    Abstract

    This study aimed to identify the factors associated with violence among students of public schools located in the central region of Rio Grande do Sul. It is an observational, transversal and analytical study. The sample was made up of 435 students aged from 10 to 19 years old. The data were collected through a structured questionnaire applied via interview. Associations between the dependent and independent variables were taken from the Poisson regression model. Once analyzed, the data evidenced greater prevalence between violence and the following variables: male sex, larger number of siblings, and a low income; while religion was associated as an indicator of protection for psychological violence. It is concluded that interdepartmental, interdisciplinary and multidimensional approaches constitute an important strategy for promoting health and reducing violence in schools, above all in communities with indicators of vulnerability. Specific strategies for the work of the nurse are indicated for preventing risks associated with violence.
