This is an integrative literature review of the use of tele-nursing in Brazil in the different areas of nursing care. In this way, we performed a survey of data in the following databases: Latin American and Caribbean Literature in Health Sciences database (LILACS) and the Coordination of Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior-CAPES).A final sample was reviewed by eight scientific articles, being revisited by inclusion criteria. The telehealth program in Brazil, initiated for a year in 2007 (figure 1), but our first result shows that the first publication involving tele-nursing in Brazil occurred in the year 2010, three years after the creation of the program that shows that a nurse comes appropriating from several areas of knowledge that the issues of reference as transformations that permeate the profession. Another result is the existence of few articles in Brazil, aimed at tele-nursing, because this search for a confection of this study, we found only sixteen articles in Brazil that involve telehealth and the use of tele-education in nursing or nursing care, contribute to a qualification of nursing assistance. We can observe that tele-nursing in Brazil was predominantly employed in primary care, this was due to the characteristics of primary care that favor the insertion of tele-nursing activities, in view of the fact that many basic health units are located far from the centers. Difficulties such as technical difficulties, such as access to the Internet, access to the Internet or the reduced number of videos or others responsible for the deployment, was pointed out as an issue main. Tele-nursing in Brazil has been a successful entrepreneur in the various areas of practice of the profession, and can be used as a permanent teaching instrument in the ward to guarantee the integrality and quality of care.
