TOYO WORK VISITS
NURSING DEPARTMENT OF CUU LONG COLLEGE
On May 15, 2014, Mr.
Toshio Takeuchi, a company official of Toyo Work paid a working visit to
the campuses and Nursing Department of Cuu Long College of Technology.
He was accompanied by Mr V.T.Tung - General Director of Kimyomatsu
Consultant Co., LTD, Vietnam.
Toyo is a consulting
and job placement company in Japan. Toyo Work
currently has 2,000 customers. Previously, the company mainly recruited
engineers and graduate fellows, but now it is aiming at the nursing
workforce. Since June this year, the Japanese government has had a
policy on recruiting Nurses in Vietnam. Because
Japan's population is aging rapidly, the need
for nursing care arises considerably. At present, Japan has about
140,000 nurses, in which 10% are foreigners. In
the future, it will need about 100,000 more nursing technicians, who
will be recruited from Southeast Asian countries
including Vietnam. There have been a small number of trainee nurses from
Hanoi working in Japan.
Toyo Work has
initially evaluated nursing students graduating
from Cuu Long College as appropriate for
recruitment. They need to be
Japanese language and some skills of Japanese culture and customs. The
next steps will be taken soon.
