This study describes the relationship between nursing doctoral dissertations and research lines defined by the Brazilian Nursing field in three areas:  professional, care and organizational.  It isa  descriptive-exploratory research, based on reports of Graduate Programs  evaluated by Capes and on The Informative Guide of Nursing Research and  Researchers CEPEn/ABEn,  from 1983 to 2001, totalling 448 abstracts. The care field includes the greatest production, followed by the organizational  and professional areas. The studies disclose tendency  towards the qualitative approach revealing possibilities for a more profound knowledge about reality or a more through understanding of social phenomena   related to nursing practice.
