Abstract

Studies with nursing continuing education are common in the literature with a predominance of qualitative approaches. Quantitative assessments are punctual and focused on a single quality indicator, and few studies relate these indicators to the profile of nursing staff. The objective of the study was to describe the Training Cycles of the Clinical Hospital of Uberlândia as a strategy of a Nursing Continuing Education Program and evaluate the attendance indicators and their association with the nursing staff profile. The Training Cycles of the Clinical Hospital of Uberlândia are cyclic courses that are offered continually, in a mandatory participation regime, during work hours, outside of the hospital, focused on Nursing staff. The study was conducted in 2013/2014 and has a documentary character. It was held in a public high complexity university hospital in Brazil. The Relative Frequency Attendance was calculated in relation to the nursing professional category and shift. Attendance indicators were affected by professional category. Participation increased over time for the technical level (assistants and nursing technicians) and decreased for nurses. We found an attendance rate of 54.49% in nursing hospital staff. The attendance indicators were also different for the period/shift of the course (gradual decrease of attendance from morning to afternoon to night). We also observed a decrease in attendance indicators over time. Attendance indicators were effective in describing the results of the Continuing Education Program and allowed the service administrators to associate the indicator results to the nursing profile. These results served as a basis for adjustments in the continuing education program of the institution.
