Results: nine selected articles from 2,075 retrieved. Main contributions of categorized nurses: Popular health education and home visits as care technologies in Nursing; Permanent education and the interface in exclusive breastfeeding; and Counseling as a supportive strategy. Conclusion: nurses, as members of multi professional teams, play a relevant role in exclusive breastfeeding, contributing to actions that transcend the biological and technical dimension, contemplating the singularity and the lived context of the woman/nursing woman, with promotion of health education activities during the puerperal pregnancy cycle.
