Nursing

Master's Program

Students, who should have already completed basic education in nursing science, are required (1) to study the scientific research process, and (2) to investigate problems in the field of nursing science based on their own academic interest.

Students are also expected to perform independently, demonstrating the ability to utilize various resources, such as literature and lectures, to advance their research activity and raise their own ability in their particular specialty. Because nursing science is a practical science, it is important that students contribute to increasing the quality of nursing practice.

With that point of view in mind, this course will examine and evaluate the relationships between scientific research and nursing practice. The curriculum is thus structured into the following domains: nursing management/political science; nursing practice basics/help studies; infection management/infection prevention; nursing pedagogy; reproductive health nursing science; pediatric nursing science; adult nursing science; geriatric nursing science; psychiatric nursing science; home health care studies; and public sanitation nursing science.

Doctoral Program

The field of nursing science aims to foster researchers. A nursing science researcher should have the ability not only to study nursing science independently, but also to lead a study group. Therefore, in this course, we provide opportunities for communication with other experts from associated fields with broad knowledge, and for academic interchange among students.

Through these opportunities, we expect you to develop a nursing specialty based on a broad perspective, and to master the methodology of academic research. The curriculum is structured into the following domains: nursing policy; nursing management/development studies; nursing help study; infection management/infection prevention; reproductive health nursing science; pediatric nursing science; adult nursing science; geriatric nursing science; psychiatric nursing science; home health care studies; and community-based nursing science.
