Establishment of the Division of Nursing

As scientific technologies advance, the field of medicine also becomes more sophisticated and innovative. This has led to the introduction of various cutting-edge medical technologies and techniques for treating patients, which facilitates higher recovery rates, increased quality of life and other breakthroughs. Additionally, as birthrates decline and the aging of society continues, medical care systems are undergoing major advances and changes. In response, the field of medicine itself is expanding beyond the bounds of diagnosis and treatment alone to incorporate preventive medicine, health promotion and other such approaches.

Here at Teikyo University, we have established the Division of Nursing—in addition to the Division of Radiological Sciences—at the Graduate School of Health Sciences on the Fukuoka campus as part of measures to adapt to changes in medicine.

The Division of Radiological Sciences strives to train highly specialized professionals possessing the flexibility and practical knowledge and abilities necessary to handle increasingly sophisticated and diverse techniques and approaches. Furthermore, we also aim to cultivate educators and researchers equipped with outstanding creativity and advanced research and development skills.

Similarly, the Division of Nursing aims to foster highly specialized, core nursing-care personnel capable of responding to ongoing changes in medical frameworks by collaborating with and coordinating the activities of other professionals in the areas of health, medicine and welfare, and thus contributing to the building of comprehensive local and regional care systems. To these ends, we equip nursing students with fundamental knowledge and train them to be researchers capable of scientific analysis of phenomena in the field of nursing care.

Cultivating human resources capable of providing advanced medical care and health-promotion support

As scientific technologies in medicine and other fields continue to advance, new leading-edge medical approaches are being introduced in clinical environments, where they boost recovery rates, contribute to improved quality of life and facilitate other such improvements. As a result, medical workers are now expected to possess advanced capabilities and wide-reaching knowledge in specialized medical care that are suitable for increasingly sophisticated workplace operations. Here at Teikyo University, we respond to the demands of society by cultivating human resources capable of serving in the twenty-first century medical field and making contributions in regional and local medicine.

Education in the health sciences revolves around the pursuit of improved health; the recovery, maintenance and improvement of health for both individuals and groups; and the prevention of disabilities as well as comprehensive support for persons with disabilities. As follows, the field of health sciences as a whole plays an important role, providing support for healthy lifestyles and facilitating respect for human dignity in the lives of all people. In the field of radiological sciences in particular has seen significant changes in recent years thanks to rapid advances in IT, computer science and other such fields. As follows, advanced education, knowledge and skills are required of workers in clinical settings, and personnel are expected to develop sophisticated capabilities and wide-reaching knowledge in the field.

The Division of Radiological Sciences endeavors to meet society's needs in these areas by adapting to changes in the field while fostering highly specialized professionals—including instructors and researchers—with richly humanistic qualities and abundant knowledge who are able to contribute toward the health and happiness of others.

Division of Nursing

Contemporary Japan is undergoing major transformations in its quest to cultivate comprehensive local and regional medical care systems, aimed at transitioning from medicine that focuses primarily on treating illnesses and injuries to medicine that provides all-encompassing support centered on the lifestyles of patients and their families, expanding beyond a focus on physical treatment and support alone. Moreover, this new approach aims to transcend mere healing of illnesses and injuries, striving to also preserve and improve quality of life for patients who must live with their diseases and other health issues.

In order to guarantee respect for people's dignity along with lifestyles rooted in familiar, local communities, it is necessary to effectively implement care cycles during transitions from healthy states to periods of medical care and recuperation, and vice versa. To achieve this, specialized nursing-care knowledge and skills, centering on support during times of post-treatment recovery, are required.

The Division of Nursing fosters core nursing-care personnel capable of collaborating with and coordinating the activities of other professionals in the areas of health, medicine and welfare, and thus contributing to the building of comprehensive local and regional care systems.
