  1. good day! just wanna ask when is the next hiring of poea for nurses in japan this year? cause last year they announced it july..thank you..

  2. hi nurses lab. kelan po ulit hiring ng careworker sa japan this 2014? hoping for your reply. thanks po.

  3. hello,
    i was wondering if they would also hire new graduates and no hospital experience…. willing to work and can speak basic japanese. flexible to any schedule. Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Board passer?

  4. Hi, so kung RN ka, dpat d ka pa nagtetake ng board and may caregiver certificate ka to apply for caregiver?

  5. Nurseslabs:is it true po ba na hindi tinatanggap ang mga RN without exp. na gustong mg-apply for caregiver?

    • tanx… it free po ba?matic na pgnapili ung isang applicant/sino po mgsshoulder? RN without exp.,do we need to undergo 6months training as caregiver and another 6months for language training?ganun po b un?

    • 1. Yup everything is free, except for some OFW fees like medical exam and Philhealth.
      2. Actually they are not accepting RN without experience, rather, they’re accepting underboard nurses for the position of Caregiver. RN’s can only apply for a postion of Nurse but they should have at least 3 years as a Staff Nurse.

    • Oh my gosh!!!!really???one of my friend is an RN but she applied for a caregiver and she is now in come?

    • I just shared my own experience based on the recent hiring by the POEA for Japan. Don’t loose hope yet. You’re a RN right? try to have an experience and for sure you’ll be competitive in any way ma’am.
