Department of Nursing

  • Itabashi Campus

A teaching environment conducive to self-directed career-oriented learning and an appreciation of different value systems

In the modern era, the old paradigm of going to hospital for treatment has been replaced by the notion of health care predicated on the needs and circumstances of the individual. Although nurses act under instruction from the doctor, their role is greater than merely assistants in the health care delivery process. Nurses are expected to be pragmatic and sympathetic, to observe, analyze and diagnose, and to exhibit advanced practical skills in a range of areas. Department of Nursing students acquire nursing skills and expertise and also learn the importance of patient engagement and sensitivity with the ultimate goal of minimizing disruption to the lives of patients and their families.


Learning to appreciate different value systems, thinking about the future

The Department of Nursing course provides a varied and stimulating combination of lectures, group activities, practical exercises, facility tours and training drills designed to encourage an autonomous and self-directed approach to learning. Small class sizes provide highly personalized tuition in areas ranging from optimized study techniques through to career planning.

Year 1 In Year 1, Department of Nursing students undertake introductory subjects together with students from other departments. The curriculum covers a broad range of topics related to nursing, including the human body, the environment and society.
