Vinh Long (VNA) – The Department of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs of Vinh Long province held a working session on June 7 with Japanese partners to discuss recruiting local nursing apprentices.

The guests revealed that Japan has high demand for nurses due to the growing elderly population in the country.

According to Kashimoto, head of the IkiiKiKan social welfare centre in Okayama prefecture, Vietnamese students who want to study and work in Japan have to graduate in nursing and speak some Japanese.

When learning and working at nursing homes in Japan, Vietnamese trainees can take Japan’s national nursing examination, which will qualify them to work at nursing facilities in Vietnam.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Lu Quang Ngoi pledged to work with Japanese partners in training and selecting candidates.

He proposed Japanese partners provide equipment for the province’s schools, hospitals and social welfare centres to increase the quality of health care for the elderly and help local students get accustomed to advanced technology.

The Japanese delegation also presented some healthcare equipment for the elderly such as wheelchairs, sphygmomanometers and auto bathtubs.-VNA
