Methods: A descriptive study of qualitative approach, conducted through semi-structured interviews with seven nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The data collection was conducted from August to October 2015. For data analysis, content analysis was used.
Results: The identified units of meaning were grouped into three categories: nursing care for newborns affected by respiratory distress syndrome; primary care and procedures performed by nursing to the newborn affected by respiratory distress syndrome; difficulties of nursing for the care of that patient.
Conclusion: It is concluded that the overload of activities, the reduced number of staff, lack of materials, equipment and the need for professional development are the nurseÂ´s work reality in this sector. It was noticed a strong and responsible staff with apparent problems, but it was trying to elucidate their work and allowing to pull them away from work overload and structural difficulties in the area.
