If you apply directly with DOHMS/DHA (the health regulation/funding arm of the government), I am not sure how housing goes with them. I think they get a slight stipend but would have to research it.

Working outside of the US is truly not for everyone. I also worked in Saudi for 14 months in an ER, but then I had done travel nursing for almost 7 years in the States so was very familiar with "different ways" of doing things. You really have to be VERY flexible and realize that many standards are not comparable to US, you will work with some absolutely fantastic docs and others you wonder what Walmart they bought their medical license from.

I thought after I left Saudi I would never come back to this part of the world to do nursing. But after being home for less than a year, I am back - though doing something totally different than before - no patient care!! I do miss the blood, guts and gore!!

If you need more help, just PM me!! Good Luck.
I am just curious if in the last year you have been to UAE, or close. I really appreciate your post! Jeff Hamm

Default hi

Hi,

There is no issue in getting an apartment in dubai. You will have to do leg work to get it within the budget you have set.

There is no need to invest in license or car depending on where you live and where the work place is. I have been here for 8 months and have not even thought of a license. I took the apartment keeping work place and public transportation in mind, which is good one.

Cant suggest about american tax laws. Healthcare is very expensive in dubai and I believe nurses would thus be paid well. If you are getting 10K or more, there is no issue in spending some time in dubai.

Rgds,
rishab

1. How easy is it to find a furnished apartment in the city.
2. How necessary is a car. Can I rely solely on public transportation to get to work and the market.
3. Do I have to pay taxes in the USA on money earned in Dubai.
4.Can anyone recommend a reputable Nurse recruitment agency. I have researched so many of them and they all seem like they offer the same benefits. Does anyone know if one agency is preferred to another.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
