Presently, as the health and medical environment are changing (e.g. the arrival of the aging society and the consciousness concerning health issues is varied), so is the advancement and specialization taking place in the field of nursing. To educate the nursing students, who can accommodate these changing circumstances, Jichi Medical University, School of Nursing, was established in April, 2002. It aims to train nursing students to engage in advanced medical treatment and community nursing by fostering high standards in abilities and ethics. Our unique educational philosophy teaches nursing students through a step-by-step approach.
To nurture nursing professionals who have good human nature and work hard in order to enhance their nursing practices throughout their professional career.
1. To nurture sensitivity, develop human understanding, and enhance
communication skills, so that students can accommodate patients' wishes
and feelings and help their autonomy.
2. To provide students with professional skills in order to address patients' health issues and take the necessary approaches to help patients with their problems.
3. To nurture professional attitudes for understanding the role of nursing in health care, medical treatment and social welfare, as well as for helping people to be healthy and happy and for working cooperatively with others in the medical profession.
4. To understand the current nursing profession and to find ways to improve nursing.
1. To make a curriculum through which students will acquire necessary basic abilities, then learn knowledge and skills to work as a nursing professional during a four-year course of education.
2. To provide students in earlier grades with opportunities to practise actual nursing jobs and be interested in learning of nursing.
3. To attach importance on education of actual nursing.
4. To adopt teaching methods to give students motivation to study by themselves instead of one-way lecturing style, and to provide students with full of training.
5. To put a variety of liberal arts subjects in the curriculum for students to enrich their general and cultural knowledge as a grown-up together with learning nursing subjects.
6. To open seminars as part of liberal arts subjects and encourage students to take one or more seminars by their choice in order to study voluntarily.
