From the Dean
Welcome to College of Nursing
Ever since it started to provide nursing education in 1907, the College of Nursing at Seoul National University, as an institution of higher learning for the Korean people, has made ceaseless efforts for the enhancement of national health and the development of nursing professionals. It established a 4-year undergraduate education system in 1959, the master’s program in 1964, and the doctoral program in 1984 and was launched as an independent college in 1992.
Our college thus far has been acknowledged for excellence in nursing education both at the national and international level, and our graduates likewise have made use of their expertise and talents in diverse fields including nursing education, research, and practice. In a swiftly changing and developing health care environment, now is the time to grasp accurately the demands of contemporary society and to leap further in response to such demands. With population aging and an increase in the importance of primary health care, the roles of nursing have expanded further as well.
Training nursing professionals who will lead the era under the goal of realizing a “Healthy future opened up by nursing” is the future direction of the College of Nursing at Seoul National University. In order to accomplish this goal, we will do our utmost to create the optimal educational environment and to train talented and caring nursing professionals of the future who, in addition to being equipped with academic excellence, will implement people-first nursing in various professional fields.
We cordially request you to take interest in and to cheer for the future of the College of Nursing at Seoul National University, which is growing together with the world as a global leader. Thank you very much.
