MANILA, Philippines -- Let us be inspired by the first kangoshi (Japan registered nurse), Ever Lalin, who passed the exam through her tremendous effort. As in a marathon, we must aim to reach the finish line - and that is passing the nursing licensure exam.”

These were the words of Christine Joy Montoya as she urged her fellow candidates to make most of the opportunity and pass the test.

Montoya and 69 other Japan nurse candidates are attending a language and culture training at the TESDA Language Skills Institute in Taguig City. The Japanese language and culture training for Filipino "kangoshi" candidates is ongoing until May 20.

TESDA director general Joel Villanueva presided over the launch of the Preparatory Japanese Language Training under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA). Also present were Ambassador Makoto Katsura; Carlos Cao, administrator, Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA); Shuji Takatori, director, Japan Foundation Manila; and Japan Embassy, and TESDA officials.

Twenty Japanese and four Filipino trainors will conduct the training. The Japan Foundation, with support from TESDA and the Nihongo Center Foundation, is conducting the intensive Japanese language training in the Philippines

Tripoli – In Tripoli and Libya’s main hospitals, some 3,000 Filipino health care workers, mostly women, continue to work despite the civil war underway. According to Mgr Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, apostolic Vicar of Tripoli, their presence is an example of Christian witness for the local Catholic community and the Libyan population.
“Nurses and doctors continue to provide their services with passion and conscientiousness,” the vicar said, “giving their all to the Christian community in Libya”.

The prelate noted that Filipino nurses are employed in almost all of Libyan health facilities. Many of them are also in Benghazi, Misratah and Brega where fighting between troops loyal to colonel Gaddafi and rebels are still going on.

According to Filipino media, about 40 Filipino workers are being used as human shields by the colonel’s militias. “I don’t have sufficient information to confirm the news,” the prelate said. “It is hard to know what is going on in the warzones”.

MANILA, Philippines - A Filipino priest said today that at least 10 Filipino nurses were snatched by armed men in the city of Misrata in Libya, where dozens of people were wounded following an assault by Moammar Gadhafi's forces.

Father Allan Asebuche, a Filipino Catholic priest in Tripoli, said that the nurses were taken by armed men from their quarters and then moved five kilometers away from the hospital, near the port area in Misrata.

Asebuche said they are not sure if the Filipino nurses were taken to treat the wounded comrades of the armed men or if they are being used as human shields. He said they are also not sure if the nurses were taken by pro- or anti-Gadhafi forces.

He said that the information was relayed to them by wounded "military men" who were being treated at the hospital where the Filipino nurses are working.

"Yes, military [men] who were injured and brought to the hospital. They talked about this concern with other Filipino nurses, and they are worried about the situation of our brothers and sisters there," Asebuche said in an interview on ABS-CBN News Channel.

by Susan G. de leon


‘Yobun’-futsu no firipin-jin kango-shi,’ it’s the Japanese translation of "extra-ordinary Filipino nurse," a description that fits Ever Lalin, the only Pinoy passer in the Japan nursing examinations.


A native of Danglas, Abra, Ever belongs to the first batch of 98 nurses and caregivers who went to Japan in May last year under the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) to undergo a six-month rigid and intensive language training and nursing review in preparation for the Japanese nursing licensure examination.


The exam included a proficiency test in “kanji,” Chinese characters that are a mindset away from those schooled in the Roman alphabet.


Ever admitted that she really had a hard time studying due to language barriers. Nevertheless, she never allowed such linguistic requirement to bring her aspirations down.



"I learned to love the language and to learn everything by heart. The training was hard, but I just thought that I have to pass not for myself but for the future of my children and family in the Philippines," she shared in an interview posted at pinoy.com.

MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) today belied reports that 10 Filipino nurses are being held hostage in the rebel-controlled city of Misurata in Libya.


Philippine Ambassador to Libya Alejandro Vicente said in a radio interview that the Filipino nurses are just being transferred by anti-government forces to a safer place.


"I understand they are just being transferred," Vicente said, adding that Philippine embassy people will try for the second time today to enter Misurata.


In a separate radio report, DFA Secretary Albert del Rosario said that Philippine embassy officers tried to enter Misurata yesterday to fetch the nurses, but they were refused entry into the city that is under siege by the forces of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.


Del Rosario said Libyan authorities will try to escort the embassy personnel into the city today to fetch the nurses. He, however, clarified that the Philippine embassy will not force the Filipinos, mostly medical workers, to come with them.

LONDON – More than 500 Filipino medical workers were among those who participated in the huge protest last week dubbed as the “March for the Alternative” of the Trade Union Congress in the United Kingdom

The event gathered an estimated 300,000 protesters who denounced budget cuts in public services and welfare benefits as well as reforms in the National Health Service (NHS).

Aside from the nurses, teachers, students, union members and organized labor groups also joined the rally.

The Pinoy marchers believe the budget cut will eventually cut off employment opportunities for new Filipino nursing graduates to give way to EU citizens.

Despite a devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan this month and the ensuing nuclear accident, a third batch of over 80 Filipino nurses are scheduled to go there on May 30 for a language training in preparation for that country’s tough licensure examinations.

In a press briefing, Japanese Ambassador Makoto Katsura said a total of 82 Filipinos will leave for Japan to undergo intensive Japanese language training there, after a two-month preparatory language course in Manila to be conducted by Japanese instructors.

“Although I have no doubts that you will be able to fulfill your duties and responsibilities as healthcare professionals in Japan, I am also aware that one of the most difficult obstacles for passing the Japanese nursing licensure examinations is the language barrier," Katsura said at the formal launch of the training course.

This is the first time that Japan is implementing a preparatory language course prior to the applicants’ departure for Japan. Only two of the 139 Filipino nurses in previous batches passed that country’s licensure exam.

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine embassy in Brussels, Belgium has cautioned Filipino nurses on available jobs advertised by recruiters who take advantage of the acute shortage of nurses in the European country.
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), in a press statement on Tuesday, said although there is a shortage of nurses in Belgium, foreign nurses encounter difficulty in entering this country due to restrictions imposed by the European Commission.

The DFA, quoting the embassy in Brussels, cited European Directive 2005/36/EC that was passed in September 7, 2005, which limits workers.

“The European Directive is the relevant law on equivalency which consolidates the rules currently regulating the recognition of professional qualifications,” the DFA said

A total of 16 Indonesian and Filipino nurses passed the Japanese qualification examination in February, paving the way for them to stay in Japan, the health ministry said Friday.

The group accounts for only 4 percent of all foreigners who took the exam, up about a point from last year, when a mere three candidates passed, the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry said.

Under bilateral free-trade agreements Japan concluded with Indonesia and the Philippines, nurses from the countries are allowed to work in Japanese hospitals for three years and stay if they can pass the exam in that period.
