Kuakarun Faculty of Nursing

 

Kuakarun Faculty of Nursing, Navamindradhiraj University, formerly called Kuakarun Nursing College, was created from the merging of Vajira College of Nursing, Midwives and Health, which was established on May 20, 1954, and the Central Hospital Nursing College, which opened on May 17, 1970.   Both of these Nursing Colleges shared the same objectives for developing and training professional nurses who work within the nine Hospitals under the Medical Service Department and the Healthcare Centers of Health Department. In 1976, it was our great honor that his Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadet granted to change the name to Kuakarun Nursing College.

In 1993 the Nursing College was added as an affiliated institute under Mahidol  University, and in 2010, Kuakarun Nursing College changed its status to Kuakarun Faculty of Nursing under the Bangkok University enactment. In 2013, King Bhumipol Adulyadet granted a change from University of Bangkok Metropolis to Navamindradhiraj University.
