Vietnam and Japan have signed and exchanged a legal document on a cooperative agreement to send and receive nurse practitioners and orderlies between the two countries.
Signatories were Vietnamese Minister of Industry and Trade Vu Huy Hoang and Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba.
The document details commitments made by the two countries in the Vietnam-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement signed in December 2008.
It also concretises a memorandum of understanding on the mechanism to receive qualified Vietnamese nurses and orderlies, signed by Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and his Japanese counterpart Yoshihiko Noda on October 31, 2011 during PM Dung’s visit to Japan.
Under the agreement, Japan will officially receive qualified Vietnamese nurses and orderlies in both the profession and the Japanese language to study and work in Japan for three years (for nurse practitioners) and four years (for orderlies).
Candidates have to sit the examination to gain Japan’s national certificate and if they pass, they can work in an ongoing role in Japan’s hospitals and sanatoriums.
In turn, Vietnam will receive Japanese nurses and orderlies qualified in the profession and in the Vietnamese language to work in the country.
Vietnam has become the third country to cooperate with Japan in the exchange of nurse practitioners and orderlies.
