Introduction: The development of postgraduate nursing education and its transformation needs to know the educational process, awareness of modern methods of its implementation, recognition of material resources and facilities, and awareness of the role and duties of human resources. This integrative review has been conducted with the aim to identify the challenges and strategies of Master of Science in nursing education in Iran.
Methods: In this integrative review, an extensive search of databases such as Iranian Nursing Journals Index (nindex.ir), Iranian Journals Database (magiran), Scientific Information Database (SID), Iranian Research Institute for Information Science and Technology (IranDoc), the Islamic World Science Citation Database (ISC) and the Regional Information Center For Science and Technology (RICeST) was conducted from 1988 (the beginning of the first master's degree in nursing in Iran) to December 4, 2021, using Persian and English keywords related to the aim of the study.
Results: Altogether, 10 articles from 291 studies were selected. There are several challenges in postgraduate nursing education that nursing educators are looking for solutions to address them. Master nursing education in Iran is not based on goals and mission and graduates do not have a good quality of work. In Iranian universities, the role of the master of nursing in society is not clear and so far, no special review has been made in this regard. Finally, it seems that the master's degree program in nursing in Iran is being implemented without direction and considering the needs of society.
Conclusion: Developing a coherent theoretical and practical training program in accordance with the needs of the community can be considered as the first step in reforming the program of master of science in nursing education in Iran.
Keywords: Nursing, Education, Challenges, Iran.
