Nursing Graduate Program

EPE 480x260

The Federal University of São Paulo’s stricto sensu Graduate Course at the Paulista School of Nursing (EPE/Unifesp) traces back to 1978. Restructured in 2008, the current Nursing Graduate Program offers training at the master’s, doctoral and post-doctoral levels.

The Program aims to train masters, doctorates and post-doctorates capable of expanding, consolidating and disseminating the science of Nursing, promoting transformative practices and spreading teaching and research, besides contributing individually and collectively in social, political and ethical research issues so as to improve the population’s quality of care and health.

MISSION: To be a center of excellence in the training of researchers, leaders and professionals capable of promoting the advancement of Nursing and Health science, emphasizing a multidimensional approach to people and groups in their different manifestations.

VALUES: The Graduate Program in Nursing’s most fundamental tenet is that the human being has prerogatives and rights that must be respected, since the right to life and health is paramount to one’s self-determination. This stems from the fact that Nursing focuses on supporting health care needs from an individual and collective perspective, through the integration of knowledge bases such as the scientific, the personal/interpretative, the critical, the ethical, the aesthetic and the socio-political. Such an integration orients the production of knowledge in Nursing, contributing to an innovative and transformative professional practice.

OBJECTIVES: To train masters, doctorates and post-doctorates to be able to unify knowledge bases when it comes to research, teaching and extension in Nursing and Health Sciences; employ different philosophical-theoretical and methodological perspectives in order to build, expand, consolidate and disseminate the Sciences of Nursing and Health, contributing individually and collectively to the improvement of the population’s quality of care and health; share their ideas and participate in projects beyond institutional limits.
