Making the Move: UAE to the USA

Are you a nurse ready to start an adventure of a life-time in the USA? Read our top 3 reasons why you should swap the UAE for the USA!

With the increasing demand for nurses in America, experts are forecasting a major nurse shortage and are estimating that an extra 1.2 million nurses will be needed by 2020. Not only does this mean the USA is bursting with opportunities for nurses but it also means that nurses in the US are guaranteed job security for years to come. On top of this, US hospitals are also giving nurses more authority in the workplace, meaning that RN's are not only given their time to shine in the USA but they are also continuously encouraged to use, share and expand their knowledge.

In addition to having great career opportunities, US-RN's have access to great public services and a higher standard of living. The cost of renting a house in the USA is much cheaper than the cost of renting an apartment in the UAE and with housing at an affordable price in the USA, it’s more realistic than you might think to buy your own home. 

The USA would also be the land of opportunity for your family. Everyone in the USA is entitled to free education which means that any children you have or any children that are born whilst you are in the USA, will have free access to the best education in the world. 

Beyond all of this, every culture, every language, and every custom can be found in the USA and it's this that makes the land of opportunity a richer and more exciting place for yout to live and grow! 

Did you know that the USA is in the top 3 highest paying countries for registered nurses? The average monthly salary for a nurse in the USA is 5,660 USD. Taking in to account that the monthly salary for a nurse in the UAE is 8,500 DH (the equivalent of approximately 2,310 USD), it is hard to ignore the financial benefits of moving to the USA. 

Not only could you earn more in the USA, you could also have more free time to explore what the beautiful country has to offer. Nurses in America typically work a 40 hour week, this is compared to the mandatory 48 hour week that RN's are expected to work in the UAE! 

The benefits of working as a nurse in a USA hospital don’t just stop here. According to a Gallup poll in 2016, Nursing was voted the most trusted profession in the US for the 15th year in a row. A statistic that would make anyone feel appreciated and proud to be a nurse in the USA!

Want to spend time in the  desert? There's Phoenix or Las Vegas. Like long, cold winters? There are several states for you. Forests, farms, mountain tops, beaches, bustling cities? Check! 

The US has a world's worth of climate and geographic variety in one country making it one of the best countries in the world to explore.
