The purpose of nursing is to maintain, enhance, and regain health for human beings. Nursing also helps provide essential conditions for people to live better lives. In order to realize it, we need to fully understand the target population for nursing and the environment, which may affect human health. We also need to learn the basic mechanism of the diseases that nursing professionals deal with. In addition, in-depth understanding of nursing, including health science and midwifery, is essential for research and clinical practice in the future.

Therefore students in this major study not only nursing-related subjects but also other subjects pertaining to human resource management, social science, natural science, foreign languages, health science, and medical science.

The main educational focus is to study nursing scientifically in order to develop professionals who can flexibly respond to social and environmental changes and to develop those with self-development skills who are capable of continuously creating something new in the future.

After successfully completing our curriculum, the graduates are expected to have the potential to become clinical leaders using their nursing expertise and working for various medical institutions and health-related government institutions and corporate divisions. The graduates may also choose to take post-graduate courses and conduct further research in nursing to become nursing educators and scholars.
