Currently, Japan's 29% of total population is over 65 years of age and that is about 36.4 million and this population relies on nurses for taking care of them, helping them with everyday life. The older population needs young volunteers who can help them in carrying out everyday tasks. Thus, Japanese government encourages more and more students to choose nursing in universities.
