FERREIRA, Márcia de Assunção. The classical and the emerging: challenges in the production, dissemination and use of Nursing knowledge. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2013, vol.66, n.spe, pp.45-50. ISSN 0034-7167.

This is a reflection about the paradigms of science and the contemporary challenges deriving from knowledge production, dissemination and use. The challenges are addressed with regard to research on nursing care, resources and political strategies in the area to overcome them. The arguments rest on nursing as a practical discipline and on the triad teaching-care-research, focused on users' demands, with a view to the promotion of health and wellbeing, within a care paradigm. Articulating the science models, expanding human, material and financial resources, investing in professional master's programs, in the expansion of academic graduate programs and in the formation of cooperation networks are some of the challenges and strategies indicated for the area to face the struggles in the hegemonic area of health, science and technology, so as to continue in the system.
