at Rensmee14 - No need tp go back to the Philippines you cant get your lacking experience here. Just make sure your employer is a licensed facility. Now QCHP is requiring that you will work under a licensed practitioner depending on the recommendation if 3, 6, or 12 months training. Dataflow is a verificcation method. It will check if your documents is true and not fabricated.

@ akhildeva25 - I see that you are husband sponsor. no problem you can transfer anyware but the discretion to approved your transfer relies on your primary employer. Just make a reasonable compromise with them so that they will approve your transfer of workplace.

@Rensmee14, definitely you can!

Last January 2016, there's a new law of QCHP which states that those who have at least 1 year valid WORKING experience as a NURSE in the Philippines can apply for license as a general scope nurse here right away, granted that his/her mother/father/husband/wife has a residence permit here.

Just attached your parent/spouse's Qatar ID and your birth certificate in your application for evaluation at the QCHP website, at the additional information page.

To those who have 0 experience in the Philippines, you need to apply for evaluation as a NURSE TRAINEE first and then apply for change scope of work from NURSE TRAINEE to GENERAL SCOPE NURSE after 1 year of training.

All of these does not apply to those who doesn't have parents/spouse here who has resident permit, regardless of the visa whether it be working/family/business etc.

Regarding your dataflow, apply ASAP and start looking for an employer so you can start applying for evaluation and just attached your dataflow receipt so they will know that it is now under process. But during the application for licensing stage, you should attach your dataflow certificate/result.

Hello everyone! Could anyone help me? i am currently now in Doha as family visa, i am planning to apply here as a nurse, but my working experience in hospital setting is 1 yr and 8mos in the Philippines and 7mos certificate as Volunteer Nurse in Philippine Red Cross.I have already done my Prometric, but still no Dataflow.

My question is, Is it possible for me to get a dataflow here? and have a license here in Qatar? even though my work experience as staff nurse is below 2years? could i find a job here even in Polyclinic? or do i need to go back to Philippines to complete my 2years experience just to have work here?

please reply, Thank you so much!

@ avidee - if your evaluation was completed. were you able to receive a evaluation passing certificate? I yes, do not worry. now continue serching for an employer that will provide you nurse visa and that employer should have a licensed facility. then you can transfer your workplace to that new employer.

By me.abunazeer• 5 months 2 weeks ago.
me.abunazeer

@ marshmallow18 - If your evaluation was completed you will be able to receive an evaluation paasing certificate and CID arabic letter. Now what I can suggest is to go to SCH on monday (open day) with your PRO to discuss the matter. From what I understand, nurse trainee and volunteer is not accepted.. the decision making as a staff nurse and as a trainee or volunteer is not the same. you are limited therefore it is not accepted. If they will require you training, you can receive the guidelines in your email sent by SCH.

@me.abunazeer or anyone please help me.

I forgot to mention my additional dataflow for work experience as nurse trainee is approved/ verified/ completed already. Also, does a certificate of good standing will be needed anytime soon? Please tell me the process. I dont know how. & is there other requirements i should be expecting after evaluation? I just want to be prepared, i've been processing since april until now so i feel like i have been wasting so much time because of all the long processing time. Thank you again!!

Hello everyone! Good day! My situation now is i think a bit complicated. Im done with prometric & dataflow. I applied for evaluation under my possible employer. Then the qchp sent it back asking for more experience because of 1 year & 10 months only, i knew they needed 2 yrs. I asked my emoloyer what to do & told me to just submit it again & i did then they approved it & it was under process again. I actually had other work experience that i wasnt able to had it dataflow because a lot of employers was telling me that work experience as nurse trainee is not qualified with dataflow. I did research & saw that it is allowed & recently knew that there is an office of dataflow so i went there to confirm. Then the dataflow personnel gladly accepted my other experience as nurse trainee which was 4 months & said that it is allowed, only volunteer is not considered. So i had that 4 months processed so that my experience would be total of 2 yrs & 2 months (i actually have another 5 months but it is not allowed already because it was more than 3 yrs ago) Then i was hoping that qchp wont make a final decision so that i could attach my additional 4 months. Unfortunately, qchp made a decision that i lack the experience to apply again & instructed to change my scope from general scope nurse to nurse trainee & attach a copy of license of a nurse that will supervise me. So i went to my employer, they gave me a copy, i followed the qchp's instruction then i wrote in the comment that i have an additional experience that is in process with dataflow & that i attached a scanned copy of the dataflow receipt. I was hoping that they might consider it. My qchp evaluation was under process again.

