ABSTRACTA prospective descriptive study was carried out, with the objective of describing the motivational status of the nursing students, in the period between January and December 2015. The universe was constituted by 94 students of the 4th year of Bachelor of Nursing from the Medical Sciences of Bayamo; from them, a sample of 50 students was selected. The result was a predominance of those who chose the first option (66 %). A 50 % chose the career because it guarantees an adequate economic level. The knowledge by the profession was what motivated them to continue in it (76 %) and 54 % thought that they would not practice the profession because of the little professional recognition that it has. Those who would study medicine if they had the opportunity prevailed (60 %). It is concluded that the students do not have motivation towards nursing, who decide to study it for the economic and labor benefits it provides.
