Objective: To understand the perceptions of nursing teachers about care in the light of Heidegger's framework. It was used as theoretical and methodological reference Heidegger's hermeneutics. Method: To capture the meanings we used phenomenological interviews with 11 teachers. The data analysis is based on heideggerian hermeneutic. Results: The way to be a nurse determines their way of life to the care that reflects the construction of experiences in the nursing worldliness. The existence of the nurse for nursing care is evidenced in care relations established between being careful and being caregiver, deciding the mode of being-there of the nurse who has before him and on the other the possibilities of care. Conclusion: It is being in the world that the being-nurse is manifested in their subjectivity in care for sensitive, is the objectivity of scientific care, and is in the interrelationship with being careful is that manifests the being of choices and existing decisions in his way of being.
