About the Nursing Study Program, Undergraduate Program, Faculty of Health, UPN Veterans Jakarta

The Nursing Science study program was established on October 22, 2002 which was originally united under the UPNVJ Faculty of Medicine as part of the Faculty of Medicine Study Program. Considering the acceleration of the development of the Nursing Science study program, especially in the number of students as well as the Public Health Sciences, it is deemed necessary to release these study programs from the Faculty of Medicine which will then be merged into a single health study program, namely the Faculty of Health Sciences on October 5 2007. Furthermore, the Nutrition Science study program was established in September 2010 as part of the study program of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
