Introduction to The School



National Tainan Junior College of Nursing


The National Tainan Junior College of Nursing (NTJCN)* was founded in June, 1952. The college currently has three departments: Nursing, Cosmetic Science, and Senior Citizen Services. In addition to excellent and qualified teachers, this college offers great amenities, high-quality teaching devices, and an e-learning environment for students. Inspired by its motto, "Honesty, Charity, Diligence, and Responsibility," the college has cultivated numerous talented students who have been contributing to the society for several decades. Located in the center of the ancient capital of culture, around 700 meters away from the Tainan Railway Station, the college is easily accessible via public transport. The centrality of its location makes it convenient for students to explore the traditional art and culture the city has to offer.


*Remarks: The English name of our school has been amended as NTJCN since 2013, but because of the habit of using NTIN in previous years, the abbreviation of NTIN still continue to be used.
