Pinay Nurse topped an examination in Japan

Pinay tops Japan test for nurse

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and the Philippines Nurses Association (PNA) lauded a nurse from Abra who topped an examination in Japan last February.

Ever Gammed Lalin, 34, topped the Japanese test, the first to do so since the POEA and the Japan International Corporation of Welfare Services (JICWELS) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in January last year for the deployment and acceptance of nurses and caregivers to that country.

More than 200 nurses, including 93 from the Philippines took the test, it was learned.

“She’s fortunate enough to pass the exam considering that no one had done that in the past. We already sent her a congratulatory letter,’’ Lina de Luna of the POEA client services division said in an interview.

“Right now, we are trying to get in touch with her to get some tips para naman sa kapakanan ng susunod na batch. But she is yet to reply,’’ she added.

De Luna said that Lalin possibly took the examination seriously although she was not among those who were given exemption for the training.

Maristella Abenojar, executive director of the PNA also expressed amazement at how Lalin got the record.

“Historically, walang pumapasa na foreign nurses sa Japan due to language barrier. This is a development but we have to consider ano yung factor,’’ Abenojar said.

She noted that the six-month training given the nurses to learn Nihonggo is not enough.
