The number of foreign applicants who passed the recent annual nursing exam fell to 9.6%. In the previous year, it was a record high 11.3%.

Because of a shortage of nurses, Japan has recruited nurses from Indonesia and the Philippines.

The applicants have struggled with Japanese language so this year's test was lengthened to 100 minutes and included hiragana characters to all of the kanji to make reading easier.
