Aiming to become a nurse
at Iryo Sosei University
Six Features of
the Faculty of Nursing
Acquiring practical skills while linking individual fields of nursing
The human mind and body change as they grow. Students at ISU learn nursing, taking into account the human life cycle, while being conscious of the linkage between individual fields of nursing. Students can acquire integrated practical skills that will be useful in actual medical settings after graduation by learning nursing while linking its individual fields.
A variety of
liberal arts courses
One of the charms of our university is that students can learn a variety of liberal arts as well as nursing. Students acquire knowledge of ethics and psychology, aiming to become a nurse (a public health nurse) who can be considerate of others’ feelings. In specialized courses, they can also receive classes given by instructors from the Faculty of Pharmacy and the Faculty of Psychology from perspectives other than those of nurses.
ISU is located in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture, which was hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake and was significantly affected by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Accident. In consideration of these regional characteristics, the Faculty of Nursing offers classes related to disaster nursing and radiation.
Acquiring a wide range of knowledge helpful in medical settings
Instructors with vast experience in clinical practice and nursing education and with overseas nursing experience and research achievements undertake the guidance of students. Students can gain a broad insight, which can be applied in medical settings, by acquiring the knowledge and experience accumulated by these instructors.
Practical exercises tailored to
Many exercise programs are provided to cultivate nurses (public health nurses) who can be immediately effective in medical settings. In particular, up-to-date facilities and equipment are provided to enable students to learn medical assistant skills necessary for nurses (public health nurses) in a situation in line with actual medical settings. Students can acquire solid and practically applicable skills.
Fulfilling relationship with local hospitals for clinical practice
Having sent more than 12,000 graduates mainly to local companies, ISU has a strong link with the local community and is further expected to contribute to society through the development of medical human resources. We have built a cooperative relationship with various medical institutions, including hospitals, nursing-care facilities, public health centers, and community general support centers, as clinical practice sites to cultivate nurses (public health nurses) who can play an active role in the local community.
