Fostering nurses with advanced practical nursing skills and education and research capabilities, who can contribute to the health of people both at home and abroad
Constant, ongoing learning of new knowledge and theories is required in order to support people with health problems and provide high-quality nursing care to those with illnesses. It is also important to develop practical nursing skills to respond innovatively and creatively to changes in the health, medical care and welfare environments by making effective use of research results, and to contribute to the health of people both at home and abroad. In the ever-changing fields of health, medical care and welfare, demonstrating advanced practical nursing ability based on scientific evidence is a must. As a practical science that contributes to people’s desire to be healthy, nursing science also needs to create and develop new theories and methodologies. In addition, since nursing is a profession based on interpersonal relationships, it is vital for nursing professionals to cultivate ample knowledge and a sense of humanity throughout their lifetime in order to learn and grow together with those to whom they provide health care. To respond to people’s needs for health care and the academic advancement of nursing, based on the spirit of the university motto jin (benevolence), Juntendo University Graduate School of Health Care and Nursing aims to foster both nursing professionals with advanced practical abilities and educators and researchers exploring approaches to nursing methods, thereby contributing to the health of people at home and abroad. In partnership with the Graduate School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Health and Sports Science, we are providing education that enables students to explore nursing from an interdisciplinary perspective by making full use of Juntendo’s strengths as a comprehensive health university. We also support nursing professionals by offering both daytime and night time courses for working people and accepting students who take only specific courses at this school, so that they can continue to develop their careers.
