The article is based on the author’s experiences in research, teaching, consulting and evaluation of nursing programs; and froma review of literature to help contextualize current and future health issues in the region. Findings form studies about nursing education and the nursing workforce in Latin America indicate the need for substantial changes in the training of these professionals. Conclusion: No single effort to improve and modernize nursing education will be sufficient, as long as academic projects and research do not articulate with the services and the health needs of the people to promote harmonious developments relevant to the realities of health and of nursing education and practice.
