Objective: to describe and analyze the transcendent conception of the other, in treatment of hemodialysis by the nephrology nurses in a private center in the north of Peru. Methodology: Qualitative, descriptive. Study subjects 17 nurses and 20 patients on hemodialysis to whom semi-structured interview was applied, validated by experts and pilot study; the data processed by thematic analysis under the protection of ethical principles and scientific rigor. Results: Three themes emerged: Unique vulnerable person with transcendent meaning. Person with substitute treatment connected to a machine. And Person with principles, values and history. Final Consideration: if the nurse does not strive to know in depth the time in which the sick person lives, the dynamics that go through it, the potentialities that characterize it, and the limits and injustices, sometimes serious, that afflict it. He will recognize her as the sole and center of his care.
