The National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences (NTUNHS; Chinese: 國立臺北護理健康大學) is a public university located in Beitou, Taipei, Taiwan.
Originally founded in 1954 as Taiwan Provincial Junior College of Nursing, National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences (NTUNHS) has undergone various transformations in its history. In 1963, the college consolidated with Taipei Senior Vocational School of Medicine, and was renamed Taiwan Provincial Vocational School of Nursing and Midwifery, a five-year junior college. Reformed again from a state-run institution in 1994, the school changed its name to National Taipei College of Nursing. This title continued until August 2010, when the School was formally renamed National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences. In the past six decades, NTUNHS has cultivated excellent nursing and health care talent. In Taiwan’s education history, NTUNHS has accomplished various nursing technological and vocational innovations. Such remarkable achievements epitomize Taiwan’s nursing technological and vocational development. Since 1994, NTUNHS has established the Department of Medical & Nursing Management and the Department of Infant & Child Care. In 1999, NTUNHS started its master’s program in Nursing and Health Care Management, Long-Term care, Nursing-Midwifery, Health Allied Education, and Speech & Hearing Disorders and Sciences. Many of our programs are recognized as the pioneers in their fields. NTUNHS’s current departments and courses cover lifetime health care, thus satisfying NTUNHS’s health allied and nursing noble educational and humanitarian objectives. In 2002, NTUNHS further established the Department of Exercise & Health Science and Department of Information Management. Upon approval by the Ministry of Education in 2005, NTUNHS established a doctoral program in nursing; this was the first doctoral nursing program in the nation provided by a technological and vocational school. In 2007, the Department of Nursing began recruiting international students to its master’s program, inaugurating its English-based international nursing program at the school. In August 2010, NTUNHS was formally renamed the National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences, comprising the College of Nursing, College of Healthcare Administration and Management, College of Human Development and Health, and Center of General Education.
