The assistance to the person with venous ulcer demands nurse’s planning, strategies, and interventions, with a holistic approach, and which produce an adequate registry. Seeking to enrich the nurse´s care performance in Primary Care, in which the researcher is inserted, the aim of this study is aimed at the nursing consultation to the person with venous ulcers attended in Primary Care, based on the theoretical framework of Horta, the guidelines for the care of nurses within the Unified Health System and the resolutions of the Federal Nursing Council. This project is in line with the line of research on nursing care in the human development process. Objectives: To design and validate a Nursing Consultation Instrument for the Person with Venous Ulcer assisted at the Basic Care level, oriented by the Theory of Basic Human Needs of Wanda Aguiar Horta. Methodology: This is a methodological study developed in three stages. Stage 1: a) The identification of the basic human needs variables for the person with venous ulcer found in the integrative review of the literature; b) The design of a research instrument containing the selected variables for each need, disposed in 3 point Likert type scales distributed by 1=never relevant; 2=sometimes relevant, 3=always relevant. State 2: a) Validation by teaching nurses at the Federal University of Espirito Santo, integrated to the subjects of Adult Healthcare, Nursing in Adult Healthcare, Curricular Internship I, and Curricular Internship II, and by assisting nurses acting at the basic healthcare in the Municipality of Vitoria; Stage 3: The realization of the data collection instrument for nursing consultation of the person with venous ulcer containing the indicators validated by the nurses from the empirical variables with relevance level ≥ 0.80. Results: 96 empirical variables distributed in three domains: Identification of the Person, Interview, and Physical Exam; with 81 psycho-biological needs, 15 psycho-social needs, and zero psycho-spiritual needs, which were validated by the group of nurses judges.
