The purpose of this paper was to analyze nurses' descriptions of why they did not want to work at radiation treatment facilities and to analyze the factors related to those reasons. In August 2 3 a questionnaire survey was administered to all 677 nurses working at hospital ""A"" and the valid responses of 3 nurses were obtained. 7 ap participants gave written descriptions of why they did not want to work at radiation treatment facilities. A qualitative content analysis of the descriptions was conducted and the following four categories, ""there is no interest,"" ""anxiety and avoidance of the exposure,"" ""experience and lack of knowledge,"" and ""with respect to pregnancy"" were extracted from 7 2 subcategories. Many of the descriptions of reactions and thoughts concerning radiation were directly related to the workplace, such as the problems of occupational exposure and lack of knowledge concerning radiation. In radiation treatment reasonable radiation safety measures must be implemented in order to minimize the fear of excessive radiation exposure. Also, we suggested that the continuation of radiation education is important in order to acquire knowledge about the concepts and technology of radiation protection so that nursing practice can be helped.
