Attendees included Mr. Pham Duc Muc, President of the Vietnam Nurses Association; Mr. Phan Canh Chuong, Vice - President of the Vietnam Nurses Association and Head of Nursing Department of Hue Central hospital;  Ms. Pham Thu Ha, Member of the Vietnam Nurses Association; Ms. Yuko Kamata  from Human Resources Department of the Seirei Social Welfare Community; Dr. Shohei Ogi, Provost of Seirei Christopher University; Dr. Emiko Yoko - Director of Seirei Christopher University College of Carework; Mr. Makoto Yamamoto, Deputy head of Seirei Human Resources Department; Distinguished Teacher Le Cong Co, DTI president and Provost; Associate Professor Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Minh, DTU Vice-Provost; and DTU lecturers and students of Health Sciences.
The signing ceremony 

Ms. Yuko Kamata said: “Nursing is an important component in health care and requires nurses to master a wealth of knowledge and communication skills. They must also be careful, responsive and dynamic. After visiting DTU, we have a high regard for the university and students. Today’s agreement will strengthen our relationship in the career orientation, education and recruitment of highly-qualified nurses who will study and work in Japan.”

Applicants must obtain a JLPT-N2 certificate in the Japanese language. Successful candidates will receive a full tuition loan from SEIRE, with a refund exemption for graduates who work at  their hospitals and care facilities for at least 4-and-a-half years.  

Mr. Pham Duc Muc, President of the Vietnam Nurses Association, said: “The collaborative program was a great opportunity for Vietnamese nurses to learn their profession and skills in Japan, and an integral part of the bilateral partnership programs in community health care between Japan and Vietnam. In recent years, the shortage of qualified nurses has been a global problem and currently 1,000 Vietnamese nurses are living in Japan as care workers. DTU is one of the pioneers in this area in Vietnam and I know that this collaboration will meet people’s expectations and offer our nurses more opportunities to develop their expertise.”

The Seirei Social Welfare Community then met with DTU Nursing students to announce the study abroad and EPA (Economic Partnership Agreement) scholarship program. Ms. Yuko Kamata, Managing Executive Officer of Human Resources Department at SEIREI, discussed the requirements and benefits of the program. Qualified overseas students, who have already completed a three or four year nursing course, will receive free training in the Japanese language and an expert knowledge in health care, to prepare them for the national exam for a Kaigo-Shi Certificate in Health Care. If students stay in Japan as care workers for at least 5 years, they will be granted Kaigo-Shi Certificates in Health Care, without an examination and can also work part-time to pay daily expenses. The average annual income will be approximately 3.2 million Japanese yen, equivalent to 637 million dong.
