Vietnam to send nurses, orderlies to Japan

The Vietnam Nurses’ Association and Asian Human Power (AHP) of Japan have signed a cooperative agreement on training nurses and orderlies.

The agreement was reached at an April 24 seminar in Hanoi as part of the Vietnam-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (VJEPA) signed in 2008.

VJEPA, a bilateral agreement, includes commitments to trade liberalisation, investment and economic cooperation.

Accordingly, Vietnamese nurses and orderlies will be received by the Japanese side for training and have the chance to work in the country on a long-term basis.

Experts at the seminar shared experience in treatment and convalescence and introduced the working conditions as well as requirements for nurses and orderlies at Japanese clinics and hospitals.
