Basic Concept of the Curriculum
This curriculum is designed to encourage scientific and logical thinking in students, and to support them for proactive and independent learning. And through enhancement with liberal arts courses, we aim to cultivate human power as the foundation of nursing expertise.
In addition, changes in modern society (particularly rapid aging, reform of the health care system, declining birthrate, and a view to future trends), we have enhanced the courses involved in health and welfare so that we can predict the role of health and welfare expected of nursing professionals after graduation.
