The Graduate School of Nursing Science is the oldest of its kind with the longest history in Japan. We take pride in a strong network of many former graduates who are employed as clinical nurse specialists, policy makers, educators, and researchers amongst others across the country. Master's courses include those in midwifery, public nursing, advanced clinical nursing (to qualify as a clinical nurse specialist), and research. Some courses can be taken over 3 years while the student is working. We also work in cooperation with St. Luke's International Hospital to foster clinical leaders as well as with JICA programs. The Graduate school of Nursing Science provides a variety of subjects and courses, and students are encouraged to proactively participate in in many active learning opportunities under the leadership of devoted faculty.

In this way, a secure academic foundation is laid. Unique features of the education we provide are that all lectures and practicums are led by highly experienced faculty with a rich clinical background, and that various faculty participate in giving students advice on their research themes, helping them plan their research trials, and teaching them the ethics underlying such research.
You can be part of this adventure contributing to advances in modern nursing if you become a student here.
