Introduction: Academic leagues are created with the proposal of expanding the studies on certain fields as an educational tool.

Methodology: Exploratory and descriptive study of the type experience report of nursing student participating in the League of Urgency and Emergency in Nursing called “LUREEN”, within the scope of the Federal University of Uberlandia (UFU). Results: Nursing students have taught by two professors. One of them has multiprofessional degree (nurse, physician and dental surgeon, besides master degree) and other is PhD in Nursing. A total of 20 students make up league team, most female (n=14; 70%) with a mean age of 23.80±4.10 years and attending the 6th period of nursing course (n=6; 30%). The main activities performed were: Classes and realistic clinical simulations through educational methodologies as Team-Based Learning (TBL), Problem Based Learning (PBL) and Case‐based learning (CBL); Health Continuous Education; Extra hospital activities and Coverage of cultural and sportive events by league. Final Considerations: The outcomes presented in that experience report show a great way to improve and increasing learning of nursing students in undergraduate trough an academic league as well as one of the best methodologies to provide real training in urgency and emergency situations. It is expected that future studies approach similar issues to improve nurse education courses.
