    Can't need nurses that badly if they make it impossible to pass their exam. I try to avoid going places where I'm not welcomed. For some reason it never seems to work out. Go figure.

    Language would be a problem..... You have to learn the language

    yes, the language is really a problem, plus the fact that Japanese people in general dont respond well to gaijins (foreigners.)

    Sounds like racism is alive and well throughout the world . When the need becomes critical the Japanese will have to reconsider or their health care will suffer.

    I honestly can't help myself but to say it:

    This article sounds an awful lot like a lot of the "nursing shortage" one's printed for here. Wonder if anyone went to some internet site that is the equivalent of Japan's "allnurses" if they would find post after post about how ridiculous the idea of there being a shortage is.

    This article mirrors the ones here perfectly. Talks about the general populations age etc.

    I can't remember the article but I've read somewhere which has Japanese nurses saying that there is indeed a shortage but they discourage foreigners to apply. Foreigners who are fine with their low salary which will lead to the government not raising it.
