Edilma Marlén Suárez Castro's text on the training of nurses in Colombia makes a clear contribution to studies of governmentality at work, based on a feminist and decolonial position. This perspective leaves aside the agenderic and andro (euro) focused analyzes that have prevailed in theoretical production over the concept. In this sense, the text by Edilma Suárez builds a careful and interesting journey that clearly shows the way in which the training of nurses, in the decades of the fifties and sixties in Colombia, is aligned with the pedagogical proposals of North American nursing and with the development agendas and the Alliance for Progress, present in the country.
