Sidra Offer Clinical Nurse

I have been offered a clinical nurse post n Sidra. Just want to ask what is the status of the hospital whether it is still under construction or nearly finished. I will be working in one of the intensive care unit and is wondering if the unit or wards are already set up.

Congratulations.
Which ICU will you be in? I got offered a job in picu (cardiac) a while back. I'm not committed to going yet as there have been so many false starts with an opening date I won't go till I know it's up and running.

Recently got a job as sonographer at Sidra Medical but they could not match salary in Australia. The offer was well below expectation.

oh dear!

Got the offer last Feb as NICU clinical nurse but having second thoughts.. The basic salary is just the same with what I'm earning at the moment plus they changed the benefit status to single....so disappointed..imagine i waited for almost 3 years with only this? I don't know if they will accept negotiation for base salary increase and family status..

I see. You can try asking for married visa that is possible because they are desperate for staff but im not sure wifh salary. The allowance for married viisa will bring the figures up anyway.

I see. Thats not good. You can definitely ask and bargain for a married visa but not sure with salary. The are desperate for staff so let them know you are keen on the job but would like to bring your family to come over with you. Did you apply direct with Sidra or through an agent?

Hi, I am considering  one of the child life specialist positions with Sidra. I was told that only outpatient clinics are open at this time and likely to be that way until next year.  Does anyone know the location of this hospital, is it a long commute from where they situate your accommodations? Big decision!

It is a big decision. It's one of the biggest decision I have made so far. But I'm taking one step at a time and at the moment I am focusing on my prometric exam. I am not sure the location of Sidra but it is in Education City Al Garrafa, Al Rayyan. I was told by my agency that before the year ends they need staff on board. The housing for staff  i think is called Doha Sidra Village. You can google it. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I will try to negotiate re: family visa. I applied direct with Sidra 3 yrs ago and was selected but only last Feb they gave the offer..

Hi there. I have been looking at sample questions online but not a lot there. I have seen sone sample tests on youtube under Fundamentals of Nursing All the best and good luck as well

Thanx I have been looking on RNPADIA.COM. com has a lot of samples  too.

Ok tnx will look into that. Hope we pass this exam. Are you moving to Qatar with your
family?

Ya hope I pass I have put in a lot of hours and money.Missing my hubby too cause am always in the library or on computer.
No am going solo!!! My kids are grown up though my baby still needs me ,but sh can manage on her own.My hubby is not interested we moved once from Africa now he is happy here. Its a bold decision.
Ho about you are taking your family?

Yes I am hoping to take them as i have been offered a family visa. I have 3 kids below 12 its complicated esp looking for school place but hopefully everything will be sorted in due time

Yes you will be sorted.You have a visa already that's a big step. I bet the kids are excited.

Thank you dor the kind words. I was hoping we could chat privately but it seems it is disabled on your side.

Hey folk, don't take any housing benefits less than 9000 riyals per month and salary at least 14000

They are offering crap now compared to 3 years ago so if you want to work along side your colleuge who makes twice as much and does half the work...

Thanks for the advice.

Hi mummy grace, im a newly joined staff in sidra , as analyst, and yes i can confirm that the hosp will soon be launch next year, they really are serious in hiring clinical staffs as we have a lot of newly onboarded nurses and physicians in preparation for its launch next year

Accomodation for families are situated just nearby the Hospital itself and they provide a shuttle bus to take you from accomodation to hospital and back. (Though they will deduct you 700-800ryals for that)
The hospital is almost ready and set up , with world class medical equipment.

Hi ma’am, getting school for your kids in Qatar is not a problem in as much u have a standard job. Good luck

Hi,
I'm also a midwife preparing to relocate to Qatar.  Have you relocated? What is it like working for sidra?

Hi,
I too am looking at applying and would like to hear from anyone's experiences of working as a midwife in Qatar.

Thanks

Hi there sorry for the late reply. I did not pursue my application with Sidra for personal reasons.
Are you all set to leave for Qatar?  Where are you from?

Hi there. Sorry for the late reply. I am a nicu nurse. I applied but did not push through with my application for Sidra due to personal reasons
But I know someone who has relocated there last month with her family and she is happy. Just make sure you are happy with the terms in your contract in case you proceed with applying
Good luck!
