Environmental Health Nursing
The environment is the theme that has been taken up since the time of Nightingale, and is placed as one of the basic concept in nursing science. The environment has various influences on the health of people, but the recognition and relation for the environment have changed according to the state of mental and physical health. Conventionally, the relations between the person and the environment have been discussed in terms of determinism or the interaction theory. However, "Man-Environment System" has become widely accepted.
 In our field, we investigate the healthy phenomena in various fields scientifically from the viewpoint of "Man -Environment System" with the aim of building a new domain called the environmental health nursing.
