In order to examine the growing roles of clinical practice for nurses, this study aimed to elucidate the performance of specialized nursing skills that are required to carry out prescribed medical therapies among Japanese nurses and the need for additional training to accomplish thesecomplex tasks. An anonymous self-administered questionnaire that comprised 38 items wasdistributed to 637 nurses from 8 different facilities in prefecture A who had at least 5 years of clinical experience. Analysis of the data revealed that specialized nursing skills, such as administration of special drugs, were performed by more than 60% of nurses at 100-299-bed facilities. Five items were performed by more nurses at 100-299-bed facilities than nurses at 300-499-bed facilities. In terms of awareness of the need for specific training, at 100-299-bed facilities, about 20% of nurses believed that nurses who received specific training could perform specialized nursing skills. These findings suggest that proactive participation in specific training is needed in order for nurses to safely perform specific skills for complex procedures.
