A Greeting from the Professor

The Department of Clinical Nursing engages in the exploration and education of effective nursing interventions for physiological/psychological health problems in adults. The Department of Clinical Nursing consists of two specialty areas: Adult Nursing and Psychiatric Nursing.

The Division of Adult Nursing focuses on nursing care of adults suffering from acute or chronic dysfunction. The Division is also investigating effective ways of health promotion and the prevention of chronic illnesses in all adult people.

he Division of Psychiatric Nursing focuses on effective nursing interventions for people with psychiatric diseases, and for their families as well. The maintenance and promotion of mental health of all people living in our society are also important subjects, and of particular interest is the provision of assistance to people who are facing situations of domestic violence (DV) or abuse.
