Welcome to the Chiang Mai University Faculty of Nursing. Since our founding in 1959, our faculty has been built on a commitment to ensure quality nursing and develop students’ engagement and sense of responsibility for others. We continue to foster an environment that encourages our students to serve the community and society and strive to provide opportunities for students to observe the crucial and varied roles that nurses play as health professionals.

For nearly 60 years, FON CMU has maintained a consistent focus on developing resources, curricula, research, and innovative approaches to nursing education and leadership. Consequently, FON CMU has emerged as a clear voice within the academic community at the national, regional, and international levels. We are recognized as an international center in nursing education, learning and research innovation.

We offer degree programs at the baccalaureate, masters and doctoral levels. We have both a Thai-language and an international English-language program and are proud to count students from 20 countries among our 13,000 alumni. Our post-master, post-doctoral, and visiting scholar programs provide professional training opportunities for those looking to deepen their research knowledge and skills.

We are proud of our reputation of consistently producing high-quality nurses and nurse scholars who become leaders in both public and private organizations in practice, education, research, and administration. To ensure that our students are prepared to meet the evolving challenges of nursing, we are constantly reviewing our courses to ensure that we meet program objectives, while also innovating and fine-tuning teaching and learning methods to provide our students with an exceptional learning environment.

We hope that you will enjoy learning more about the significant developments of the Faculty over the past six decades and therefore also participate in celebrating these achievements with us.

The Faculty of Nursing is a vibrant institution with skilled, knowledgeable, dedicated, and caring faculty and staff who are greatly enriched by our diverse and engaged student body. We are proud of the Faculty of Nursing and its place in the education of nurses. I invite you to contact us to learn more about our programs and hope one day to welcome you to the Faculty of Nursing, Chiang Mai University.