After waiting for a month the qchp sent a text message & an email that my evaluation is completed. I checked my qchp account & was completed but there was no comment from the evaluator whether how many months i will go under training? I called my employer & talked to the medical director & told me that its okay already that they will call me back after eid to start my medical exams, blood works, etc... i asked if the report said anything about training for how many months? The medical director said, no..it was not mentioned. It is okay.

My question here is, will i go for training or will i be working as nurse already? (how will i know if i will go under training as nurse trainee & for how long) Or if it means that the qchp evaluator considered my additional attachment & did not require training for me anymore?

I have not seen my final report yet with the employer, will get it this week. But for now i really want to hear opinions because i am confused & i dont know what to expect. I checked my qchp account & the Current Status says Evaluation Completed. Then i click on the last row, the Comments. There are no comments from the qchp evaluator. I also tried clicking the highlightened word Evaluation Completed then a box appeared

Evaluation Decision: Pending for Evaluations documents

Evaluation Comments: --(blank)--

Attachments: --(blank)--

Is that something i should worry about? Or does it mean nothing? Or if its for the next steps?

A big Thank You! For responding to this. I really need enlightenment. I dont know any nurse here so i really dont know the process & what to really expect. My employer is nice but it has been giving me a hard time to communicate with them, i get different answers from their staffs who talk to me & came to a point when i asked what to do, the staff told me.."i dont know. What to do next after that?" It got me worried & disappointed for them not knowing the process properly.

By me.abunazeer• 7 months 3 weeks ago.
me.abunazeer

@ By Nurse09 Yes, that is correct. you cannot proceed to the next step since you have lacking documents. now, you can upload it yourself, just open your account and upload the required documents. make sure after uploading a document always click save before proceeding to the next section. then submit it once your done. then inform your employer that you have submitted your documents and you see in your status "pending employer approval" hope this helps.

By Nurse09• 7 months 4 weeks ago.
Nurse09

@abunazeer thank you for your very informative response. Sir so this means that Iam not yet completed my stage 1 and do i need to apply for evaluation again? Ive been sending email to my employer asking what to do after they asked for my prc lic and dataflow report but I haven't heard anything from them. Thankyou sir

By me.abunazeer• 8 months 9 hours ago.
me.abunazeer

@ Nurse09 - i am assuming that your application for evaluation was sent back because of a lacking document? no need to worry, chillax.. just provide the requested document by your employer and they will resubmit your application. Always check your account and ffup your employer regarding the status of your application because some employers works like a turtle.

By me.abunazeer• 8 months 9 hours ago.
me.abunazeer

@ djoanonymous - if that is the case where your previous employer cannot be reached, the MOPH may invite you for an interview and there you can explain the reason why it is unreacheable. after that they will require you to reverify in dataflow. dataflow will instruct you to provide them updated certificate with updated contact number. its a long journey but you can reach there in the end. hope this help.

By me.abunazeer• 8 months 9 hours ago.
me.abunazeer

@ rodel - your experience here in Qatar in not valid because you are not a registered health practitioner. Since you passed the prometric and completed the dataflow and the project was completed, try to secure NOC and look for a company with a licensed facility to start processing your evaluation. you can use your 5 years experience since it was the one verified by dataflow group.

By me.abunazeer• 8 months 9 hours ago.
me.abunazeer

@ tnythms - you can apply for evaluation granting you have a potential employer with a license facility that you can use. The process is like this, once you uploaded and submitted the required documents during the evaluation stage, the potential will approve that. after the approval of the employer, it is by then processed by QCHP. Hops this helps and sorry for my late reply.

