The Not-So-Quarantined Quarantine

Trying to keep busy while still unsure of when or if I am still moving to Saudi

In limbo

Sitting around and waiting. Waiting and waiting more. This journey to getting a nursing job in Saudi Arabia is taking a lot longer than I expected, and now even longer due to COVID19. I feel like I am waiting in between two worlds. I am in an intermediate state between the United States and theContinue reading “In limbo”

Impatient

I keep looking at my phone for new notifications. I keep waiting for the email from Mumaris to tell me my Prometric exam score. Did I pass? Everytime I get a notification of a new email, I quickly open the app and then am quickly disappointed to find out it is news from Medscape orContinue reading “Impatient”

The Medical Exam

Part of the visa application for a nursing job in Saudi requires a physical by a doctor and lab work. A lot of lab work. And a lot of paperwork. Unfortunately I did not read everything through before going to the doctor. I read a lot of it, so I knew to request a medicalContinue reading “The Medical Exam”

And the exit is coming…

I arrived at work today to discover I am in charge. Again. I have been in charge everyday this month. Even though it is the shortest month of the year. And I was on vacation at the beginning and starting vacation again in a few days. So I am only working seven days in February.Continue reading “And the exit is coming…”

Or even an inexperienced nurse who recently passed her or his NCLEX and has all that information from school and studying still fresh inContinue reading “Prometric Exam: harder than I thought”

Annual Job Performance Evaluation

On Monday, I received my yearly evaluation from my boss. Right before she called me into her office, I was scavenging boxes from the supply guy. Some of the boxes used to ship syringes are very sturdy and small enough to pack books without being too heavy to lift. I get excited when I canContinue reading “Annual Job Performance Evaluation”

My Prometric Exam Number!

Just two days ago, I wrote about waiting for my number and worried how long it will take. Today, I emailed my agency to get an idea of a time frame so I can figure out my living arrangements until I leave for Saudi. As I was about to head out to the gym, IContinue reading “My Prometric Exam Number!”

Places to visit while living abroad

The biggest reason I want the chance to work in the Middle East is for the experience. The second reason is for the travel opportunities! I will be closer to Africa and Asia and a lot of countries I still want to explore! I am still months away from moving, and then I have toContinue reading “Places to visit while living abroad”

Official Job Offer!

Wow I thought my “job offer” post a few months okay was official, but it was not since it did not include a contract. My last entry was about the hospital requiring proof of my nursing experience as a travel nurse. I received an letter from RN Network only! Cross Country TravCorp refused and theContinue reading “Official Job Offer!”
