Comprehensive nursing education for global health professionals
Welcome to the Faculty of Nursing！
Our primary long-term educational objective is for students to develop their sense of consideration for others while paying attention to students' rational, inquisitive minds. This sense of consideration will enable nurses to assess patients various needs with compassion. A rational, inquisitive mind will also allow future nurses to understand patients' circumstances from a holistic viewpoint and thus discern the most appropriate course of action to take. In lectures and practicum alike, students are continuously encouraged to cultivate this combination: a considerate mind with rational scientific thought.
Students are also encouraged to study at overseas universities that have established cooperative exchange relationships with JIU. Therefore, the considerate and intelligent graduates of our faculty are expected not only to offer excellent support to their patients, but also to maintain cordial, friendly communication with people in their communities?from local residents to colleagues and visitors from around the world.
