Slogan:
Enriching public health nursing education and improving faculty quality with the aim of ensuring a higher level of education in the science of public health nursing based on nursing education curriculum.
I. Vision

The purpose of this corporation is "contributing to the development of public health education institutions nationwide, the enhancement of public health education, and the improvement of public health.” To fulfill this purpose, with consideration of national trends, we will work to ensure the quality of public health nurse licenses by examining the curriculum and education system of public health nurses, verifying educational results, and improving teacher qualifications and the quality of national examination questions. In addition, we will promote activities aimed at enhancing nurse education and adding a higher level of education for public health nurses.

Based on past activity results demonstrating the need for more fulfilling public health nursing education, the Instruction, Curriculum, Education System, and National Examination Committees will work with related organizations to promote the exploration and systematization of public health nursing. In particular, we will enhance systematic training based on faculty career ladders and promote detailed block activities that respond to local issues. Moreover, we will seek to respond more quickly to the issues of member schools in response to social changes due to the progress of computerization and globalization. We will strengthen information transmission from public relations and international affairs committees, and the editorial committees will publish the council magazine "Public Health Nursing Education" to promote the dissemination of information both domestically and overseas. In addition, based on new lifestyle factors in line with measures against COVID-19, we will support member schools by collecting and disseminating information on various educational methods such as distance learning and requests to related institutions and organizations.
