research in Brazil, the focus of attention and collaboration in international and multicenter studies. Method: the study analyzes the participation of nursing in clinical research, in the functions of researcher and study coordinator. Results: in most cases, the studies are on drugs and / or medical procedures, in which the nursing staff does not exert a major role as a researcher. In few clinical studies, methods are evaluated to address problems that affect the health of human beings from the perspective of nursing as a practice and science. The research profile, characterized by the approximation with basic sciences and the incorporation of the scientific method in everyday practice, is undergoing a change. From a team member, the nurse is evolving to the role of principal investigator, designing studies and innovating the way of clinical practice is considered. Conclusion: we need to evaluate professional practice and the way nursing care has been established and adequate it for research development particularly aimed at solving clinical nursing problems.
