Declaration of Non-Smoking

IPNU Declaration of Non-Smoking

On September 1, 2016, Ishikawa Prefectural Nursing University officially declared the entire university campus grounds to be smoke-free, to create a campus without cigarettes and to maintain the health of its students and teaching staff.

Smoking not only harms the health of smokers themselves, but also has serious health effects on non-smokers through secondhand smoke. IPNU is an educational institution for clinical and public health nurses who look after the health of the community’s citizens, and thus aims to protect the health of all its students, to actively work to prevent the general population health harm caused by smoking and secondhand smoke, and to communicate the importance of this to the community.

We ask all students and teaching staff of this university, and any other relevant parties, for their understanding and cooperation.
