Nursing in Abu Dhabi

Hello everybody,

I have received a job offer as a junior nurse in an Abu Dhabi hospital. A few of my colleagues have gone on to work in the UAE and have said that they are enjoying it. I just wanted to know whether the agency are giving me a fair offer. The pay is around 15000 dirham a month with accommodation paid for. I thought that was very reasonable considering I earn less than half that in the UK, but from looking at other threads I'm not sure if it's enough to live and save some money.

I also wanted to know what nursing is like in AD. It seems like there is a high reliance on foreign nurses, which I would say is also accurate of the NHS, but my colleagues have said some unit's are solely staffed by foreign nurses. I have been to Saudi, and they seem to have a very declasse attitude towards nurses. I don't really want to go to a country where my profession isn't appreciated, even my former colleagues can't seem to give me a straight answer about this.

Cheers for any help

it is a fair offer and lot of professionals are working here where they have good respect. cheers
