The study population were 492 students, with a sample of 105 university students, older than18, of both sexes and enrolled in their last semester of any of the two degrees offered in the institution: Nursing bachelor’s degree and Nursing and Obstetrics bachelor’s degree. For the recollection of data, a simple random probability sampling design was used, and a self-administered instrument of closed questions was used, which was submitted for the validation of its content by two experts. Relative and absolute frequencies were calculated. Results: The students expect to do their social service in clinical areas, earn their degree through postgraduate studies and obtain a specialization.

Objetivo: Conocer las expectativas académicas y laborales de estudiantes que cursan el último semestre de la licenciatura en enfermería, en una universidad pública de la Ciudad de México. Materiales y método: Estudio cuantitativo, descriptivo- exploratorio y transversal. La población de estudio se integró por 492 estudiantes, con una muestra de 105 universitarios, mayores de 18 años, de ambos sexos e inscritos en el último semestre de alguna de las dos carreras que se ofertan en la institución: Licenciatura en Enfermería y Licenciatura en Enfermería y Obstetricia. Para la recolección de datos se utilizó un diseño de muestreo probabilístico aleatorio simple y se elaboró un instrumento autoadministrado de preguntas cerradas, que se sometió a la validación de contenido por parte de dos expertos. Se calcularon frecuencias relativas y absolutas. Resultados: Los estudiantes esperan realizar su servicio social en áreas clínicas, titularse por medio de estudios de posgrado y realizar una especialidad. Sus expectativas profesionales se enfocan en trabajar en el sector público, en hospitales de segundo y tercer nivel de atención; igualmente, quieren ingresar al campo laboral con la categoría de enfermero especialista durante los primeros seis meses después de liberar el servicio social. Conclusiones: Las expectativas académicas y profesionales de los estudiantes se centran en el área asistencial sin considerar el primer nivel de atención, el ejercicio libre de la profesión ni las áreas de docencia, gestión e investigación.
