The overall goal of this study is to historicize the historical constituents that guided the actions and influences of American nurses, who came to Brazil in the period from 1942 to 1961 and joined the “Program (Division) of Nursing” of the Special Service of Public Health. For this presentation, the focus is Ella Hasenjaeger, an American nurse that was assigned to the University of São Paulo, Nursing School, to work as a nursing advisor from 1944 to 1951. The sources were the reports drawn up by the nurse and articles about her published in the “Bulletin of the SESP”. The questions that guided this research were: what is the intent of the presence of these women, their contributions to the professionalization of nursing and how they conducted themselves as agents of their time in the period that they were operating in Brazil? The analysis consisted of displaying the enunciations that reveal consequences of their actions, intentions and the power exercised by them. The study is based on the theoretical framework of Foucault. In this respect, understand and analyze the performance of these women has the intention to better understand their contributions for the development of nursing as an occupation in Brazil.
