Division of Community Health Nursing

In order for individuals and their families to have a healthy life, the community in which they live must also be healthy. Education and research in the Division of Community Health Nursing focus on community health and its contribution to individual and family health. The Division of Community Health Nursing includes the  disciplines of geriatric nursing, home care nursing, community health nursing, and public health nursing.


The Division of Community Health Nursing aims to enable students to maintain the health of the community, extending consideration to individuals and their families, in imaginative ways  based on professional knowledge, attitudes, skills, and nursing experience. A community consists of individuals and their families whose backgrounds differ in terms of health conditions, socioeconomic statuses, and culture. The health problem they have today might be preventable, but they certainly have abilities to enrich their lives in the ways they want. The members of the Division of Community Health Nursing seek to understand the lives of individuals and families in the community, encourage them to lead healthier lives in the community, and develop a healthier community together with members of the community.
