CAMEJO GIMENEZ, Rafael Alejandro  and  REBOLLEDO MALPICA, Dinora Margarita. Meanings of the university links-community for actors involved in community nursing chair of the dean of science university health Centrocidental "Lisandro Alvarado". Enferm. glob.

This study aimed to generally know the meanings of the University-Community link to social actors involved with the Department of Community Nursing Dean of Health Sciences at the University "Lisandro Alvarado." It took a phenomenological approach based on the references Symbolic Interaction theory, structuralism and existentialism Dialectic of Husserl. We selected nine (09) social actors, three (03) teachers, three (03) students of the eighth semester and three (03) members of the health committee of the community of Las Tunas in the village of Tamaca. We used open interview technique to get the information from which emerged the meanings through interpretation. The findings showed that: 1) for teachers there is a clear and definite meaning of Community Nursing and what is expected of students. 2) For the students through the meanings they gave to their own experiences play a dynamic role. However, many of them expressed that they have no vocation for the performance of community service, despite having knowledge in this field and finally 3) for members of the community through the meaning they gave to their experience showed that there are significant changes in the development of activities, but they stated that the values should be strengthened. As final reflections it was revealed that there is a link between the university and the community which is weak in some aspects such as resources, community profile and vocation of the student.
