Japanese Nursing Association to dispatch volunteer nurses

  • Comment

The Japanese Nursing Association has said it will begin dispatching volunteer nurses and supplies by bus to the areas of the country affected by the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March this week.

JNA president Setsuko Hisatsune said: “As an organisation for the nursing profession, JNA is making [every] effort to support people in the devastated area.”

The Royal College of Nursing and the American Nurses Association have both sent messages of support to the JNA.

Ms Hisatsune said: “I’d like to express our appreciation to the international community worrying about us. I also sincerely appreciate those who gave us a supportive and encouraging message.”
