LIMA, Thainá Oliveira  e  TAVARES, Claudia Mara de Melo. Emotional difficulties experienced by nursing students in the approach to patients. Revista Portuguesa de Enfermagem de Saúde Mental [online]. 2016, n.spe4, pp.93-99. ISSN 1647-2160.

BACKGROUND: The expression or inhibition of emotions depends on the cognitive development of the cultural context in which we operate. Therefore, the educational phenomenon cannot be understood as fragmented, but like a social practice which involves various aspects, especially emotions, which are a vital part of the entire nursing training process. OBJECTIVE: To discuss with students the emotional difficulties experienced when approaching patients. METHODS: Qualitative, descriptive study, conducted with graduation students of Escola de Enfermagem Aurora de Afonso Costa from Universidade Federal Fluminense, on Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. Data collection was carried out through focus group interview. The analysis was made from the thematic content investigation. RESULTS: To know stories of these students and make them recall situations they deemed most outstanding and that will enable them to recognize their own emotions, a step in the construction of Emotional Intelligence, which is the ability to manage emotions within ourselves and in our relationships. On several occasions, students react differently to the same events. This is of great importance, since it means that most of our actions are not triggered by external stimuli, but by personal conditions, which may be conscious or unconscious. CONCLUSION: It was possible to make difficult emotional experiences of nursing students visible, and thus propose changes and the opening of new spaces for discussion in the university environment.
