Therefore, to cope with the aging trend and social development demands, the department aims to train professionals in providing health care to elderly people by developing innovative nursing technology and healthcare models; incorporating professional knowledge and abilities as well as critical thinking into gerontological health care; practicing caring attitudes, including ethical considerations; demonstrating communicative and cooperative abilities; performing follow-up examinations in providing health care to elderly people; establishing a professional identity; and instilling the virtues of responsibility and willingness to engage in lifelong learning.
