Social Innovation by Nurses

Features of The Nippon Foundation Home-care Nursing Centers  

This eight-month curriculum of the entrepreneurship training program has been allowing the nurses of a home-care nursing center to gain the knowledge, skills, and expertise from the active researchers and experts on the frontline. For the need of a well networked environment, the Sasakawa Foundation fabricates a study group and meeting for the nurses to share their ideas and opinions. Currently, the focal point of our discussion is how to scaffold the cooperative structure as a disaster response.

More than 100 centers are active in Japan

92 nurses have started operating a home-care nursing center throughout Japan after the completion of the eight-month curriculum. As of today (March, 2022), 116 centers are active among the 27 prefectures in Japan.
