    Hi, my wife gave HAAD RN exam through pearson vue in bangalore and couldnt pass on first attempt as she was saying questions are little tricky though they look easy. secondly i wana check how many answers should be correct out of 150 to get pass in this exam and which books can be referred for practise? Your replies are highly appreciated. Thaks.

    I passed HAAD last January 28, 2010.. If I compare HAAD and NCLEX, NCLEX is much harder.. The questions in HAAD are simple and most of the choices, if you are going to choose for the correct answer is obvious..unlike the nclex questions, which are full of tricks.. I studied for 2 weeks and most of those topics are the common diseases.. I thought if ever i fail that test, i can pass it on my second try because believe me, like the other passers said, it's not that hard but it's not that easy though..but obviously, it's doable...

    Here's what came out.. looks similar to other HAAD passers:
    DM, MI, rheumatoid arthritis, cataract/drugs, therapeutic communication, Lithium, parkinson's, dementia, alzheimer's.. any common diseases that you hear/encounter..

    hope these helps..fellow nurses, you can do it...

    hello king james!
    Im interested in taking the exams once im back to PI. how did u start your registration? Can i just register easily thru online... I hope to receive any reply from you so soon... i just want my luck in UEA this time..

    Thanks for sharing your experience with HAAD. anyway, most of the hospitals in UAE require that you have at least a year of experience in a hospital setting particularly in a specialized unit. longer years of experience is an advantage.(obviously) I'm also a staff nurse in the Philippines, working for 4 years and counting... I want to apply also for HAAD so I can try my luck in UAE. I suggest you get to work stat. because the longer you're out of work, the harder it is to get employment in other countries. even a 6 months non-working gap from your previous employment require an explanation before some agencies consider you.(talk about demanding agencies.)

    I have an account at the Pearson Vue for the HAAD-RN exam but I have not scheduled for the exam. I would like to know if there are other requirements for the exam or is the exam entirely separate from the Abu Dhabi licensure, i mean, i can continue taking the exam and do all my eligibility or application to Abu Dhabi afterwards? And can I ask for more tips for the test-takers like me.. thank you.

    After scheduling an exam, you just need to bring 2 valid IDs. One passport and government ID or any valid IDs. there are instructions there the time you need to be on the testing center so you just need to read. I'll be taking the HAAD exam tomorrow at 9am. whew! Good luck me! I was just scanning some notes and good thing I found this post so that I can just some few more notes to study. Still have 24 hours before the exam. lol..

    hi! like most of you, i am about to take my haad exam next week. thanks for those people who shared their experiences with regards to this exam. now, i have an idea where to start.

    btw, after passing the exam, what is the next step for licensure? is this examination an eligibility test only for registration or is it the licensure exam itself?

    Hi, I just wanna ask some details about the exam requirements of HAAD, unlike NCLEX that requires a lot of documents before being eligible to take the exam, what does HAAD require before you become eligible to take the exam? From what I have seen in Pearsonvue, it only requires you to register online and schedule an exam and pay $90 fee, is that correct or you still need to pass some required documents first? or is it after passing the exam that you are required to pass those documents? I am planning to take the exam this August, I hope to hear from you guys. Thank you so much.

    if you took the nclex and local nle,haad is really easy.i took my exam 5 days after registering at pearsonvue and have no single idea about the exam..the questions are very basic, you can use the saunders or mosby as your review material.there are also drug and ivf computations, and basic nursing knowledge.i took my exam last week and i passed.
