Healthcare and Nursing Jobs in United Arab Emirates

Even its name sounds jewel-like: United Arab Emirates. And yes, the three largest cities glitter: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain. UAE has everything: the desert, the sea, hills, big cities. You can dive for pearls, find silence in the desert, climb the hills, be deafened by the world's loudest rockers.

The country is made up of seven Emirates (in alphabetical order): Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain.

The largest Emirate (by size and population) and the wealthiest (to many people's surprise), is Abu Dhabi, not Dubai.

In total, the UAE has a population of about 5.3 million, and estimates vary about how many are expatriates and how many Emirati. The range of estimates show a population of Emiratis being between 11-26% of the total population.

The UAE gained independence from the UK on December 2, 1971, and their national day is celebrated on December 2 each year.
