5. Outline of proceedings
The proceeding situation of the fiscal year 2008 and the program plan of the
fiscal year 2009 were explained by the self-evaluation committee, and the
opinion of the external evaluation committee was asked.
With regard to the nursing in island, students can learn the fundamental island
nursing education by learning the characteristics in the local community.
Where is the position of the preparatory education proceeded before entering
the graduate school?
Two years before, the program that meets the need of preparatory education
was applied. It is important for the nursing field that experienced students
become an advanced nursing specialist by entering a graduate school.
Although there is an issue how to evaluate the achievement of a program, it is
necessary to clarify what skills are required and are wanted to learn through the
course of island nursing. Making a program is not an objective, but it is
necessary to clarify what kind of capabilities are required for the island nursing.
The objective for raising capabilities of nursing is defined to be able to perform
evaluations, and it will be explained at the next evaluation meeting.
The outcome we expected was attaining the activation of health, medical care
and welfare of the island. Since the capability of the student was not clarified,
as pointed out, we would like to reflect on and retouch this.
Since it is required, the systematic education is important to clarify the process
and to substantialize the education itself.
Since we are planning to propose that the program which has objective such as
developing island nursing specialist is important, we would like to construct the
program focusing on it.
