At the Tokyo Women’s Medical University School of Nursing, our basic principle of education is to uphold the conviction of our founder, Yayoi Yoshioka, to strive to improve the social status of women and to promote their economic independence while training people who perform sincere and compassionate medical care.
Nursing education here has a history spanning 90 years, and our educational
philosophy, based on the school’s founding philosophy, recognizes the roles
of nurses within our changing social conditions and aims to train nurse
practitioners who can independently fulfill these responsibilities. Therefore,
our hope is to graduate female leaders rich in humanity through our support
and a wide range of experience as female medical practitioners. In order
to cultivate such leaders, we provide the opportunity to take courses on
career development for the whole four years, so that students can visualize
their career path even after graduation.
This school has two different campuses where our specialized and experienced
professors engage in education and research: the Kawadacho Campus in Shinjuku
and the Daito Campus in Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture. In April 2020,
the new building will be completed to unite the Medical School and Nursing
School on the Kawadacho Campus and a new curriculum will be developed.
In the nursing training room, which has simulation devices, and the tutoring
and conference room, nursing students learn about collaborative education
with the medical school for future team-based medical care. This will nurture
caregivers who can respond to societal needs through advanced medical treatments
and cooperation with community-based healthcare.
We employ active learning for students to foster their fundamental ability to independently learn, and respect how individual students engage questions and issues; this attentive relationship allows students to overcome anything on their own. In addition, we emphasize international exchanges with Hawai’i Pacific University, Alverno College, and Ewha Womans University. Through these educational environments, we nurture a rich sense of humanity and flexible ways of thinking and strive to develop people who can contribute to society with their fundamental nursing knowledge and skills acquired through this program.
The Nursing School provides a full education program for registered nurses,
public health nurses, and school nurses, and we have numerous graduates
with high levels of nursing competence who are active in Japan and abroad.
Furthermore, graduates can advance to our jointly operated graduate school
of nursing for students who want to deepen their knowledge of this field
to be advanced practice nurses such as researchers, educators, midwifes,
or certified registered nurses.
We will continue to convey the benefits of the Nursing School and will
work to further develop education and research here based on a spirit of
sincerity and compassion. We open our doors to incoming students with the
drive to improve their own abilities and to solve problems, and we welcome
learning which broadens horizons.
