The customer service of people with venous ulcers requires appropriately trained professionals with knowledge, skills and attitudes compatible with quality care. It is known that professionals don’t always have qualified to serve this population. For the educational activity planning and training of human resources it is necessary to have as a starting point the competencies expected of professionals. There aren’t documents in which are established competencies for nurses in the care of people with venous ulcers. The objective is to map the skills necessary to professional nursing care for people with venous ulcers. This is an integrative review that comes through the five stages second methodological framework adopted. The search was performed using the databases: Source of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health (PUBMED), and SciVerse Scopus, and guidelines published by organizations with internationally recognized experts in area of assessment and treatment of wounds. For definition of competence adopted the inductive and deductive method. 20 articles and 21 guidelines were included, totaling 41 references. Were identified six general competencies: assessment of people with venous ulcers, venous ulcer assessment, the individual treatment with venous ulcers, treatment of venous ulcers, the person monitoring with venous ulcers, prevention of venous ulcers. For each general competency were identified specific skills and their knowledge, skills and attitudes. CONCLUSION: The identified skills represent a boundary for the teaching of the nursing care of people with venous ulcers. Should be the subject of discussion and reflection among educators, for a decision wherein levels they’ll be addressed in the process of training of human resources.
