Graduate Program in Nursing (PPGE)
The Nursing Graduate Program (PPGE) is offered at Master’s and Ph.D. program, created in 1973 and 1989, respectively. Its mission is to enable nurses and other health professionals for knowledge production and scientific recycling processes, so as to enhance innovative knowledge advances and produce transformations in nursing and health care and management practices, integrating knowledge from nursing science with that of other areas. The Program focuses on current health care problems in Brazil and around the world, affecting women, children, families and communities.

At the end of the PPGE, students should be able to:

At Master’s level:

– access knowledge sources, systemize the search for knowledge and analyze scientific advances regarding the study problem to support decision making in clinical, educational and research practice.
– identify the state of the art, gaps and trends in nursing knowledge;
– delimit research problems;
– analyze the scientific method and ethical aspects of research;
– critically interpret research designs and results;
– advise undergraduate students at scientific initiation (SI) level and in course monographs, accompanied by their advisor;
– identify learning needs and contribute to the establishment of teaching programs in the area.

– plan and manage research projects in coherence with the study phenomenon.
– analyze and articulate scientific production and the impact of research in nursing and related areas as well as in society;
– demonstrate the acquisition of multiple knowledge perspectives, integrating what exists in Nursing with different knowledge areas;
– advise undergraduate students at scientific initiation (SI) level and in course monographs and accompany their advisor in student advice at Master’s level;
– demonstrate the ability to work in research groups and seek research funding.

The Program structure includes: “Theoretical and methodological bases of nursing and health care” and two axes: “Public health and human resource policies in nursing and health” and “Health-disease process of individuals, families, social groups and communities”. This structure guided the definition of a concentration area “Health care” with three research lines: “Public health and human resource policies in nursing and health”, “Health-disease process of individuals, families, social groups and communities” and “Nursing and health care in the health-disease process”.

Graduate Program in Adult Healthcare Nursing (PROESA)
The mission of PROESA is to prepare highly human resources in research at the levels of Master’s Degree (M.Sc.), Doctor’s Degree (Ph.D.) and Post-Doctorate Degree (Post-Doc) through the professional qualification of nurses and other healthcare professionals for the processes of knowledge production, continuing education and training in advanced technologies regarding the patient care. The scope of the PROESA is to integrate the knowledge of the Nursing Sciences to other areas. It is expected the profile of candidates includes purposes of advanced research, education and advanced care within the legal and ethical scope of the profession.

– To produce evidence-based knowledge, respecting related ethical issues.
– To develop behaviors and attitudes towards continuous scientific and technological care update.
– To demonstrate reflection skills and educational interventions connected to the University-level of nursing teaching.

The concentration area of PROESA is Adult Health Nursing and its core centers on the development of studies on advanced nursing care models and practices. It is structured along two thematic axes: Clinical Care and the Care Context. These axes organize four research lines directed at the study of phenomena, interventions and outcomes related to advanced care delivery to adult patients:

• Care Delivery to Adults with non-Transmissible Chronic Conditions,
• Care Delivery to Adults with Acute and Critical Conditions,
• Work dynamics in Adult Health
• Technology in Adult Health.

Graduate Program in Nursing Management (PPGEn)
The Program responds to the need to prepare researchers at Master’s and Ph.D. level; to broaden and deepen nursing and health management research; and to produce specific and innovative knowledge in this area.

The PPGEn develops four thematic cores: Management, Education, History and Legislation and Ethics and Bioethics.

Its goals are:
1. To prepare researchers and leaders qualified in Nursing and Health Management and in their interfaces with other subjects, in order to produce innovative knowledge that transforms health practices.
2. To prepare researchers to act in different scenarios, which demand the expansion and verticalization of specialized knowledge in nursing and health management, resulting in intervention matrixes and models with a social impact.
3. Exchange knowledge resulting from studies involving researchers from Brazilian and international fellow centers of excellence.

Concentration Area:
Nursing and Health Fundamentals and Practices

Research lines:
