Student Study Abroad Opportunities
Short-Term Study Abroad Programs
We offer study abroad programs to help broaden students’ perspectives. Under the guidance of accompanying instructors, our students can visit Thailand, South Korea, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, and the United States to experience life and nursing in the local community, interact with people of various ages, and learn about different lifestyles and ways of thinking.

This is an ongoing exchange program with Chiang Mai University’s Faculty of Nursing, with which we have an academic exchange agreement. The program lasts about 10 days, during which students learn about nursing, medical care, and nursing education in Thailand, in addition to differences in traditions and culture through lectures, training, facility tours, and site visits. Students also experience life in Thailand outside of class by spending time with the Thai students.
