Abstract

Objective: To analyze the perceptions and meanings attributed by nurses working in the prison units and to characterize the prison units belonging to the Prison Coordination of the Western Region of the State of São Paulo, Brazil.


Method: Descriptive study with qualitative approach performed in 19 prison units, 35 nurses, semi-structured interview, organized and analyzed through the technique of the Discourse of the Collective Subject (DCS), based on the ethical and bioethical theoretical framework.


Result: From the analysis of the data emerged two themes, Challenges of the work of the nurse in Prison Units and Meaning of the work.


Final considerations: The ethical dilemmas daily lived by the nurses were evidenced and there is a need for the inspection bodies of the profession, class entities, human rights associations, civil society and the Secretariat of Penitentiary Administration to mobilize in favor of full professional practice.
