IBARRA MENDOZA, Teresa Ximena; NORENA PENA, Ana Lucía  and  GUILLERMO ROJAS, Juan. Visibility of nursing discipline: the media factor research. Index Enferm [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.4, pp.252-256. ISSN 1132-1296.

This article takes the premise that research contributes to the internal reflection of each discipline and justifies the advance of science. From such condition, research is contextualized in academic and practical nursing. The review continues by analyzing the contribution of graduate studies and developed research projects, which offer the possibility of improving current nursing practices. At this point, doctoral training is an option, which allows a strengthening of professional and personal development through the acquisition of skills and investigative understanding, delving deeper into disciplinary and theoretical reflection. Finally, in addition to all the above, we explain some of the major obstacles and concerns faced by nurses when they decide to investigate and/or adjust the conceptual outlook towards practical results.
