Working In Saudi



Hi All

I was hoping someone who has gone before coule enlighten me on your experiences of working at the King Faisal or National Guard hospitals in Saudi?? I am have had an acceptance from both and am unsure which one to choose. Also any hints about what clothes to take, the best mode of communication back to place of origin and any hints re finances.

THanks for taking the time to reply.

Check out the articles tab. Someone wrote a very interesting article about their experiences there.

I was there in '95...but I didn't work in a civilian hospital. I met a few nurses who did and they seemed to be ok with it (women as 2nd class citizens, etc.) I think they mostly liked the high dollar/tax free income.

Good luck!
