Faculty of Nursing
This statue of Florence Nightingale in the lobby of the main building of the Faculty of Nursing is a replica of the
original standing in Waterloo Place, London. Symbolizing respect for the profession and our aspiration to excel,
it was commissioned to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the three-year nursing education program at Toho
University. Permission to create the replica was granted by the City of London to Toho University in recognition
of our endeavors to foster excellent healthcare professionals.

  Adhering to Toho University’s educational principle, “respect nature, life, and other human beings,” the Faculty of Nursing endeavors to foster nurses who are inquisitive, conscientious, compassionate, and well balanced. The Faculty also aims to develop healthcare professionals with an independent spirit who are both mentally and physically healthy and able to treat all people fairly, and who have an international perspective, think globally, and are able to contribute to the development of healthcare.
  We emphasize education to develop humanistic qualities. In addition to courses on natural sciences, our liberal arts education includes courses designed to cultivate humanity and sensitivity, such as “Outdoor Education” (three-day camping), “Cultural Studies” (calligraphy, flower arrangement, tea ceremony, theatrical performances, etc.), and “Japanese Culture” at a Zen temple.
  Liberal arts education also includes courses designed to broaden students’ views through studying languages and learning about different cultures. Students can choose a second foreign language from among seven languages, attend an intensive English program in Canada, and go to Europe for overseas study. We also offer international health and nursing courses on disaster relief, covering both the concept and practical approaches, health issues overseas, and health issues of foreigners living in Japan. Students also have opportunities to experience practicums in Thailand and Laos.
Students learn compassion through the tea ceremony, which is included in cultural studies.
