    Hi sir RNrouge, thank you for the reply. I just wanna clarify that all the docs that are needed to be scanned at DHA website don't need to be red-ribboned. Is that right? Thank you.

    Hello Ma'am,

    I have read your post and I really thank you for this post. Ma'am, what is the minimum experience for you to work in Dubai? Is there also a minimum experience for you to be able to take the Prometric Exam? Could a 6-month experience be enough? I hope you can answer me. Thank you Ma'am and God bless you.

    The latest update was that the experience should be at least 2 years.

    Is the Prometric Exam basically the NCLEX? Do you know how much an American nurse would make working in Dubai? I found a hospital there called the American Hospital of Dubai which is a mid-sized private hospital. If you can help answer any questions, please let me know. Thanks.

    Prometric Exam is not the same as NCLEX, though they have similarities. Computer-based, multiple choice. But if you graduated and is registered to practice as a nurse in the US, you are exempted from taking the Prometric exam.

    You actually don't need to. But just to be sure, some of the employers are looking for autheticated/red-ribboned credentials when you apply in Dubai.

    reenanova, there are cases of some newly graduate Filipino nurses who got the job. There is actually no minimum experience required before you take the DHA exam for nurses, they will evaluate you and verify your credentials before they give you the go signal to take the exam. But because of a lot of nurses with qualified experiences, you might have to compete with them for the job. I suggest you gain more experience but it is completely up to you. If you really are keen and determined to go to Dubai then I bid well wishes for you.

    findingnetto, Everyone has a shot in passing the exam. You just have to study and refresh your nursing knowledge. Of course you must be a registered nurse in the Philippines before you can take the exam.

    tacomaster, Prometric is the counterpart of NCLEX in Dubai. I have no idea how much would be the salary of an American nurse but I bet it would be a good amount depending of course on the experience. I have some friends working in American Hospital Dubai and the benefits are good.

    Sharlowtee26,
    I appreciate the response. Do you work in Dubai now? If so, how are you liking it? Do you work a typical shift, 12 hours 3 times a week?

    Not yet. Just submitted my documents a week ago. Hope to pass the credentialing process soon!

    hello RNRouge!

    how much is the usual range of salary offered for Filipino nurses in Dubai?
    A friend told me that it is should not be lower than 5,000 Dirhams, though she's not absolutely sure.
