Introduction: In an Intensive Care Unit, the nursing team needs to be qualified and endowed with technical-scientific knowledge. Many assignments such as personal and material management; patient evaluation; team supervision; decision-making, leadership and continued education, are part of the routine of an intensive care nurse. Academic practice in the hospital environment happens in a reduced way, mainly because there is still a lot of fear and insecurity from the academics, as well as from the professional nurses in accompanying them. However, when the academic practice in this environment make itself available, the students have presented a significant technical-scientific evolution, collaborating decisively in the formation of the future professional nurse. An important and nice strategy for the student to enter specific sectors, such as the Intensive Care Unit, in order to internship, is the construction of Academic Leagues. Objective: To report the experience of nursing students in the Intensive Care Unit through the Academic League. Methods: This is a report of experience based on experiences during the extracurricular practice in the Intensive Care Unit provided by the Academic League of Intensive Therapy of Arapiraca. Results: Initially we realized that, although we have specific training, technical visits and laboratory practices with professionals in the field, the academic is often afraid of the critical environment, generating a feeling of impotence towards difficult patients. This often leads to thoughts about abandoning practical experience. However, with time, what is new becomes more familiar and the insecurities begin to stop being a part of the context, consequently, the construction of the professional future begins to exist. Conclusion: It is evident that the practices carried out during the shifts provided by the Academic League of Intensive Therapy, combined with the theoretical knowledge acquired at the University, provide a differentiated and more prepared student when it comes to professional experiences. Allowing the student to have a vision and experiences outside the University, as well as critical thinking to develop scientism in patient care.
