OBJECTIVE: to identify the profile of transversal teaching/learning skills, which allows an adequate intervention of disaster nursing students. METHODS: this is research framed in the qualitative, transversal paradigm methodology, supported by inductive and exploratory reasoning. RESULTS: it was found that there is no consensus between Nursing Education Major Coordinators/Directors and disaster nursing experts regarding transversal skills considered decisive, due to the current absence of the theme in study plans and the limited personal and professional training of professors. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: the development and implementation of teaching/learning strategies that allow the development of transversal skills, favoring students' ability to meet this reality in a conscious, balanced and efficient way, is crucial.
