The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) announced yesterday that Japan will be translating its licensure examination for nurses to English in an effort to facilitate the entry of foreign nurses to its healthcare workforce.
Pinoy R.N. reported back in November the difficulty faced by Filipino nurses in passing the Japanese nurse licensure examination which was given entirely in Niponggo.
Last year, only one Filipino examinee passed the exam which is administered every February.
