About Meiho University
Meiho University has intriguing history which has brought us to where we are today. Meiho University was the first private nursing junior college in Taiwan, but the University is much more than that today. Meiho University was established in 1966 upon the approval of the Ministry of Education. The original name was Meiho Junior College of Nursing, and it was a five-year program with all students majoring in Nursing. In 1984, the two-year program was established.
