Catholic University of Pusan

The Catholic University of Pusan is situated in the southeastern South Korean port city of Busan. The current president is Son Sam-seok. The university is traditionally focused on nursing and health sciences, but in addition to these fields it includes schools of environmental science, business administration, computer information engineering, and social welfare. It enrolls about 1,200 students.

In 1964, the Maryknoll School of Nursing opened under the directorship of Rita Catherine Bonin, attached to Maryknoll Sisters Hospital. It was reorganized as Maryknoll Nursing Junior College in 1971. It was renamed Pusan Catholic College in 1990. In 1999, it united with Jisan College (est. 1979), another Catholic nursing school in Busan, to form the present-day entity of the Catholic University of Pusan.
