This article describes a research to improve nutrition teaching, adapting it to the specific needs of nursing students. The data were obtained through a questionnaire filled by 30 professors. The answers were analyzed by a qualitative method, applying the content analysis technique and were assembled in six groups in which the expectation of the professors were gathered: food and nutrition security, life quality, feeding problem, nutritional care process, professional role/interdisciplinarity and specific technical contents. The conclusions point out that teaching must go beyond pure technical contents, and must prepare the students to critically analyze situations where interventions in nutrition field are required and to act in an interdisciplinary manner
