Nursing science is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the research, development, and application of knowledge in the realm of health and nursing care. Key aspects include:

  1. Nursing Research: Investigation into health conditions, nursing phenomena, nursing interventions, ethics, and cultural aspects in nursing.
  2. Nursing Practice: Application of evidence-based nursing practices for the treatment and prevention of care needs, and to promote the health and well-being of patients.
  3. Nursing Management: Management of healthcare and nursing facilities, including resource organization, efficiency analysis, design of nursing systems, implementation of quality standards, and development of guidelines.
  4. Nursing Education: Teaching based on nursing didactic principles, as well as the development of curricula and educational programs for initial and ongoing nursing education.
  5. Nursing Policy: Regulation, financing, and improvement of the nursing sector. The goal is to shape standards, working conditions, quality norms, and access to nursing care, ensuring that nursing meets the needs of the population.
  6. Ethics in Nursing: Addressing ethical issues in nursing practice.
  7. Public Health in Nursing: Research on the prevention of care needs, health promotion, and improvement of quality of life.

Nursing science aims for a comprehensive view of nursing that integrates research, practice, education, ethics, and management. This integration strengthens and advances nursing as an integral component of healthcare.
