School History

In 1995, a satellite campus of Naresuan University was founded in the province of Phayao under the cabinet’s approval, known officially as the “Phayao IT Campus” since October 8, 1996. Established in 2003, the Academic School of Health Sciences at the IT campus originally comprised of 2 academic sections – nursing and pharmaceutical sciences. The academic school began to enroll students in the academic year 2003.

The Academic School of Health Sciences at the IT Campus was dissolved in 2005 at the founding of the School of Nursing and School of Pharmacy.

Following a proposal to the Thai Nursing Council, the School of Nursing was restructured into the Institute of Nursing and Obstetric Studies on September 15, 2006. Soon after Naresuan University Council renamed the campus to “Naresuan University – Phayao”, the college gained autonomy as the “University of Phayao” under the 2010 Phayao University Act, declared on the Royal Gazette on July 16, 2010 and has been in effect since July 17, 2010. The School of Nursing has since maintained a status equivalent to that of an academic faculty.


The school of nursing perceives the academic discipline as a training of highly-qualified graduates and practitioners who excel in their academic achievements and production of world class research. They are to maintain high moral and ethical conducts, disseminating a decent value in life as role models for a better society. They are also to act as keen guardians of the natural resources, environment, cultures and traditions of our nation.
