This landmark partnership is poised to invigorate skill development efforts in healthcare and allied domains, elevating the language proficiency and domain expertise of aspiring candidates seeking remarkable career opportunities abroad.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) between NSDCI and INC stands as a testament to their shared commitment to cultivating a globally competitive healthcare workforce. Under the visionary Skill India International Mission, NSDCI is set to deploy a staggering 10,000 highly skilled healthcare professionals in its initial phase, bolstering India’s presence on the global healthcare stage. INC, serving as the knowledge partner, will play a pivotal role in enabling Indian healthcare practitioners to access promising employment avenues across the world.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), NSDCI is resolute in its pursuit of fortifying India’s healthcare workforce through enhanced skill standardization, language proficiency augmentation, and vocational training. By bridging the gap between talent and demand for employment-ready healthcare professionals in foreign nations, this partnership with INC aspires to cultivate a cadre of medical experts equipped with the necessary competencies to flourish globally.

To empower healthcare professionals with the tools for international success, NSDCI will conduct a comprehensive array of preparatory examinations in diverse foreign languages, encompassing English, German, and other relevant tongues. Furthermore, healthcare technical assessments, including OSCE/NCLEX, will be employed to foster a robust environment for foreign language acquisition and foster knowledge exchange, confidence, and effective communication skills among nurses.

In addition to its core objectives, this collaboration places particular emphasis on equipping aspiring candidates from the northeastern states of India with Japanese language training, thus opening the doors to unprecedented career prospects in Japan. By broadening the horizons of skilled labor mobility, NSDCI, and INC are empowering healthcare professionals to embark on transformative journeys abroad, ensuring they are equipped with the necessary expertise and readiness to thrive in their chosen international healthcare settings. Prospective candidates will benefit from pre-diagnostic assessments and an innovative Nursing Competency Enhancement Bridge program, designed to facilitate a seamless transition into the industry.
