FERREIRA ROQUETE, F. et al. "¿Quién soy yo?" con la palabra, enfermeros supervisores de un hospital privado de Belo Horizonte. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.27, pp.259-274. ISSN 1695-6141.

This paper aims to understand how supervisor-nurses of a big private hospital in Belo Horizonte build their professional identity. In order to do that, a descriptive analytical case study was carried out in which nine supervisor nurses were included. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and the analysis bymeans of the content analysis technique. The analysis focused on: the supervisor nurses' perception concerning the new management procedure used at the hospital; supervisor-nurses' routine at work; nursing education and professional practice; qualifications of an ideal nurse for the management position; and supervisor-nurses' carrier expectations. The results showed that the new management strategy used by thehospital was considered a significant space for the supervisor-nurses' identity reconfiguration, especially because it demonstrates a disharmony between academic instruction and daily practice at work.
