Healthcare and Nursing Jobs in Saudi Arabia

So how do we describe what a person will find in Saudi Arabia? Mostly it will be an intense learning experience on many fronts: the diseases may be different, the patients come from a different culture, your colleagues are from all over the world. You will have a lot of free time on your hands therefore you will beef up your tennis game, learn to play bridge, participate in the local theatre group, or join a music ensemble. You have to be constantly open to new ideas, to new people and to different ways of doing things. Over and over people tell us about how everything is new and different, and how this energizes them.

What type of personalities like working in Saudi Arabia? Someone who is intellectually curious, who is sociable, who likes to travel, is non-judgmental, and is open to learning about other cultures and other ways of practicing medicine/nursing. Someone who has a tendency to teach at every opportunity will thrive. Finally, and most importantly someone who is confident and optimistic, who has many interests, likes to do new things, and likes to have fun. The people "who make things happen" contribute most to the job, to the hospital community, and to the expatriate community. Strong, self-assured women and men with an non- judgemental demeanour and accepting attitude do particularly well.
