Department of Nursing

Page Menu

In today’s society, which is facing both a declining birth rate and an aging population, it is essential to have practitioners who support healthy lifestyles tailored to each individual’s needs.
The Department of Nursing fosters practitioners who have a deep love for humanity and a rich personality that allows them to put themselves in the position of those people who need nursing care. In addition, our practitioners will acquire knowledge and expertise in a wide range of healthcare, medical and welfare activities. Our practitioners will be able to make a positive contribution to society by supporting people (individuals, groups and communities) in their choices to lead a healthy life.
