grand master nutricion deportiva enfermeria

Sports have become widespread throughout society, and nowadays, many people have included physical exercise in their routines. However, limited knowledge in this field has also led to an increase in the number of medical consultations, either for injuries or even for preventive purposes. In this sense, nurses have become highly qualified professionals who are able to provide nutritional advice to athletes. For this reason, TECH has decided to focus on this sector, creating this Advanced Master’s Degree in Comprehensive Sports Nutrition, which compiles the most important information for nursing professionals.

As such, a high-level teaching team, with years of experience in the sector, has compiled the most comprehensive, up-to-date information, which, in addition to offering great theoretical content, contains a wide range of practical cases that will be fundamental to consolidate knowledge more quickly and efficiently. Therefore, nurses will be able to provide athletes with nutritional guidance as part of their daily work with increased confidence.
Specifically, this program's syllabus provides a global vision of sports nutrition, while focusing on the most important and innovative aspects: Invisible training or proper diet for athletes, and nutrition before, during and after exercise. Additionally, it includes information related to professionals with different personal situations and different sports activities, specifying in each case the best dietary recommendations, with the objective that the nurse has a complete knowledge that allows them to adapt to each user during the development of their daily practice. 

In short, TECH’s aim with this program is to provide a unique opportunity that professionals in the sector cannot miss out on, as it provides the most up-to-date information and, above all, an innovative teaching methodology, with a multitude of teaching resources that allow for quality online education. This, together with the quality of the teachers, has made it a benchmark program in the field of sports nutrition for nurses. It is also essential for those who have to combine their learning with the rest of their daily obligations, since they will be able to study at any time and from anywhere, and the student will be able to self-manage their own study time. Undoubtedly, a clear plus in the panorama of postgraduate programs that currently exist.

Stand out in the nursing field by expanding your knowledge in sports nutrition" 

This Advanced Master’s Degree in Comprehensive Sports Nutrition contains the most complete and up-to-date academic program on the market. The most important features of the program include:
