Organisation profile

Our department was set in 1989 to start the baccalaureate program for nursing. At that time, it was also the first nursing department in a national university in southern Taiwan. In 1999, the master program was built and divided into five tracks, which are Adult Health Nursing, Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, Maternal-Child Nursing, Community Health Nursing and Nursing Administration. In 2003, the nursing track for PhD students was established under the Institute of Allied Health Sciences. In 2012, the International Advanced Program in Nursing (the master program for international students) and in 2017, the International Doctoral Program in Nursing were set up. Four Mottos of our department are “Empathy, Respect, Commitment and Caring” to integrate varieties of resources, knowledge, research findings and theories into clinical practice. Our department emphasizes to cultivate students’ autonomy, independence, critical ability and creativity, thus, to integrate into effective learning contexts for guiding them to think about the effects of social changes on people’s health and nursing profession and to apply the concept of holistic care into nursing field for an individual, family, group and community. It is expected that the graduates are well-prepared for the following competences: medical specialty, humanistic science, clinical nursing skills, critical thinking, ethical reasoning, evidence practice, teaching and learning, international communication, leadership and management, as well as lifelong learning. Also, they should be the nursing professionals with social care, international vision and commitment.
