Default Nursing Interview

Hiya I am a 26 year old female from the UK looking to move to Abu Dhabi this year. I was told about this forum by a friend who is moving to Dubai soon (hiya!!) so thought I'd check it out.

I have an interview for a staff nurse position coming up and am soo nervous as I know that I really want it and tend to get really flustered in interviews. Are there any nurses out there with any tips on what I might be asked? Its a telephone interview and I've been told it should only last 15-20 minutes.

Thank-You

Hi

Im not a nurse but an OT and am going to be having an interview soon. Were there any general questions that might help me? did you also have to sit a HAAD exam?

Thanks

Hi

The interview was honestly no different to any I've had here in the uk. A bit about my experience, some scenarios etc.
Nurses from uk and other English speaking countries don't need HAAD exam, I'd assume it's the same for OTs.
Good luck

Hi there! I'm also a nurse considering a move to dubai soon! I have 6 years nicu experience and have noo idea where to even start in the job seeking process!! Anyone know of some good recruitment agencies? Did you just apply directly with the hospital? Do I need to take any exams through the ministry of health to work in uae? Also, anyone with similar amt of experience and in a specialty area thatcan give me an idea of the amount of money they were offered? From what I've read, I should expect a significant cut in pay in Dubai. Any info would be of great help!!

Thanks!

How's everyone going with applications and offers? I've just applied for a specialist unit manager role, which was advertised thru a UK agency. I've 'demanded' a higher base than what they have initially advertised (it did say negotiable) so I'm interested to see if I get an interview. I'm interested to hear a PP mention the lower than expected standard of healthcare. Is it poor nursing/medical standards, or poor facilities!
