School of Nursing

The School of Nursing was established in 1998 with the aim to develop professional nurses who can play an active role in diverse medical settings. Today, professional nurses are expected not only to assist doctors but also to help improve the quality of life of patients and to exercise leadership in the prevention of diseases and the after-care of patients. The Graduate School of Nursing was established in 2002 with the aim to produce nurses who have highly specialized nursing skills.
