University of Navarra
Amparo Zaragoza received her doctorate in nursing from the University of Glasgow (2004), focusing on how greater autonomy needs to be afforded to nurses who are primarily responsible for developing individual plans of care for each of their patients. Her research focused on how the changing dimensions of care (and the institutions providing it) will affect patients as well as the nursing profession. She has professional nursing experience in intensive care and medical-surgical nursing. Currently she is Professor of Nursing Philosophy at the University of Navarra and serves as the Director of Academic Affairs for that department.
