Learning to work in nursing research will give you access to a new vision and a new field of development in the profession”

This Postgraduate Diploma offers an immersion into the world of research, starting with the basic concepts, differentiating between basic and health research, definitions and concepts according to the different health and non-health organizations at public and private, national and international levels.

 It is also important to study its impact and importance in the world of science for its advancement. A historical review of the evolution of research and more specifically in nursing, its relationship with Epidemiology. The study of Epidemiology is important, since it is the scientific discipline that deals with the study of the spread of diseases, health problems and reasons for their occurrence. 

To know beyond the quantifiable and tangible, the reason why individuals act the way they do or when an event bursts in a way that can lead to changes in the perception of things, qualitative research enters the scene, which allows us to know the meaning of what happens to people. Qualitative research in Health Sciences is based on what people and communities feel, perceive and the meaning they give to health processes and disease, all of this as perceived by people and not from the perspective of the researcher, who must abstract their own beliefs, perspectives and predispositions. It seeks to know people in their context, getting to know what they feel in order to understand their vision of things. Therefore, the objective of qualitative research is not to measure the extent of phenomena, but the description of realities for individuals and communities, through the use of the inductive method. The object of the research being the perceptions, feelings and opinions of the subjects under study. 

Quantitative research, on the other hand, tries to determine the strength of association or correlation between variables, the generalization and objectification of the results through a sample to make inferences about the population the sample comes from. After studying the association or correlation, it aims, in turn, to make causal inferences to explain why things do or do not happen in a certain way. 

In conclusion, the importance of evidence-based practice for the profession is highlighted, so nursing care is determined by solid research results and not according to clinical or traditional predilections.
