Arbic Speaking RN

Posted

Anybody has an idea where in New Jersey I can find a facility that hires Bilingual Arbic/English RN?

Are you credentialed as a medical translator or interpreter? While handy, JC requires the use of certified, qualified personnel to interpret in the medical setting.

Otherwise most NJ hospitals are first seeking BSN then experienced nurses for staff positions. Bilingual skills are nice but credentials are necessary to technically be useful in a medical setting.

I am RN with BSN ,I'm not certified translator but I worked in middle east for more than two years and Arabic was the mode of communication to our patient and doctors.

I know job market is tough now a days and I thought the only way I could get a job is to find a facility who accept Arab patients. There are 200k Arab people in New Jersey I wonder where they situated .

Honestly all over the state. There are communities in north, central , coastal, and southern NJ.

You should look into getting credentialed as a translator and/or interpreter if your medical Arabic skills are significant. This will increase your marketability. Google medical interpreter certification that meets JC standards.
