I have worked first in Dubai as RN also,I took DHA exam and passed. The eligibility letter was handed to my Employer Dubai based and made it to license. After two years I was offered in other hospital in Sharjah. In Sharjah,we need MOH License. So I needed to convert my DHA to MOH. Then after a year I moved to ABu Dhabi.
They said our RN Licenses are our investment. That is a fact because we always have to give our time and financial resource to have this license to practice. Let it be if its costly just find a way on how to make means of getting that RN badge. In due time we will harvest the wisdom and passion of Nursing. If you think that 4 years in BSN course has ended and youre misery is done then youre wrong.
Nursing is indemand,nowadays UK,Australia,Ireland,NZ,Japan are facing millions of shortage by 2020. In these countries you need to pass their requirements like the ielts and licensing. And there you go you need to invest to earn that Badge of RN to practice.
Review,take exam,voila your license is out!
