Abstract: Health professionals are constantly interrelated with other people, sometimes derived from these relationships and conflicting distressing situations. The aim of this study was to determine the assertiveness of college students in nursing and physiotherapy. It is a cross-sectional study. 225 students were included. The instrument used was the Rathus Assertiveness Schedule. The results show that age is an essential element for people to be assertive; with increasing age, the indirect assertiveness increases each year in (0.04) and decreases the non-assertiveness (p=0.004). This leads to the conclusion that assertiveness as ability relational should be seen as a requirement in the formation of the professionals of nursing and physiotherapy, as properly applied enables greater and more complete realization of care and services provided, providing professional and personal recognition.
