This is a cross-sectional study aimed to determine the prevalence of headaches in a nursing team in a community hospital in inland Rio Grande do Sul/BR. Data collection was made by a self-administered questionnaire to all employees of the team, making a total of 168 subjects. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics by analyzing frequency distribution. The prevalence of headaches found in the study population was 98%. Stress was cited as a trigger factor in 68% of the questionnaires analyzed and pharmacological treatment is used for 86% of this population. Migraine and tension headache were the prevalent types. The data show that headaches can be considered a major public health problem in nursing and, therefore, reveal the need for investments in healthy nursing environments.
