Japan faces a severe shortage of nurses and caregivers who take care of support needed elderlies. The purpose of this study is to examine the job satisfaction and the willingness to continue working of nursing staffs who are working for elderlies in different types of nursing care services in Akita where the highest aging rate are seen in Japan. Obtained 934 valid responses (valid response rate: 8.32%) were analyzed using multiple regression analysis in the empowerment framework. Comparing the results of different types of nursing care facilities, it shows that factors affect "job satisfaction" and “willingness to continue working” are different as each type of facility provides its own work style and work content.
