The objective was to reflect on the environment in paediatric unity as a potential for humanization of care. Florence Nightingale’s atmosphere was addressed to this day and the environment in the perspective of the National Humanization Policy. It was found that the environmental aspects considered by Florence, a century, resurface as a focus of public health interest through the National Humanization Policy, in order to meet the demands of child and family care through a hospitable environment that meets their needs. Based on this perspective, nurses and managers need to plan the environment of the paediatric unit, building spaces for the comfort and production of subjectivities, as well as using the environment as a facilitator tool for the work process.
