Division of Family Health Nursing

Division of Family Health Nursing

Students learn how to support family members while learning neonatal care.
Family health nursing is defined as the nursing practice that enables families and the individuals they comprise to have a healthier life based on the assessment of the development stage, life-cycle, and mental health of each individual in the family. The Division of Family Health Nursing includes the disciplines of maternal and newborn nursing, child health nursing, and mental health nursing covering families and the individuals they comprise who need multifaceted support in terms of reproductive health, child health, and mental health. 


The aim of the education and research in the Division of Family Health Nursing is to encourage each individual in the family to overcome health problems and accomplish developmental tasks. In addition, we also support families and the individuals they comprise so that they take responsibility and develop the ability to lead a healthier life.


Courses, such as “Nursing on human development”, “Family health nursing”, and “Helping relationship in nursing care” exploit synergies among the disciplines covered by the Division of Family Health Nursing.
