Introduction: Research competencies in Nursing professors are a neuralgic dimension in university processes. In this sense, it is useful to recognize opportunities to enhance their development and overcome hindering barriers. A first step in identifying these shortcomings is to delve deeper into the phenomenon that, although it is highly studied, its approach is not always consistent with real needs.
Objective: Analyze current approaches to the development of research competencies in Nursing teachers.
Methods: Integrative review for a critical and reflective analysis of contents of documents published between 2017-2023 with a clear methodology and theoretical reference, selected in the month of November 2023. Keywords identified in DeCS and MeHS and Boolean operators were used: “research in Nursing” AND “teachers” AND “Nursing” AND “competency-based education”. The search strategy was carried out in the Index, SciELO, and Dialnet databases. The flow chart (PRISMA) was used to formulate the search strategy, 96 articles were identified and reviewed, of which 14 were useful regarding the evolution of the category. The following inclusion criteria were considered: original or review studies, available in full text, that declared the methodology applied, published in English and Spanish.
Conclusions: And elements were identified that deal with qualities of the phenomenon from the legacy and significance of research in Nursing, the conceptions of research competencies, the impact on professional training with a research focus and the culture of research and development of the professor.
