Department of Nursing

【Principles】

1. Definition of nursing

Nursing is a practical science that focuses on responding to problems related to human health. It is an academic field which involves studying the human lifespan from birth to death in a comprehensive manner. Nursing's goal is to provide support to human beings so that they can lead as healthy as possible daily lives while adapting themselves to their life circumstances and environment.

2. Places where nursing activities are conducted

Nursing activities are not confined to hospitals, but are also undertaken in schools, among families, in workshops, face to face with individuals, and with groups and in local communities if health education is also counted as a nursing activity.

3. Goals of nursing education

This course has the goal of developing nursing practitioners who have a strong desire to provide human care and a thorough understanding of professional ethics, and who are aware of both the pride and the responsibility they carry, as nursing professionals possessing expert knowledge and skill in their field.

4. Curriculum

Students acquire basic scholastic abilities by studying general subjects (including English and other topics). Their specialized subjects include the morphology, functions, diseases, etc. of the human body and expert knowledge of nursing. To acquire nursing skills, students receive basic nursing skills training within the university, as well as clinical training to gain practical nursing skills at hospitals, health/welfare facilities and the like. Students can also conduct their own nursing research, which sometimes leads to their conducting advanced research in graduate school.

5. Contributions to society

Being situated within the context of a general university that includes a graduate division, the nursing course at our university educates nursing practitioners who are ready to meet the nursing-related healthcare needs of their community. We develop capable individuals who take the lead in nursing practice, education and research, and who contribute to advancing nursing in general. As a core university in the Hokuriku District of Japan, we strive to achieve these tasks and fill these roles, responding to the expectations placed on our university by our local community.
