    Nursing DOH Exam in UAE

    @bancham i just want to share my fiance's experience. She recently took the DOH exam last January. She went to Dubai under visit visa to try her luck in landing a nursing job. She was a unit OIC already in one of the tertiary hospitals in QC with almost 5 years experience when she resigned to go to dubai. She tried to apply to different hospitals and clinics in Dubai but despite her very impressive resume there was not even a single prospective employer who accepted her cv. Because of this she was forced to take the DOH exam immediately before her visa expires. Background of the exam: - 3 person panel interview (one is a doctor and i don't know the logic behind it) - maximum of 12 candidates per exam date, each will enter the panel room one at a time - one examiner one topic and it's up to each examiner if how many related questions she/he will ask you regarding his/her topic My fiance's topic was all about IV therapy, blood transfusion and the GI system. All of them who took the exam during that day agreed that it was not hard at all. If you have enough experience chances are, you will most likely answer their questions because most of the questions are situational with a little bit of theory. The results will be out in 2 days and it can be viewed online. After my fiance got her result she went back to the clinics and hospitals to reapply. It was so funny because the following day after she submitted her cv to different institutions her phone became so busy due to the different calls she received from HR personnels wanting to hire her ASAP. She ended signing up a contract to a clinic with a very competetive offer. She is now just waiting for her resident visa to come out. Don't worry that much of the exam just don't let your nerves get in to you. As long as you have enough clinical experience everything will be just fine! By the way I will be going there in April to take the exam as well. I am just completing my requirements and maybe I will ask my fiance to file the application for me. Are you done filing for application or will you be doing it personally when you arrive in dubai? You said that you have a relative working in Dubai? Does your relative have any idea if a different person can file for an application of someone who is not in Dubai? thanks in advance for your reply and Godbless!
  2. Hi guys, I just want to know if there's anyone here who has tried applying for a temporary license as an RPN in Ontario. I am an RN currently working in the Philippines who has an immigration application in Ontario. While working on my immigration, I applied for registration in CNO at the same time in order to look for an employer while still waiting for my papers. During my first registration in CNO I waited for 4 months only to find out that I did not qualify to sit for their RN registration. They told me that our education here in the Philippines is somewhat lacking in aspects of Science. They told me that I can still sit for the RN exam provided that I have to do some more bridging courses. Since I didn't want to take this option my immigration consultant gave me an advice to apply in the RPN registration instead. So I did requested CNO to review my credentials this time to be registered as an RPN. Again after waiting for another 4 months I received a confirmation letter stating that I am eligible to sit and register for the Canadian Registered Practical Nurse Examination. In the process of waiting for my confirmation letter, my consultant was able to look for an employer who was willing to sponsor and help in my visa application. I had an interview and written exam, after a month the potential employer sent me a job offer letter. Now I am already waiting for the approval of my LMO. Our plan is to apply for a temporary license in CNO as soon as my LMO is approved so that I can leave the country and start my job in Canada as soon as possible. My IELTS which I used in my initial application in CNO is about to expire on December and I was told by my consultant that I have to get a new one. They told me that I need a current IELTS as a requirement in the application for a temporary license since my previous IELTS will most likely be expired by the time my LMO gets approved. Is there anyone here who had the same experience in temporary license application? Do I really need to retake the IELTS exam before being granted for a temporary license? Why can't I just use my old IELTS? Isn't my old IELTS score enough to prove my fluency in English? any ideas, inputs and comments will be much appreciated. thanks guys!
  3. hi! i have an ongoing application in CNO. Is there anyone who is also waiting for CNO's approval while working here in the Philippines? just wanna share some thoughts..

    anyone registering for SRNA or in Saskatchewan?

    ill weigh my options! thanks alot cosmeticgurl! Godbless to all of us and our applications!:)
  5. @ dishes I see.. But why did you say that I may experience difficulty looking for a job? Do you mean that opportunity for nurses in canada is in a halt?Unfortunately I don't have any relatives or friends in canada whom I can live with.. I have an agency assisting me on my application so that when my eligibility comes from the college of nursing I will already have an employer thru my agency who will back me up for my lmo and visa processing. Im still contemplating about applying in another province without my agency's help. As of the moment, my agency only sends nurses to ontario and I think that it would be of my advantage if I go out of my way and apply on my own in another jurisdcition. This will leave me waiting for at least 2 ongoing applications at the same time so as to maximize my ielts eligibility and to shorten my agony of waiting and fulfilling my dreams to work and live in canada.
  6. thnks for the rep janfrn! So does this mean that having multiple applications in different provinces all at the same time will not matter and will have no effect on each other jurisdiction's decision?

    hi guys, i was planning to apply to SRNA but after reading this thread i think i changed my mind, i think i'll have to look for another province! I have been working for almost three yrs now in the Phil. and I just started my application in ontario as an rpn, after having been assessed by CNO for 4 months they offered me to do a bridging program so I decided to transfer my application to RPN thinking that I have better chances getting the eligibility because Ontario has a high standard for IENs applying as RN. Lately I've been contemplating about applying in another province while waiting for Ontario's decision so as to maximize my IELTS eligibility. Do you guys think this is ok? Is it not against the rule of any college of nursing in canada to have 2 applications at the same time with different provinces? Thanks in advace for those who will reply!:)
  9. hi guys good day! i am a new member here and just like anybody else i have some application dilemma that i wanna share with u guys.. i am an rn currently working here in the phil. for almost 3 years now and unlike other applicants in cno nursing is my first and only degree. last october i applied for an eligibility in ontario to take the exam but last february cno sent me their evaluation stating that i did not meet the requirements so they gave me an option to withdraw my application, do a bridging program or send them additional documents for reevaluation. i did not do this alone because i applied with an assistance from my agency. when the decision of cno came out my agency told me that it would be better to apply as an rpn in cno this time rather than pursuing the rn path because nursing degree from the phil. falls short compared to their nursing degree unless nursing is your second course. my agency also told me that they reviewed my credentials and it matches perfectly with that of the rpn course in ontario thus giving me a better chance of obtaining an eligibility to write the exam. so i gave them my consent to go ahead and transfer my application to rpn. few weeks ago we sent the application form to cno hoping that this time i will be granted the eligibilty as rpn.. now, my dilemma is this, i am thinking of applying for eligibility in another province where it is more lenient as an rn while i am waiting for the decision of cno. i just don't want to waste my time waiting for another uncertain decision and besides my ielts will be expired by dec. so i want to maximize it. do you guys think it would be fine if i will have two ongoing applications at the same time or is there any rule from any college stating that it is not alowed? i just think that it's alright because my ongoing application is for rpn, if ever i apply in another province as rn it would be a different story.. am i right? hope you give me your thoughts on this guys.. im so confused right now.. thank u so much!
