Ask a Travel Nurse: Travel jobs in Saudi Arabia?

Ask a Travel Nurse Question:

I’m thinking of taking a travel job in Saudi Arabia. Has anyone been there on assignment? Any tips?

Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:

I have not been overseas, but perhaps some of our readers have. However, your question should also be posted on the travel nursing forums where I am sure you can find someone (or someone who knows someone) that has traveled to the Middle East.

Some good travel nurse forums can be found at ultimatenurse.com, allnurses.com, and the Delphi forum for traveling professionals (go to delphiforums.com, look for the box on the right that says “Explore existing forums,” type in “travel nursing” and the top result is a group called Travel Nurses and Therapists with over half a million members).

Pan Travelers is also another good site with a forum. They have a free section and also a portion where there is a charge to access that information.

You can also join Healthcare Travelbook (healthcaretravelbook.com), which is a sort of Facebook style place for travelers, which also has a forum.

Finally, I just went to Yahoo and typed “Saudi Nurses” and found this gem:

Hope this helps :-)

About the Author:

Hello everyone. I’m a travel nurse originally from Ohio who graduated in 1993 from Mount Carmel School of Nursing in Columbus. I completed a critical care fellowship at Riverside Methodist Hospital in 1994 and started traveling in that specialty a year later. My first travel assignment was in Maui and since that time I have completed over thirty travel contracts, worked with several different travel agencies, and currently hold about a half dozen nursing licenses in different states. Last year I wrote a book entitled, Travel Nurse’s Bible (A Guide to Everything on Travel Nursing), which can be found at TravelNursesBible.com. I am currently blogging on this site and writing a monthly column in Healthcare Traveler Magazine. I am presently on assignment in Phoenix, AZ and travel anywhere from six to eleven months of the year.
