The challenge for the nursing profession in this field would you organize, structure and support a program involving the activation of educational programs for students and practicing nurses. To start our research we made an analysis on the one hand, the current curricula of different schools of nursing in the CAM, with subjects with pain content, analyzing the similarity or not between them, the treated sections, etc. all this curriculum outline compared to the IASP (International Association of Study of Pain) proposed for nursing studies and, secondly, we describe the knowledge and attitudes of both groups in nursing to pain, both professional and qualified nurses. To observe the degree of knowledge and attitudes towards pain in both groups, was introduced as a tool the NKAS-RP (Nurses' Knowledge and Attitudes Survey Regarding Pain). The working group is proposed, therefore, three general objectives: The first description of the curricula of the courses in the career of nursing content in pain, and el2 and 3 goals, define the knowledge and attitudes to pain nursing students and nurses of the CAM.
