Introduction: Innovation in education should be done from the context and the factors that interfere in the construction and understanding of the curriculum. In the scope of nursing, teaching has undergone great changes in educational activities due to the demands of the capitalist world. Objective: To analyze the curriculum advances, which are announced as innovative educational projects aiming vocational training in nursing in Brazil. Methods: This is a systematic review of literature on curricular innovations and training of nursing students. The bibliographic survey was performed in the databases of Lilacs and Medline/PubMed using the following keywords: higher education, degree programs in Nursing and curriculum. Results: We found seven articles that addressed on the profile and training of professional nurses and curriculum changes in the undergraduate course. It became evident that the curricular changes of course still happen gradually, and reflect political moments which often doesn’t being in line with the current health model conjecture. Conclusion: Despite the curricular changes in nursing that happened due to socio-political movements, have not yet produced changes in teaching that are sufficiently in line with the requirements of the job market and are able to prepare focused professionals in humanized and contextualized care and involved in the transformation of reality.
