Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nursing professionals are a key element in health systems. They provide care to individuals and the community, with the goal of restoring health or preventing diseases. They have a holistic view of patients, and this means they have a strong and continually updating body of knowledge. This Special Issue is aimed at health professionals who seek to enrich this body of knowledge through rigorous and ethical research using qualitative, quantitative and mixed methodologies. Priority will be given to scientific works that employ a mixed methodology, as it allows a more complete vision of the problem.

In this Special Issue, original articles and reviews are welcome. The research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Quality of life;
  • Health promotion;
  • The economic effect of care;
  • Health literacy;
  • Gender, ethnic and racial disparities;
  • Interventions related to education;
  • Advanced practice nursing;
  • Nursing administration;
  • Evidence-based nursing interventions;
  • Studies related to ICT and artificial intelligence;
  • High-fidelity clinical simulation;
  • The creation and validation of questionnaires.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Prof. Dr. Paula Parás-Bravo
Guest Editor
