Abstract

Objectives: This study aimed to clarify factors related to Japanese nurses' tolerance toward Indonesian nurse trainees. Methods: We conducted a self-administered questionnaire survey from May 21, 2015 to June 13, 2015 targeting Japanese nurses in a hospital accepting Indonesian nurse trainees. Results: We received responses from 97 of the 109 participants (collection rate: 89%, valid response rate: 100%). “Length of education,” “overseas travel experience,” “number of countries traveled,” “length of stay,” and “foreign language learning experience” were significantly related to tolerance and this supported results from previous research targeting residents. Foreign language learning experience had a significantly greater influence on increasing tolerance compared to agreement with policies on introducing foreign nurses. These are important findings when considering future nurse education and smooth cooperation with foreign nurses. Conclusion: Factors related to tolerance were length of education and experience with different cultures.
