    to work in Dubai one should have minimum 3yrs working exp-now most of the hospital asks for 4yrs BSN for a staff nurse post.English and working knowleddge of arabic is necessary.to work in govt one should have MOH license and to work in private[ DOH license[which u get after passing exam[maximum 3 attempts allowed]-to appear for exam u need to verify all ur nursing cert.-and license almost same way cgfns does]this is for asian graduates.graduates from UK /US etc are exempted from this exam.For the same post a local arab person gets higher salary than an asian employee.Givt jobs pay better like 4000Dhs plus but there are nurses getting just1200 dhs and working two shifts in private 4dhs=1US$.standard of living is very high.taxis are very expansive-Driving lic-is very difficult to get.Think twice before landing in Dubai if u are coming alone.If you have someone to support then it should be fine.thanks
    Hi!!! I would also like to work in Dubai, there are traveling agencies here in the Philippines that process 3months tourist visa in Dubai then once you get there it's for you to find a hospital or a job. Do you think this will be an easy way for me? I only have a 6months hospital work experience and the saddest thing is that most recruitment agencies here want at least 2years experience, do you think I could easily land a job in Dubai? Won't they consider my license in the US (RN) instead of my experience?

    Hi! I try to check for some info, I hope this will help. Check on Dubai Center for Special Needs, Welcare Hospital.Goodluck!

    Hi! Hospitals here will not consider your US license, what is important for them is you have the experience, you have enough knowledge and you can easily adapt to the environment. Why not continue working there for at least a year to learn more. I dont want to discourage you but this place is not as good as you are expecting, so be prepared.

    Thank you flyinghigh for enligthening me!!! Okay I'll just focus myself and wait for my petition in the US, I just felt sad with this retrogression issue . US is the right place for nurses w/ or w/o experience, as long as you passed the exams needed and you are willing to work in a long term care or a rehab facilities, and i am more than willing to work there due to limited hospital experience. Mabuhay USA!!!

    Hospitals are willing to petition (not necessarily sponsor) even w/o much exp. or even none at all. Some hospitals even like it more if you haven't done any training or took a nursing job in the Philippines because they won't have to "re-train" you; the nurse doesn't have to "unlearn" anything she picked up.
    They like to train you from scratch w/c is a lot easier than having the nurse unlearn some things.

    You won't get this if going through agencies in the Phil. though. They will tell you otherwise.

    Hey RN37

    Thanks for the info, I have emailed the Dubai centre for special needs but not heard back from them yet? Considering phoning them tomorrow. From what you have said you do not seem keen on nursing in Dubai, is this just your place of work or everywhere.