Hi everyone I am applying for a nurse position in Hamad. I just thought I completed my stage 1 evaluation but the evaluator has a comment that it was pending evaluation of document. They told me to verify my Philippine license. I asked my employer what to do but they only asked for my license and dataflow report. I dont know what to do. Do I need to reapply for Dataflow for my Philippine license? Or Do I have to wait for my employer response? Thankyou

By djoanonymous• 8 months 2 weeks ago.
djoanonymous

hi fellow nurses. I would just like to know what is the process in the QCHP evaluation. I mean, is it like the dataflow, verifying all the credentials submitted? Because I might be having a problem, the contact number I put in the previous employer is not being used anymore? Would this cause an inelligibility for me?although, my dataflow is already completed and verified and I did uploaded that report in my evaluation application. Im worried that this is the reason that my evaluation is taking too long to process.

please help

Hello rodel, I'm afraid to tell you that your experience will no longer be considered valid since you/ your company did not register with the SCH. In order to validate your experience even as a trainee, registering with the SCH is mandatory. Please do find out more if you can directly with SCH on this matter.

All the best!!

@ otakuseiyuu - Based on the QCHP flow chart, dataflow first before taking the exam. but you not a problem otherwise. Your 2012 to 2014 nurse assistant will not be credit as nurse experience. If you have work in Saudi as a nurse, then i presumed that you have registered in Saudi Commission for Health Specialties so that you can use that. but still you lack the required experience to get the license here in Qatar. A minimum of 2 years is required. I hope this will help.

By me.abunazeer• 9 months 4 days ago.

@ jkjina749@gmail.com - No it will not affect. do not worry about your evaluation. There is an option to "apply to change place of work" so, just transfer it with your new employer during the licensing stage.

i would just like to clarify some things. So for me to start my career as a nurse in Qatar, I need to find an employer first so that they can assist me with the process? Is it exam first before dataflow? Or dataflow from employer then exam? And will I have a problem with my dataflow if ever? Because I started working as nurse assistant from 2012 to 2014. Then by august 2014 to january 2015 i am classified as clinic nurse from our clinic since i just passed the NLE last may 2014. Then by march 2015 I started working in Saudi as Staff Nurse. Thank you for helping clear things up.

@djoanonymous - hello kabayan,

evaluation 25 working days

licensing 20 working days

license renewal 15 working days

change place of work 15 working days

certificate of good standing 25 working days.

there are factors that can delay the processing as @syedminhaj explained. Hope this help.

Evaluation usually takes a month's time. But may take longer now due to Ramadan & festive holidays approaching. You should have a Qatar ID in order to apply for a Nurse licence.

@ tosh1925 - granting that you got all the required documents and experience, you will be able to get your license here around 4 to 6 months.

By me.abunazeer• 10 months 2 weeks ago.
me.abunazeer

@ elleonnoraa - our premise is a licensed health care practitioner should only work to a licensed health care facility. therefore, QCHP will not approved your application. I suggest you find another company that has a licensed facility and that can give you a nurse visa. I hope this helps.

By me.abunazeer• 10 months 2 weeks ago.

@ iamRj - please contact your focal point so that they can change your designation.

@ avidee - to avoid complications in your application as a nurse here in Qatar, a minimum of 2 years must be complied. less than the required years will give you a headache. another work through is try to verify other nursing related experiences. if they accept or not, its up to the QCHP evaluators if they will put you under nurse trainee. hope this helps

By me.abunazeer• 10 months 2 weeks ago.
me.abunazeer

@ jefrybotat - if the dataflow group is unable to verify your employment in Libya because of the prevailing issues there, try to contact your friends who is still working their and try to get update regarding how the dataflow group is able to reached your HR so that they can verify your employment there. hope this helps.

By me.abunazeer• 10 months 2 weeks ago.
me.abunazeer

@ Al Jalillah Jannat - Yes it is normal that they exceed the 20 working days waiting period. especially if the processing fall under the holy month of ramadan where working hours are being shortened. SCH opens from 8:30am to 12:30 pm only. so expect delays during this month. If you have received confirmation that you have completed the licensing phase. no need to contact your focal point. just login to your QCHP account and you can view your elicense there. no physical card will be issued anymore. Sorry for the late reply.

Good day!

I've completed my dataflow and passed qatar prometric exam. I was locally hired here as a site nurse. Their healthcare facility (first aid unit) is not yet licensed / registered in MOPH so that's why I am also not yet registered in QCHP because one of their registration requirements is to have a licensed health care facility. All of my documents are ready except for ILS training. My visa is on process and was submitted just today. Any advise from site nurses / experts? and also do i need to apply for QCHP evaluation even if i have completed my dataflow? thanks!

