Hi,
Yes - there are many job and visa processing scams.
If you are offered a job without an interview and are then asked for fees to get the visa - then these are the warning signs of a scam!
Nurses normally get shared accommodation with other nurses.
It is not normal to be offered company accommodation for you and your son and it is not normal to be offered school fees.
Best of luck
Steve

If you want to work in UAE as a nurse you have to first obtain a UAE license, there are 3 types, DHA license for dubai, HAAD license for Abu Dhabi and MOH license for the remaining 5 emirates.

Nobody would consider you without a license. After obtaining the license, you will get plenty of offers, but I believe salaries won't be up to your expectations because most nurses here are indian or philipino and they settle down for lower salaries. There are quite a few hospitals however interested in hiring western nurses, american hospital is one.

Hi most the job description have been offering housing and education supplements?
I don't think you will get any education allowances.

Housing wise, you will either get a total package (as most employees in the medical sector) and arrange it yourself, or stay in the hospital's accommodation.
