This paper aims to analyse what could be the most important element in order to have nurses trained in the field of Sports Nursing-the educational offer. The paper examines general aspects of the Spanish legislation in terms of education, some of which cannot be known in detail outside the academic settings, and that allow to propose possible approach lines and improvement opportunities for the existing and future education in the subject topic of Sports and Fitness Nursing. In synthesis, a concise look at the ins and outs of nursing training in the area of fitness and sports is presented, highlighting those elements that might be used to make up for the necessary quality training in this area of nursing specialisation.
