Yokohama City Visiting Nurse Human Resource Development Program

Final update date April 6, 2021

◇What is the Visiting Nurse Human Resource Development Program?

Progress of Creation

The number of elderly people in Japan announced in September 2020 was 36.17 million, a record high, and the aging rate was 28.7%, a record high. The number of elderly people in Yokohama City, which has a large-scale population, is also increasing, and it is expected that the rate of increase in the elderly population will greatly exceed the whole country in the future. For this reason, the demand for home-visit nursing, which supports the comprehensive community care system in Yokohama City, is expected to increase rapidly, and human resource development and securing of home-visit nurses is an urgent issue. However, it is difficult to promote the training of visiting nurses only at home-visit nursing stations that have a lot of small-scale management, and it is necessary to work throughout the region, including hospitals and educational institutions.
Against this background, the “Yokohama City New Graduate Visiting Nurse Human Resource Development Program Development Study Group” was launched as a business in Yokohama City from 2017, and the name was changed to the “Yokohama City Visit Nurse Human Resource Development Program Development Study Group”. And proceeded for four years.
In this program, as a common visiting nurse image that Yokohama City aims for, a nursing practice ability evaluation index (Creer Development Program) is set in five stages, and achievement goals are set for the five abilities at each stage.
We hope that visiting nurses will use this career ladder to clarify their own issues and goals.
