Description: The Instituto Superior Tecnólogico Bolivariano de Tecnología (ITB) trains learners for different academic programs. One of them is the Nursing Academic Program where the teaching of English is based on general topics. Therefore, 39 learners were taken as a sample for this research project in order to implement some tasks from a material designed by the author of this work intended to nursing students with B1 level of proficiency. This initiative was motivated by the lack of textbooks related to English for Specific Purposes (ESP) in a critical and integrated way for learners of the Nursing Academic Program. For this reason, this work was focused on the qualitative and evaluation research under the strategy of Inquiry Ethnographic and Narrative. After doing the analysis and interpretation of results through the methods and instruments of this inquiry, it was concluded that the material designed for nursing learners with B1 level of proficiency has had a significant impact on the group assigned by the authorities of Buckingham English Center and ITB. Regarding the group assigned, though the majority of learners got an Elementary level according to the diagnosis test given before the training process, during this training they could perform the tasks but with the aid of explanations given in L1 and collaborative work. Therefore, the results obtained through this group were very productive for this research project because they have let the author know firstly the real level of proficiency of nursing learners in ITB and secondly what an ESP textbook in nursing should have according to the reality found, such as tasks with more vocabulary and expressions related to the nursing field and the daily practice of the language skills in the classroom.
