Hello Javier,
yes, it is possible but not directly through the GeoNode interface

If you are using the latest GeoServer version available (2.13.x) along with
GeoNode, you can add manually GeoFence [1] [2] rules, either for specific
Users or Groups, by which you can either:

1- limit the allowed area on a Layer
2- add an embedded CQL filter on a Layer
3- decide which attributes should be hidden or shown to the users and,
eventually, which ones must also be read-only or write attributes
