The current College of Nursing began in 1968 with a 3-year Associate Program in Nursing, followed by the creation of the School of Nursing in 1975. Our Master's Program in Nursing began in 1991, and the College itself was formed in 1999. Our Doctoral Program in Nursing and Master's Program in Gender Studies were established in 2001. From 2007, we began integrating both the Master's Program and Doctoral Program in Nursing into the School of Nursing. In 2012, the Graduate Institute of Gender Studies was moved to the College of Humanities and Social Science. And a year later, the Master Program of Long-Term Care in Aging was funded.
