The qualification of the Graduate Nursing Program is highlighted in the sequential evaluations by the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES), encompassing the 2004 – 2006 and 2007 – 2009 periods with grades 4 and 5, respectively. It is important to remark that this program is one out of eleven Brazilian Graduate Nursing Programs that obtained grade 5 in the CAPES 2010 – 2012 evaluation, which means a “very good” grade (at this time there were 66 Graduate Nursing Programs in Brazil).

The excellence level of the scientific production of the members of the School of Nursing enabled the attribution of extra-budget funds from research agencies and Foundations, as well as the attribution of the Scholarship of Research Productivity by the CNPq to a number of professors.
