Introduction: Nursing competencies include skills, attitudes and knowledge that allow professionals to take decisions consistent with each case and situation. Specific activities are performed that require specific qualifications. Objectives: To showcase the importance of nursing professionals in family planning by measuring the impact that training has on their daily work. Methods: This study was carried out in a Family Planning Centre that supports women ranging in age from 14 to 50 years old. In this study we briefly describe the activities of nursing professionals and highlight consultations in which the attendance of a doctor was not required. The scope of the study was 47 women that requested urgent attention over a time span of 6 months. Women that had their questions solved over the phone are not included. Daily activities in a Family Planning Centre: information, different contraception methods, usage guidance, complications and secondary effects. Anamnesis: risk factors, family history, analytic study. Follow up: method control, cytologies and cultures. Education reinforcement. Results: average age 29.5; number of IUD users 16, hormonal contraceptive users 26; no method 5. The following issues were found in IUD users: prolonged periods, metrorrhagia, vaginal itching, coitalgy and staining. 44% of these cases resulted in medical attention and 56% in nurse attention. For the hormonal contraception users, the following issues were identified: unfamiliarity with signs and symptoms and vaginal itching. 77% of these cases were resolved by the nurse and 23% with a doctor. For women that were not using any contraception method, a doctor was required in two cases and a social worker in one. Conclusions: health services managers need information based on research to showcase the cost-effectiveness of these services; efficience based on experience and training of nursing personnel showed that, for most of the cases, intervention by a doctor was not required.
