What is it about?
In this study, we explored the experiences of Indonesian nurses working in Japanese hospitals. We found that they face challenges in communication and adapting to different nursing practices and cultures. To help them, we suggest providing support in language learning and bridging cultural gaps, which could benefit both the nurses and their patients.

Why is it important?
This research is unique because it sheds light on the experiences of Indonesian nurses working in Japan, a topic that hasn't been extensively explored. It's timely because the movement of healthcare professionals across borders is a global trend, and understanding their experiences can inform better support systems. This study can help healthcare institutions, policymakers, and educators improve the integration and well-being of migrant nurses, making it relevant and valuable for a wide readership interested in global healthcare and migration issues.
