【Master’s Program】

The master’s program of this graduate program in nursing science develops individuals who have interdisciplinary and global perspectives, who explore nursing based on solid ethics and scientific evidence, and who have the attitude to improve as a researcher. It also develops individuals who can become nurses with specialized knowledge, skills, and practical skills that form the basis for nursing research and practice and nursing educators who support nursing education.

It is our hope that all graduate students in this program will be “future-oriented.” We also hope that they will be able to grasp nursing phenomena from an interdisciplinary perspective and acquire solid research skills that will allow them to be successful in the international community.

Join us to learn together in the Master's Program of this Graduate Program and work hard together to play a part in building the future of nursing.

【Doctoral Program】

The doctoral program of this graduate program in nursing science develops individuals who can always verify nursing practice with a research mindset. We aim to develop individuals who can become educators, researchers, and highly-specialized professionals who bridge between practice and theory, with ability to create new knowledge and develop technologies that will be necessary for the next generation.

This program offers a wide range of coursework so that students can independently complete a high-quality thesis based on nursing principles. Nursing is a highly professional academic discipline. By taking advantage of this characteristic, we provide a variety of opportunities for individual students to develop abilities in nursing practice, education, and research that they have acquired so far and to deepen their understanding of their own career path.

Join us to learn together in the Doctoral Program of this Graduate Program and work hard together to be able to contribute as a leader of the next generation of nursing.
