Community-based nursing leader training courseTEAM GUNMA
Students will not only pursue their own specialties in nursing and acquire a high level of knowledge and skills, but they will also acquire leadership skills to provide seamless care among the community, home, and hospital settings by taking some subjects in this Course for Community-based Nursing Leaders in master’s degree programs. Upon graduation, students are expected to be community-based nursing leaders with “a home care mind” in response to today’s social requirements.
As it is for the credited extension program started in 2015, in addition to lecturers at Gunma University, the teaching staff includes lecturers at collaborative universities and clinical professors belonging to Gunma University Hospital. Moreover, professionals in the community, for instance, visiting nurse station managers, administrative officers, healthcare facilities managers, general practitioners, and pharmacists, will also give lectures so that students can learn about the latest development at various settings. They have chances to learn about the basics of home care, current situation of interprofessional care, problem solving in the community, and teaching methods for clinical training. Intensive weekend lectures and email supervision are available to support students to continue their studies as well as to meet their job requirements.
