School of Nursing, Chung Shan Medical University was established in 2005 with three academic programs: BSN program, and MSN program and master program of long term care. School of Nursing currently has 529 students and 16 full-time faculty members among who 14 rank as assistant professors or above (68% of our faculty own doctoral degrees). The school’s faculty includes diverse professionals with expertise in clinical practice, research, and teaching. For clinical training placements, our students can go to a number of places - including Chung Shan Medical University Hospital, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Changhua Christian Hospital, Jen-Ai Hospital at Dali, Taichung City Public Health Bureau, and Tsaotun Psychiatric Center Department of Heath. Every other year in summer, some students will be selected to Garfield Medical Center in the USA for short-term practice.

Educational Mission

All our educational goals center on the word “HEALTH.” We expect to educate our students to be healthy, practical experts in nursing, who can then care for others’ health. Our undergraduates are encouraged to explore such topics as “Healthy People,” “Health and Its Needs,” “Health and Diseases,” and “Health in the Family and the Community.” Our graduates are encouraged to study “Advanced Integral Health Care.”

School of Nursing is devoted to fulfilling the University’s motto of “Be honest, charitable, expert, and industrious.” We aim to prepare our students to be knowledgeable, skillful nursing professionals to practice at either entry-level or advanced-level in clinical practice. We promote the adoption of multiple approaches to teaching and research, including the PBL (problem-based learning) and the use of experiential learning, film analysis, group discussion, personal interview, and site visit. Our curricula place equal emphasis on theory and practice, make full use of on-line and audio-visual resources, and help cultivate the spirit of lifelong learning.
