Language Barrier Makes Entry of Filipino Nurses to Japan Difficult






Learning an entirely new language in six months continues to be the biggest hurdle  for Filipino Nurses seeking to enter the Japanese healthcare workforce with only one Filipino nurse passing the Japanese nurse licensure examination since the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement was signed between the two countries.

The Japanese nurse licensure examination is given entirely in Nihongo.

As such, the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the  Philippine Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) are set to hold a series of meeting to discuss ways to help foreign nurses, especially Filipinos, pass the Japanese nursing licensure examination.

Under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement, Filipino nurses are given three chances to take and pass Japan’s nurse licensure examination.

Japan is currently looking to hire foreign nurses to tend to its aging population. It is also facing a looming nursing shortage.
