- The number of nurses working at the institution for the elderly accounted for 281 as of 1998(the Ministry of Health and Wellbeing), which amounted to 10.4% of the number of the employees at all the institutions for the elderly. Nevertheless, there do not exist any specialized in-service education, organization and meeting for nurses working in the nursing home, and their activity is not known at all.
Few studies on the nursing field of the nursing home is almost absent, and studies on the intention to use the nursing home, the determinants to use it, the development of the nursing home model and the like have been conducted for the recent 2 to 3 years. And some studies have been conducted on the health characteristics of the elderly resident at the nursing home, comparison of the function of daily life and the like. Studies on the nurse's job have never been conducted. In particular, the guidebook for the job of nurses is not only provided but even the level of job and role is not known.

The research method included the literature review, the field survey, the interview, the business log analysis. This study investigated the nursing activities of nurses working in the nursing home, investigated its validity through the focus group and drew 116 items concerning the nursing activities. And to confirm the validity of this nursing activities through practicing nursing, this study conducted the questionnaire research on 92 practicing nurses working in the paid, "cost" and free-charging nursing home. Of them, 38 items were excluded and finally 78 items on the nursing activities of nurses working in the nursing home were accepted.
Data analysis was conducted using the SAS statistical program. Data were analyzed on the general characteristics, nursing activities and frequency of nurses working in the nursing home using frequency and percentage. Mean and standard deviation were calculated on the frequency and content of nursing activities. Analysis was conducted on the difference in nursing activities according to types of nursing homes. As a result, the nursing activities of nurses working in the nursing home was divided into 78 nursing activities pertaining to 13 domains. The first domain was the nursing domain of respiration which included the followings: all kinds of basic check up; T.P.R; aspiration; oxygen therapy; use of the humidifier; cardiopulmonary resuscitation(artificial respiration); evaluation of the level of satisfaction; the evaluation of nursing quality; and the like.

Nursing activities related to the role of nurses not included in 12 existing domains such as specialized on-the-job training and other special education for nurses and nursing activities such as promotion of local community residents are the field that can place emphasis on speciality as the nurse of the nursing home for the elderly. Thus this was added to the program development domain as it was thought that it was necessary to classify it as another domain.
An attempt was made to make a comparison between clinical nursing activities and nursing activities in the nursing home for the elderly. As a result, it could be found that greater emphasis was placed on nursing activities in the communication, counseling and education and security nursing domains in the nursing home than on clinical nursing activities, which indicates that nursing activities was mentioned in concrete and diverse ways.

And it provided basic material for calculating the price for nursing services and the proper number of nursing manpower within the nursing home for the elderly. In terms of nursing education, this study ascertained what was the nursing activities to strengthen for nurses within the nursing home for the elderly so that it might apply to the nursing curriculum.
This study had some limitation in drawing the nursing activities proper to the nursing home for the elderly in greater depth because the model of classification framework used in this study was related to the clinical nursing activities studied for general hospital. Accordingly, it is thought that it is more necessary to make the future study of its refinement. Moreover, it is necessary to set the job standard of each nursing activities.
