The master's degree in Applied Research Methodology in Nursing Care provides the knowledge and skills required to carry out and evaluate quantitative and qualitative research projects on the areas of care, teaching and management in which nurses work.
The principle objective of the master's degree is for students to gain essential skills in planning, organizing and evaluating scientific studies on nursing care. The syllabus introduces the scientific method and covers the procedures and techniques used to obtain and analyse data and to communicate and disseminate the results and conclusions of studies. In addition, the course offers a wide range of optional subjects, such as research areas in nursing, information and communication technologies, social and health inequalities, ethics and the gender perspective in research, and evidence-based nursing practice, among others. This master's degree is intended for holders of nursing degrees and diplomas with some experience of research-related activities.

Learning objectives

The main objective of this master's degree is to respond to growing demand for postgraduate training in applied research in the field of nursing practice, relating particularly to nursing care and touching on other key aspects such as management and teaching.

The course aims to consolidate the research skills of nursing professionals and to foster a capacity to innovation, creativity and initiative in the practice and research of nursing care. At the same time, students will develop a general understanding of research as a means of professional development and advancement. The degree content is therefore designed to aid the development of a critical perspective on health needs, health policies and health institutions, at the national and international scales.
