Clinical care domain


Areas in the clinical care domain

  • Basic nursing area
  • Chronic clinical nursing area
  • Psychiatric nursing area (with CNS course)
  • Cancer nursing area (with CNS course)

Basic nursing area

Research in the basic nursing area focuses on the essential aspects of nursing. Based on their past learning and clinical practice, students have the opportunity to rethink nursing from a wide range of perspectives. Through their studies in Theoretical Issues in Nursing Fundamentals, Methodological Issues in Nursing Fundamentals, and Seminar in Nursing Fundamentals, students use literature searches and discussions to deepen their insights into the philosophy of nursing, nursing ethics, EBN-based nursing practice, scientific thinking, and nursing policy.

Chronic clinical nursing area

  1. This area focuses on a multifaceted understanding of the health issues faced by people suffering from chronic, long-term conditions (lifestyle-related diseases, cancer, long-term convalescence and care, rehabilitation etc.) and their families.
  2. Students explore the theory and concepts for maintaining and regulating optimum well-being, and the methodologies for research in these fields. We emphasize evidenced-based practice and research on nursing practice development.

Psychiatric nursing area

The psychiatric nursing area offers both a master's thesis course and a CNS course. Education places particular emphasis on the training of CNS (Certified Nurse Specialists), and features a quality faculty and close coordination with the clinical environment to provide lectures on the basic theory of psychiatric nursing and intervention theory, as well as practice and internships to polish practical skills.

Research focuses on the issues encountered in practical psychiatric nursing.

In addition to standard curriculum, there are regular meetings to review case studies, and this encourages networking among students after graduation.

Cancer nursing area

This area provides training in advanced practice, education, consultation, coordination, ethical coordination research, focusing particularly on:
