Sumario: This  article describes the results of a study on  perception that has the adultpeople about the task of nursing in the first level of attention. This study was realized in five selected EBAIS of Cartago area. The methodology applied was a non-experimental quantitative approach and a correlation transactional design that permits to know the causes  of  this social  phenomenon.  It was used the theory of Imogene King for the obtained analysis of the result.  The perceptionis an element of the personal system fundamental to obtain the necessary transactions and the profit of objectives in intervention of nurse. The obtained data allowed to mainly identify an erroneous perception of the adult people about the roll of  Nursing in the first level of attention, which had to several factors, among them: absence of professionals of  Nursing in this level, the ignorance of the profile and functions of each one of the members of the equipment of Nursing and overlaps  of functions between the members of the personnel; which does not allow to identify of clear way the functions of each one of them. Most of the adult people they have had some approach with the Nursing personnel and have favorable opinions; nevertheless, the experience is had with mystic and vocation. On the other hand, the biomedical vision of the health is evident in the expectations of the people who continue seeing Nursinglike a dependent profession of the medicine. The  inferential analysis allowed establishing a significant association between the qualification of the care and the education that offered. In general, one as much was positive answers as negative around perception of the Nursing based on the previous experiences and the contact with the people and not with the objective knowledge about the profession.
