Acquiring a nursing degree at the Red Cross College

Providing disaster relief feeling  the sense of urgency

Learning how to offer nursing and mental care at the time of disaster

The missions of the Red Cross include disaster relief activities. To provide disaster nursing activities based on the proper understanding of how disasters could affect the people’s lives and living, students learn about nursing activities and mental care required during each disaster phase. In addition, the college develops the fundamental ability required to provide international cooperation and nursing activities based on the understanding of the international medical and health support activities of the Red Cross.

Hands-on experience through the Red Cross aid staff training

The aid staff training is held by Japanese Red Cross Society Aichi Chapter once a year at our college. Doctors and nurses of the Red Cross receive practical training on how to administer aid to injured people at the time of disaster. Our students will participate in the training by acting as injured people or their family as a part of the lesson of “ Disaster Relief Activity Exercise II ”. Aichi Disaster Relief Aviation Corps, Aichi Prefectural Police and Toyota City Fire Department also participate in the training. Emergency patient transportation drill using a helicopter is conducted during the training. In a tense atmosphere, students can learn the mindset and skills required for a Red Cross aid staff.

The principles of Red Cross and the Activities of the Red Cross

Lectures and seminars where students learn about the current world status and the significance of the Red Cross

“The principles of the Red Cross” teaches the history, idea, principle and rules of the Red Cross, which are the bases of its activities. At “The Red Cross and its activities” class for freshmen, nurses who have participated in relief activities in Japan or abroad provide a special lecture. Their stories based on their experience such as relief activities in developing countries and after the Great East Japan Earthquake move the hearts of students. Various other lectures are also held for students to learn about the meaning and nursing of the Red Cross.

The World is your stage.

To take an active part in international relief activities, master English.

The programs of the Red Cross include international relief activities. The goal of this subject is to provide students who completed English I, II and III with English ability required for the specialized area as well as practical English conversation skill. To create nurses who can take an active part in international relief activities in the future, we train students to be able to speak out and offer advice in English to communicate with people from any country.
