This is a review article on home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) developed with the purpose to increase the current scientific knowledge and present the importance of this approach in the care to patients with hypertension in our setting. This technique has advantages over the causal measurement, as it provides more measurements, a better relationship with the target-organs injuries, it also quantifies the white-coat effect, has good reproducibility, good acceptability by the patients, assesses blood pressure without the influence from the observer and the environment of the appointment, reduces the number of visits to the doctor and promotes greater adherence to treatment. The importance of nursing practice in HBPM is associated with the education process, using teaching-learning strategies, implementing team-patient communication and encouraging patients towards performing self-care.
