School of Nursing - Nursing SciencePediatric Nursing




The objectives of pediatric nursing are to respect the rights of children, create a good environment for children to grow healthy, and help them improve their quality of life. We cover broad developmental stages from infancy to adolescence, aiming to understand children from physical, psychological and social aspects. Together with their families, we provide appropriate support for children.
In the field of pediatric nursing, students aim to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to provide the best care options for children. In the second year, students learn about the characteristics and surroundings of each developmental stage, and also about children with illnesses/disabilities and their families. In the third year, students learn how to appropriately assess children with illnesses/disabilities and their families through practicum training at the hospital. The teaching staff encourage student autonomy and cultivate students' understanding of pediatric nursing.
Our main themes of research are studies on supporting children with chronic illnesses/disabilities and their families in primary care and on prevention of child abuse. Aiming to contribute to the community, we work on improving both education and research whole-heartedly.
