OBJECTIVE: to reflect on the body of the nursing professor in the subjectivity discourse.

METHOD: this is a reflective essay on the theoretical and practical reverberations of the nursing professor's body based on the Deleuzoguattarian discourse.

RESULTS: in the theoretical framework, the body of the nursing professor was considered as a producer of subjectivities and understood without organs, surrounded by strengths, desires, and affections. In the practical framework, we discussed pedagogical strategies developed by professors, such as dramatic games, simulated scenes, presentation of the line of care and living portfolio, characterized by stimulating nursing students to value political, civic, creative, and supportive dimensions.

CONCLUSION: based on the subjectivity discourses, the professor's body was demystified as uniquely holder of knowledge, and all participants in the educational scenario were considered active protagonists of collective knowledge.
