Health sciences are undergoing constant evolution. This is made possible by technological advances, continuous training-updates for professionals and their research proclivities, all of which come together to produce the pillars on which on-going progress in health sciences is sustained.

The master's degree in Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive-Care Nursing aims at being a tool with which nursing professionals can continue to broaden the development of their professional skills so as to attain the level of specialisation that ensures the ability to provide a professional response in the ways that society trusts them to.

To help attain these objectives, this master's degree requires the commitment and involvement of nursing professionals from pediatric and neonatal intensive-healthcare units. These are the professionals that, through on-going training and the professional praxis that they develop daily have attained the level of necessary specialisation that allows them to respond to the academic needs of the profession.
