To support Japanese society in the 21st century

The title of the incorporated school, gTesshoukan (that operates the College),h dates back into the 19th century as our progenitor, Jishow Kameda, having learned modern Western medicine in Nagasaki, opened a private school to teach those who aspired to learn medicine. Ever since, our commitment to education had continued into the 21st century, by educating nurses who are well qualified and essential in health care services, while responding to changes in health care and society. In the recent years, complexity and advancement in health care services have been demanding nurses to have higher-level competencies to fulfill everexpanding roles and responsibilities. Based on our belief that college-level education is essential to fulfill those demands, we have established the Kameda College of Health Sciences with a Baccalaureate nursing program since 2012. Through four years of comprehensive and sophisticated professional nursing education in this program, we expect our graduates to play key roles in health care teams in the future. In addition, we are preparing for the opening of a graduate program in nursing to assist nurses to continue their career advancement. On the other hand, we are also eyeing on the development of wide-range of health care professionals who can meet changing demands of society today and in the future. We trust that both our comprehensive academic and clinical learning environment at Kameda will enable students to acquire wide range of competencies needed by the society with ever increasing number of people with advancing age.

Education of our students develops
the registered nurse who is prepared
for the super-aging society in Japan
and globalization in the 21st century

First, nursing roles have become more diversified, including sophisticated physicianf s assistance in acute illnesses or emergencies to the patient's overall healthcare and education for many chronic or morbid diseases.

Secondly, we are going to face an era of the super-aging society in Japan as well as in other developed countries. The medical and health care system should be changed to comprehensive management of the coexisting complexities / difficulties of the patientf s life outside hospital. In recent years, a team health care system has been adopted. Many professionals or experts, such physicians, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists, and social workers are responsible for cooperating together in managing patient care. In this regard, an attending nurse has a very important role in the patient's life as a primary health provider because of the proximity and constancy of care required by most patients.

Also, it is necessary to adapt to globalization in the 21st century. To study foreign cultures is valuable for nursing education. Our students visit nursing universities or hospitals in Singapore, Canada, The United States, and China to study foreign nursing systems. Our curriculum in the Department of Nursing at the Kameda College of Health Sciences cultivates human resources capable of comprehensive nursing and understanding the global world.
