PREBILL, Gabriela Maria  e  CORREA, Adriana Katia. The worker student pursuing Licentiate and Bachelor’s degree in Nursing: journey and challenges. Rev. Diálogo Educ. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.68, pp.435-460.  Epub 11-Maio-2021. ISSN 1981-416X.

Over the last decades, Brazilian higher education has expanded regarding international and national policies. The Nursing area has also been part of this process, whose slots, especially for night classes at private Higher Education Institutions (IES), have also grown. In this context, the possibility of workers to obtain access to the IES must be considered. The study aimed to understand the trajectory of the student worker in the Bachelor and Licentiate Degree in Nursing at a public higher education institution. This was a qualitative, descriptive-exploratory study, which used semi-structured interviews as a technique for data collection and thematic content analysis for their analysis. It involved student worker graduates who entered the course between the years 2006 and 2013. The student workers interviewed were mostly nursing assistants/technicians and envisioned the possibility of reconciling work and study when entering the course. The previous trajectory in public basic education was presented as a limiting factor for the continuation of studies in higher education. The demand for the course was related to the possibility of quick insertion or permanence in the job market. Some experiences of student workers involved the lack of recognition of the right to their insertion, as a worker in the course. The participants valued the individualized trajectory, being in line with the neoliberal logic. The results obtained can support reflections on how the insertion of workers in higher education has been understood in the spaces of teacher training and institutional decision-making.
