School of Nursing
The Fukuoka University School of Nursing opened its admission for students in the spring of 2007. We are committed to the confluence of research, practice and education in the field of nursing. Nursing involves a wide area providing health care to individuals, families and services to the community. This is especially important in Japan where the ratio of the elderly is rapidly increasing. Obtaining the basic nursing knowledge at our School of Nursing and the ability to use it will prove to be valuable at all times and locations, as well as in the current medical system reform program. We have the educational environment and faculty resource in achieving this goal in the new nursing school building. Our aim is to create an educational technology and simulation center dedicated to providing students, faculty and nursing practice personnel with state-of-the-art skill training. Our curriculum includes the use of dynamics teaching tools, develop, test and implement models for clinical nursing education that promote expanded learning. Specific educational programs include role playing, simulation robot models, problem based learning, small group discussion, e-learning classes which will increases the self problem-solving mentality needed for life long education. We plan to give partnerships career advancement models in nursing practice that promote linkages across all medical communities.
