Saudi Arabia Requires New Exam for Foreign Nurses

nursing exam The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) reported that the Saudi government is now requiring all foreign nurses, including Filipinos, to pass the Prometric Exam prior to their employment.

A Prometric exam is similar to the nursing licensure exam for nurses in the Philippines. The examination is scheduled Tuesday until Friday, with a fee of $90.

In the Philippines, the accredited testing center is THOMSON PROMETRIC, Ateneo Professional Schools, 130 H. Dela Costa St., Salcedo Village, Makati City. Telephone No.: (632) 892-0383, Website:   http://www.prometric.com.

Local recruitment industry leaders are worried that the imposition of the new requirement would lead to the reduction in the number of Filipino nurses hired in Saudi Arabia.

According to POEA, more than 130,000 nurses have left the country for abroad from 1992 to 2007.

Saudi Arabia is among the biggest employers of Filipino nurses, including those who were not fortunate enough to pass the board.
