About the Faculty of Health Care and Nursing

Faculty's Philosophy

Juntendo's Policy is Benevolence

jin

The Japanese character 仁 which can be read ‘Jin’ or ‘Ni’ and means benevolence or compassion, is Juntendo University’s fundamental key word behind the university’s paradigm and approaches to education.

仁 connotes thinking of the feelings of others and not being self-centered.
People can never go through life alone.
Individual development and happiness is inextricably linked to believing that "people are born to support others, live to support others and do support others."
