We’ve already talked about the
Specified Skilled Worker Visa available for those who want to live and work in Japan. But under this type of visa are 14 different work industries. In this article, we will be focusing on the Care Worker Industry.


The
Nursing care skills evaluation and Nursing care Japanese language evaluation tests are examinations made for those who have the intention of applying as a Specified Skilled Worker for the Care Worker Industry in Japan. The tests are aimed to measure a person’s nursing skills including the related Japanese terminologies involved in the service.

As of this moment, there are no plans to conduct the tests in Japan.
