PORCEL-GALVEZ, Ana María; MERCADO-BEGARA, Carmen; BARRIENTOS-TRIGO, Sergio  y  GIL-GARCIA, Eugenia. Professional Nursing Student Expectations From Gender. Educ Med Super [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.4, pp.890-905. ISSN 0864-2141.

Gender roles condition social and professional expectations. These make references to beliefs, attitudes and behaviors that society assigns to men and women. Roles are integrated into all the chores of daily life and they create biases in valuations of professional practices. Nursing has received a stereotyped vision that includes at the student. In this way, we aim to bring a gender perspective to the professional motivations and expectations that describe nursing students. A primary, secondary and tertiary inspection of the literature was conducted in both national and international databases between October 2012 and February 2013. The articles were prioritized in based on the immediately impact factor and/or impact factor measured by WOK, Cuiden and Scopus. Descriptors of Health Sciences (DECS) and terms of Medical Subject Headings (MESH) were used. The total number of articles reviewed was 26, fulfilling the inclusion criteria established. They have been categorized in relationship to gender expectations associated with professionalism, specialization and labor mobility. Nursing is a career with a feminine profile and this stereotypical view may influence graduate job prospects. Therefore might be the moment to work setting strategies to break gender stereotypes.
