A cross-national comparative study of the actual labor situation and work satisfaction of nurse anesthetists.

About this study:
This study is being conducted in anticipation of the future introduction of nurse anesthetists (NAs) in Japan. We will examine the steps leading to the introduction of advanced practice nurses (APNs), including NAs and nurse practitioners in this country, but there is as yet little support for their introduction.
Therefore, we will report on the actual labor situation and work satisfaction of NAs around the world in a cross-national comparative study in order to prepare for the expected introduction of NAs to Japan as specialized APNs. There are 82 questions.
