Twenty-seven Meghalaya nurses set to begin careers in Japan

Twenty-seven nurses from Meghalaya are set to begin their professional journey in Japan after completing their training in Japanese. They will be placed in various hospitals and care homes across Japan.

The selection of these nurses followed an Overseas Nursing Job Fair in August 2023, where they secured placements through the “Skills Meghalaya” scheme.

The fair received a significant response with over one thousand registrations from across the state.

This initiative, sponsored by the Meghalaya government through the Meghalaya State Skill Development Society (MSSDS), provides Rs 50,000 in support to each candidate. The goal is to support three hundred nurses in the coming years.

Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma recently met with the teachers and students involved in this initiative. Expressing pride, he said, “It is wonderful to see nurses from our state venture abroad to serve people. We wish them success and look forward to hearing positive stories about their experiences. I also encourage others to seize such opportunities, not just for livelihood but also for personal and professional growth.”

The “Skills Meghalaya” initiative, under which this training was conducted, aims to equip youth with essential skills. Organized by MSSDS and the Department of Health & Family Welfare, the program collaborates with firms to offer language training and job placements.

Four firms, including NAVIS, have been identified as facilitators for foreign placements. An MoU was signed with these firms on December 7, 2023, to facilitate language training and job placements in countries such as Japan, the UK, Singapore, and the UAE.
