Objective Evaluate the educational environment of the School of Nursing at the University of São Paulo from the student perspective. Method Quantitative approach with exploratory design. The 176 students who participated in the study answered questions ona Likert scale from 1 to 5 to evaluate the educational environment. The data underwent an exploratory factor analysis and inferential statistical tests, while the reliability of the instrument was verified by Cronbach’s Alpha. Results The dimensionality analysis established four factors: support for hands-on learning, with a mean score of 3.64; attitudes during learning, mean score of 2.92; learning atmosphere, mean 3.58; and learning weaknesses,mean 3.04. Conclusion The most favorable factor of the environment was support for learning. The attitudinal competencies received lower scores, suggesting the need to strengthen these aspects during the undergraduate course.
