RODRIGUEZ, Y.; MEJIAS, M.  and  MORENO, M.. History of the human resource training of nursing in Venezuela. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.24. ISSN 1695-6141.

Nursing education has been immersed in the historical development of society and related variables-economic, social and political-that have influenced its development. Thus, to understand the present it is imperative to look to its past. This past shows us that nursing has evolved from a craft to a profession, but unlike other professions which since the beginning of the university have been constructed as such, nursing had to wait a long time to be taught at universities, which arose as human societies become more complex. People are required to learn a practice supported by a technique and even a theory on how to do it, and methods are needed to convey the knowledge. This requirement means that education is intentional, systematic and organized, which is influential in the creation of the university and later in the training of nurses. The following is a literature review of training for nurse practitioners of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

Keywords : Education; nursing; occupation; education; history.
