Method: a descriptive, prospective and longitudinal study comprising a target group of all the tutor professors of the province, who made the sample at the same time (120).

Results: the research paper presents this problem and bases of epistemological character of its theoretical foundation. The totality of this training process stands on the quality of preparation of the tutor professors to perform this function. These tutor professors are practicing professionals who had a non-pedagogical theoretical instruction; therefore they are supported on a non-systemic and empiric teaching, in consequence, the duty is to train these professionals. Conclusions: the process of training the tutor professor in nursing studies is nonsystemic, decontextualized and lack of theoretical foundation.
