Objective: To evaluate the opinion of Nursing students regarding the methodology developed in the discipline of Human Anatomy, and the insertion of different didactic resources in the classes. Method: A cross-sectional study with a quantitative approach was conducted with 62 nursing students. It was observed that the majority of the students were women (90.32%). Results: Of this 92% of the students were satisfied with the teaching methodology used by the teacher in Anatomy classes, with theoretical classes followed by practical classes, associated with the use of different didactic resources. Among these resources were: textbooks, anatomical atlases, cadavers previously dissected (prosections), anatomical models, monitoring classes, and multimedia resources, such as the projection of slides produced in Microssoft® PowerPoint®, virtual atlases, videos and animations, which have passed of 84% of the students. Students highlighted prosecutions, anatomical atlases, monitoring classes and multimedia resources. Conclusion: Our findings indicated that nursing students were satisfied with the teaching methodologies used, demonstrating that it is necessary to introduce active methodologies such as problem-based learning, problem-solving and time-based learning with the purpose of improving the process of teaching and learning.
