History of the Japan Academy of Nursing Education
Purpose of Establishment
The Japan Academy of Nursing Education (JANE) started as a nursing education research institute founded by the association of full-time teachers for nursing education organized by the alumni of the training seminars for full-time teachers for nursing schools in 1952, and later commenced its exchange and research activities as the National Nursing Education Research Institute.
Subsequently, corresponding with the progress of nursing education and changes in social conditions and considering the founding principles of the National Nursing Education Research Institute, its achievements and members’ longstanding wishes, the academy organizing committee was established in 1991 with Tokiko Yoshida as a chairperson, and JANE was officially established on July 29 of the same year.
The purpose of establishment is to improve nursing education and thereby contribute to the development of nursing science. In 2014, JANE was reestablished as a general incorporated association to play a greater role as an academic organization in society.
