Held in a Hospital in Timon-MA, developed in the discipline of Supervised Curricular Internship II, by nursing students, in the period between August and December 2018. Experience report: The practice of nursing internship requires a sensitive view from students and professionals that accompany them.

The same had been admitted from another hospital in the region for the treatment of diabetic foot, injury to the Right Lower Limb (MID) with a clean and dry occlusive dressing. Final considerations: The nursing activities described in this experience report are not restricted to the mentioned patient, but to all patients with diabetic foot who need assistance to treat the disease and its complications, and need individualized follow-up and care. quality.
