The training period and method of test for the Vietnamese nurses who come under the economic partnership agreement (EPA) were relaxed. It became easier to pass a national examination to obtain a Japanese nurse license. The basic rule that all the personnel who wish to engage in a nursing job in Japan is to obtain a Japanese license is unchanged.
How can I live and work in Japan as a licensed nurse practitioner?
I am a licensed nurse practitioner in Vietnam. I was told that Japan has loosened its immigration rules to attract more skilled workers to Japan. I want to know how I can apply for a visa of Japan to work and live there. Also, do I need to get a nurse license issued in Japan to practice?
