I have been reading a lot about Japan and especially working there. I understand the process of being a healthcare worker. However, besides the exam and everything what are the other requirements? I am a nursing assistant with my mother in the U.S. We were curious about the home health care program and jobs in Japan. We are moving to Tokyo, Japan soon and is studying Japanese. We have worked at our current home healthcare job longer than 3 years and have the experience. Currently, we work as taking care of our relative and a woman living in our house. It is a home care health job. We are registered nurses. I was wondering how would this work in our situation? Also would we need any reference or anything from our current employer/job? I was also wondering are there certain restrictions for specific ethnic races like I have read? I am studying the language beforehand, but I wonder if there is no way of having the exam in a different language besides only in Japanese? Since my family is also looking for other work in Japan, I am open to any information that can be helpful.
