[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
  The present study aims to identify nursing skills for which newly graduated nurses want to receive support, for the purpose of providing nursing skills support according to the needs of newly graduated nurses.
Methods:
  A mail questionnaire survey was conducted among 370 alumni of the academic year 2009 of 5 universities during the period from March to June in 2010. The questionnaire was anonymous for ethical reasons. The present study was conducted after obtaining approvals from the ethical review boards of the participating universities.
Results:
  Responses were obtained from a total of 73 subjects (response rate, 19.7%), and the valid response rate was 98.6%.
  i)?To the question of whether subjects had ever wanted to receive nursing skills support, 20 subjects (27.8%) responded ?always,? and 25 subjects (34.7%) responded ?often.?
  ii)?For the question of which items subjects wanted to receive skills support for during the past year, the three items with the highest numbers of responses were ?management of mechanical ventilator? (n=56, 77.8%), ?preparation, assistance, and management of central venous injection? (n=50, 69.4%), and ?electrocardiogram monitoring, and attachment and management of 12-lead electrocardiogram? (n=49; 68.1%).
Conclusion:
  More than 60% of newly graduated nurses ?always? or ?often? wanted to receive nursing skills support, indicating that newly graduated nurses feel uncertain about their nursing skills. In addition, the nursing skills for which the greatest numbers of newly graduated nurses wanted to receive support were identified to be skills which are not expected to be performed individually in the nursing education and nursing training in Japan.
