Default Saudi requires prometric exam for foreign nurses

The Saudi Council mandates all foreign nurses to pass the Prometric Exam before working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 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

The examination is scheduled Tuesday up to Friday, with a fee of US$90.00. A prometric exam is similar to the licensure exam for nurses given in the Philippines.

Thumbs down Re: Saudi requires prometric exam for foreign nurses

that's a fact,..me and my fellow nurses undergone prometric examination in CLC women's University at Olaya,..the saudi council requires all the foreign nurses to take the exam before working in saudi arabia,..a 70 items examination to be finished within 2 hours,..you must reach the average of 45% for u to pass the exam,..fortunately we pass the examination last august,..but until now our employer did not give us our license,..I dont know if its true but we were the one who pay for that exam and for the processing of the license,..840sr for the exam and 300sr for the license,..expensive right???---hmmmm

Default Re: Saudi requires prometric exam for foreign nurses

share lang po....kasi nabasa ko sa mga ibang post na medyo nahihirapan or medyo may tanong kayo bout ba yon sa mga fee's na nabigay nyo sa mga examination centers kung saan kayo nagtake....pero sa pagkakaalam ko po hindi kayo ang nagbabayad non as long as hindi pa kayo nagwowork kung saan man kayo aapply or kung hindi pa kayo kinuha ng mga employers nyo who provides the exam...kasi isipin mo ba naman db bakit ka magbabayad kung hindi naman tiyak na makakaalis ka nga?...so be wise na lang po tayo.....

kami kasi kasama ng mga kasamahan ko dito rin SA (new/old nurses) dito na kami nagtake ng exam pero wala kaming binayaran kasi sagot lahat ng employer namin...binayaran lang namin processing fee's namin pero bout don sa exam/license wala na yon kasi sagot na nila yon...


SO GOODLUCK NALANG PO SA ATIN LAHAT......
BE WISE ENOUGH!!!!!!!!
GOD/ALLAH BLESS!!!!

SO GOODLUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
