The Nursing College has three undergraduate departments, two graduate schools, one cross-subject accredited program, one clinical competence center, and one health promotion research center. The three departments consist of the Nursing Department, the Respiratory Care Department, and the Geriatric Care and Management Department. The two graduate schools located in Chiayi and Linko campuses recruit degree-holding nurses who are working in the field. The cross-subject accredited program is designed to cultivate professionals specializing in both cosmetic science and Chinese medicine.
The nursing college is committed to the school motto "Diligence, Thrift, and Honesty". It honors humaneness and truthfulness. It strives to work cooperatively with industry and to stay current with the developments and innovations in the field of medical care. The curricula and teaching plans of the college are designed for the purpose of building healthy lifestyles, effective learning attitudes, and critical thinking in students in order to help them become nursing professionals who not only posses a high level of professional knowledge, but also provide truly compassionate care to patients.
The Nursing College began as a department to develop nursing professionals knowledgeable in the areas of both acute and chronic diseases. However, as the ageing population in Taiwan began to increase, the Department of Geriatric Care and Management was founded to cultivate professionals with senior-care and senior-care management expertise. Its goal is to bolster the medical system serving the growing number of elderly patients in Taiwan. In 2008, the graduate school was established in Chia-yi, recruiting in-service nurses for higher education in clinical and community nursing. Many of the graduates of the program put their education to work, serving communities throughout the Chia-yi area area and vicinites.
Each faculty member of the Chinese Medicine Cosmetic Science Program either possesses a Ph.D. in Chinese medicine or is a professor in the Department of Cosmetic Science.
