Objective: To know the development of the stages of implementation of the Nursing Process in a hospital. Method: Qualitative study developed by the action-research method, with data collected using a semi-structured instrument applied to 87 nursing assistants. Results: Thematic Analysis identified the following categories: Knowledge of nurses about the concept of Systematization of Nursing Assistance; Steps of the Nursing Process; Indication of the phases of the Nursing Process applied daily; Ability to apply the Nursing Diagnosis classification; Weaknesses in the application of the Nursing Process. Conclusions: The nurses indicated the aspects that weakened the application of the Nursing Process when they pointed out work overload, deficiency in the dimensioning of personnel and lack of an information system that would include the registration of the Nursing Process as factors that hindered their performance.
