Abstract:  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.
