Features Of Women’S Leadership And Nursing In Japanese Culture, Reiko Sakashita

Japanese society has been basically male-dominated though the ratio of women leaders has increased recently. Higher education and development of academic societies in nursing have been very successful during the last two decades and nursing is one of the most trusted professions in Japan. However, some Japanese people still think a nurse is ...

Asian / Pacific Island Nursing Journal
