Introduction: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a chronic and progressive disease. Objectives: To verify the nursing behavior in patients with COPD in the literature Methodology: Integrative review of the literature in the Latin American Literature in Health Sciences (LILACS), Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE) and Scientific Electronic Library Online (SCIELO). We included studies referring to the conduct of nursing to the patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, published in national and international journals. Results and Discussion: After crossing the descriptors, 392 articles were identified in the different databases, of which 12 were repeated, 262 were rejected by the title, due to the fact that they were not performed in a hospital environment or because they were related to other disciplines. Of the remaining articles, 68 articles were rejected by reading the abstract and 44 articles were rejected by the full reading. These articles were rejected because they were not: randomized clinical trials, quasi-experimental studies, systematic reviews of the literature or meta-analysis study. In summary, 6 articles were included in the final analysis of the sample. Conclusion: It is verified that for the control of the disease it is essential to develop the patient’s capacity for self-care.
