Japan's Kyodo News Agency reported Sunday that the welfare ministry is creating a new eased license category for filipino nurses and caregivers to facilitate entry of filipino healthcare workers to japanese healthcare facilities under a bilateral free-trade agreement between the two asian countries.
.......
Under the agreement signed last September by then Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Japan plans to accept 400 nurses and 600 caregivers in the first two years from fiscal 2007 starting April 1, 2007.
.......
The new eased licensing system will pave the way for those who have not passed a national exam as they will be certified as a "practical" nursing-caregiver so long as they have completed related courses at colleges, universities or vocational schools.
.......
The Japan Association of Certified Care Workers, however, said the measure would lead to a decline in the standard of care.

If Japan wants Filipino caregivers, it better ease requirements. As if Filipinos are dying to work as caregivers in Japan. It will have to compete with the US, UK, Canada and other European countries for Filipino caregivers.
