RAMIREZ ELIZONDO, Noé Alberto; QUINTANA ZAVALA, Mª Olga; SANHUEZA ALVARADO, Olivia  and  VALENZUELA SUAZO, Sandra Verónica. The emancipatory paradigm and its influence on the development of nursing knowledge. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.30, pp.410-421. ISSN 1695-6141.

This article arises as a need to reflect on the influence of emancipatory paradigm in the Discipline of Nursing. A literature review was conducted in the databases Scielo, Latindex, Redalyc and written documents (books). It was identified that the emancipatory paradigm as a means of reflection and critique of power traditionally exercised, proposes measures for participation and social justice, including important ethical traces in the human action. In the specific case of Nursing, this emancipatory process reorients the traditional view on the essence of being and doing, so that openness to reflective thinking to modify the way in which the profession is positioned, delivers nursing care and teach future Nurses.
