ABSTRACT
The subject to be human with yourself and the others in nursing emerges from the daily activities of the nursing. It involves various interlocutors, such as, the user of the service, family, living net and the members of the health team. The objective is to point out the necessity of to be human with yourself and the others in nursing to the nurses and nursing students. This essay is a result of the reflections arising in the Care and Comfort Research Group on the Nursing Graduate Program, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Some of the ideas are based on a non-systematic bibliographical study. The development of the reflections required time to recognize in practical some components of this assay. The tactical patience showed to be fundamental to conquer the necessary changes in terms of investment of to be human with yourself and the others in nursing. Patience is defined here as the capacity to invest energy and to reach success, against all the apparent adversities; to light and to live the fire of passion; to create opportunities for the distinct workers of the nursing, by observing the talents and the different ways to contribute for the healthful working environment. We conclude that to be human with yourself and the others in nursing is a continuous transformation because the talents are revealed as part of a synergistic effect which increases engagement in creative processes and results and it is capable of surprising the most ardent skeptics and to assume an enterprising attitude of this bigger issue - that to be human with yourself and the others in nursing in the accomplishment of the nursing working.
