Welcome to the UAM Nursing Department Section!

The Nursing Department Section opened at the beginning of 2011, with the integration of teachers from the Madrid region’s nursing schools, La Paz University Hospital and the Puerta de Hierro University Hospital at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. The Nursing Department Section, assigned to the Department of Surgery, has 25 full-time teachers and several associate lecturers in the area of nursing.

Its teaching activity is centred mainly around the Nursing degree programme and in three postgraduate qualifications that are particular to the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid: Expert in New Developments in Family and Community Nursing, Expert in Nursing Research and the Master’s degree in Perinatal and Infant Care.

Along with this teaching activity, the Nursing Department Section houses research in several areas, from Nursing Care in Infancy to Pain Control, as well as the Construction of Identity and Social Representation of the Nurse and Teaching Innovations in Nursing. This research activity is possible thanks to the funding of various projects granted at national level and is carried out in collaboration with other universities and health organisations, both at home and abroad.

The Nursing Department Section also houses the UAM_FUDEN Professorship for Nursing Development.
