    Not sure about new grad LPN. I'm a 1 year accelerated BSN grad. Unfortunately, Health Authority Abu Dhabi, Dubai Health Authority, and virtually all nursing boards in the Middle East require at least 2 years of schooling, regardless of years of experience in order to get licensed. It's a shame because they're missing out on some great nurses. I know this because I tried to apply at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi and was told HAAD would not recognize my credentials--even with many years of cardiac critical care experience under my belt. The same with King Faisal Specialty in Riyadh. Gonna try Australia, NZ, and Singapore. All the best to you.

    Not as an LPN. They are looking for RNs with years of recent experience

    You are lucky if you get good one as they prefer someone with experience 1 yr minimum. I have also heard they prefer candidates who are available in the country over virtual communication.

    Good Luck!!
