In 1963, a 5-year junior college program was established to educate nursing professionals. Junior high school graduates were recruited. However, with the challenges and important improvements in nursing education, the School of Nursing was established in 1977 and recruited high school graduates. In 1985, male students were admitted for the first time to a nursing school in Taiwan. In the current undergraduate program, students are required to complete 140 credits (around 4 years of courses) in order to obtain a bachelor degree.


Moreover, in order to satisfy the national education policy of improving the quality of nursing profession, a pilot RN-to-BSN program was initiated in 1990 and recruited junior college graduates. An associate degree is provided when requirements are completed. Since the RN-to-BSN program was a success, it was officially established in 1994 and enrolled 50 students annually. Students are required to complete 80 credits and obtain a degree. To meet the anticipated needs of nursing professional development, a 2-year RN-to-BSN program for anesthetic nursing was established in 2005. Moreover, due to the increasing numbers of elderly people, a course on health care and management in gerontology will be developed to cope with the caring needs associated with aging-related diseases and conditions.


Furthermore, in order to advance nursing education, a master degree program was established in 1995 with three divisions including nursing administration, adult care, and community care nursing programs. In 1999, students who were registered nurses were eligible to enroll in the CON for the postgraduate program. As extensions of the CON, pediatric and mental health nursing programs were initiated in 2000. Anesthetic nursing and geriatric nursing were established in 2004. In total, there are seven nursing areas in the master program. Currently, 46 master students are enrolled in postgraduate programs each year, and they are required to complete 34 credits of course work (11 credits for required courses and 23 for elective courses) and six credits of a master thesis to fulfill the requirements of a master degree in nursing.


In order to prepare nurse researchers and educators, a doctoral program was initiated under the Graduate Institute of Medicine in 2000 and enrolls three to four students each year. A doctoral program under the Graduate Institute of Nursing is established in 2006.


Today the CON (February 2003) has about 400 students in the undergraduate program, 250 students in RN-to-BSN program, and more than 100 students in the postgraduate programs. Our undergraduate and graduate students have earned exceptional reputations in both clinical and academic fields.
