Demand for Qualified Nurses on the Rise in UAE
January, 2014: It has come to light that since January this year, there has been an increase in the number of advertisement calling for appointment of nurses. The advertising companies are mostly UAE based.
The main advertisers it seems are from Dubai followed by other emirates. Besides the demand for nurses, there is also a noticeable increase in advertisements calling for specialists in internal medicine, gynecology, obstetrics, cardiology, urology, neurology and general medicine, among others.
Among the preferred nationalities for the nursing posts are Filipinos, Indians, Arabic and European. It is widely predicted that in view of the forthcoming Expo 2020, this trend is likely to continue for a long time.
