Message from President
Gifu College of Nursing was founded in 2000 with a view to the contribution to enhancing the quality of
nursing service to ensure the general welfare in Gifu Prefecture. The college established the master's course in 2004 and the doctoral course in 2006, as well as its transition to an independent administrative agency in 2010, has continuously assumed the designation of a higher educational institute of nursing in Gifu Prefecture and has also provided the learning environment that enhances the competence of problem solving in nursing practice.
The nature of nursing science lies in establishing the theoretical methodology and scientific basis for the
work of a public health nurse, a midwife, and a nurse; leading a research activity to ensure the healthy life of each person, and raising the quality of nursing science.
As recent needs of people involved in caring has been diverse, the nursing profession has not only to master accurate technique and knowledge, but to understand the various aspects of human care and ethical judgment.
In an undergraduate course, basics of nursing science are provided for preparing for the national examination.
As the nursing science requires continuous lifelong study, we have established a unique curriculum that
provides liberal arts at higher grade years, and nursing research based on practicum. In postgraduate course, we aim to develop human resources who are able to see through the nature of nursing service for people who live in day-to-day life, to grapple with improvement of nursing practice from a professional perspective, and to realize the high quality nursing service in general.
Gifu College of Nursing has devoted to the wide range of nursing association and the improvement of nursing practice being based on the result of collaborative study with nurses in Gifu Prefecture. We are now, through these educational and research activities, to provide a variety of opportunities for lifelong study for nurses in Gifu Prefecture.
