Faculty of Nursing

We aim to train nurses who play a central role in team medical care

The one which is wished for in Japan where an aging society has developed, is the nurse who can support a community or medical center as a member of a team.
Because nurses take care of disabled persons and their family members, a person aiming to become a nurse is expected to have high quality medical knowledge, professional skills, wide sense of culture, and a deep understanding of humans.
Our substantial learning environment at Shubun University is prepared, and includes original curriculum which embodies the philosophy of our university, that is "We learn with people and we learn from people."
To support this philosophy, we have employed clinically experienced teachers who have contributed to nurse training over a long period of time.

Admission Policy

Based on our school philosophy, the mission of this faculty is to impart the knowledge and practice required to become a trained nurse or public health nurse.
Students who have a high degree of professional and universal knowledge and are enthusiastic about contributing to health recovery, health promotion, and disease prevention in the community by respecting ethics and human nature are accepted into this faculty.
To support the healthy, vibrant, and fruitful lives of people living in a time of the declining birthrate and aging society, the nursing education system will convene along with the Department of Health and Nutrition. We aim to develop nursing students' leadership capabilities based on the scientific knowledge of nutrition.
In line with the above objective, we request that all those who wish to enroll in the university have the following personal characteristics: an interest in the job (as a nurse or a public health nurse), the desire for learning the concepts provided in the course by the university, and the basic academic skills needed for the learning process.
