After becoming a four-year baccalaureate nursing program in 1957, the College of Nursing became a separate and independent college in 1968. In 1963, a program leading to a Masters of Science in Nursing was initiated and in 1977, the doctoral program in Nursing Science was accredited by the Ministry of Education. In 1995, the College of Nursing became the first in Korea to allow, through an RN-BSN program, non-baccalaureate nurses to obtain BSN degrees. The Graduate School of Nursing Science, which was established in 2001, offers a masters degree program and focuses on educating advanced practice nurses with professional knowledge in their clinical field.
