Message from a Current Student

Tomoharu Yamaguchi

When I was studying and practicing nursing for children with special needs, I learned the importance of family nursing and developed the desire to pursue it professionally. This was why I entered the University’s special nursing course for family support . Meanwhile, because I was continuing to practice as a nurse in a clinical setting I also applied to the long-term course system. Now I am striving to balance work and academics.

It has become very enjoyable to learn, because I've come to understand nursing not only through specialized subjects but also from various perspectives and have gained knowledge through the theory and research of nursing. I've also been able to have a very satisfying student life by realizing the importance of thinking about my future career as a nurse and how I should practice it.