Hello me.abunazeer, I log on to my registration application and my license application is still under process by SCH. Its already 21 days now since my employer submitted my application via QCHP webpage. I was told that it only takes around 20 working days before evaluation officer respond via QCHP webpage that an application is completed and license card can be collected. Is it normal that they exceeded the 20 days waiting period? Should I follow up my application to my focal point/employer if my license is already issued or not? or visit SCH regarding the status of my application? Thank you, hoping for your reply.

@prasobhmn - that will be a big problem. trust me. your company needs to transfer your visa. they can apply for you in the ministry of interior. Takes 1-2 weeks processing.

@NILA25 - First of all, in order for you to work as a practicing nurse in Qatar, you need to comply with the state requirements and that is you need to have a valid license to practice here in Qatar. Second, 10 months paid experience? chances are, the institution who issued that certificated from the Philippines will be blacklisted, all applicants from that institution can no longer apply and practice their profession as a nurse for that reason.

@mischa_veron: are those work experience related to nursing profession? work experience means you are employed, not a volunteer. Based on the data you provided, your accumulated work experience is around 8 years if my math is correct. Dataflow is the process of verifying your documents if its true and correct. If they found out any falsification of documents or the institution deliberately provided misleading information, you and your institution will be blacklisted in all GCC countries. You need to provide everything in your CV. I think they will ask for extra charge per additional employer. Please check with dataflow with this one.

@Johndp: SCH require at least 2 years work experience. If there is any vacancy well she definitely can get a job granting she can fulfill all needed requirement. Recruitment agency from India can help you regarding this matter as they are knowledgeable to the current need of nurses especially for females. A lot of Female Indian here are seeking for local recruitment but I am not aware with regards to the current need and demand.

@mrs.adlao: I suggest you start processing your evaluation. Create an account here, sign up for new applicant: https://reg.qchp.org.qa/en/_layouts/LogIn.aspx then upload the required documents. Don't waste your time. SCH is the only authority who can tell you that you can work as a nurse trainee. Follow their recommendation. Nurse Visa is a requirement during your application for you to practice as a nurse here in Qatar. Yes you may have residence visa but the category must be a nurse

to verify licensed health facility:

Thanks for the quick response! I have a residence visa. The clinic is not providing the visa for me. I had a dialysis training back in Phil but i dont think SCH would consider it as work experience. I'm not sure if the clinic has a licensed nurse, but maybe they do. I'm starting as a nurse trainee since i dont qualify under the general scope category yet.

By me.abunazeer• 1 year 10 months ago.
me.abunazeer

@mrs.adlao: first, what visa will they give you? if nurse visa, no problem. 2nd, do you have a practicing licensed nurse working in that Dental Clinic? If they have, no problem. What concerns me is your lack of work experience. Therefore, the SCH will mandate you to undergo a training directly supervised by a licensed nurse and a provisional license will be issued for you. After completing the recommended number of months/ year, you can apply for re-evaluation where you will provide a clinical attachment as a proof of your training and that is the time where you can process your General Scope Nurse application.

By mrs.adlao• 1 year 10 months ago.
mrs.adlao

@me.abunazeer: sir, hope you can help me understand. im a licensed nurse in philippines but no work experience in any hospital or clinic yet. im here in qatar and will work in a dental clinic for the meantime as a trainee. Do you have an idea if working in a dental clinic will be considered as work exeperience when i apply for evaluation as a general scope nurse when the right time comes? Thanks.

@kittypie Its my pleasure to help our fellow kababayan. That's great that you have completed your dataflow and prometric exam but wait there's more. :) To answer your question, Yes, with the help of your employer. From what I understand, you need at least 2 years work experience. However, if your employer has a licensed nurse on deck, no need to worry. during the evaluation, if SCH thinks your experience is not enough to qualify, they will give you a provisional license where you need to work directly supervised by a licensed nurse. after you completed their requirements, you can apply for re-evaluation and get the desired license you needed.

By kittypie• 1 year 10 months ago.

@me.abunazeer your posts are very informative. thank you so much. I have one question, and I hope you could see my comment. I have 1 year and 3 months clinical experience and have been working for 5 months now in a private clinic here in Qatar. I have finished prometric and dataflow. Is it possible for me to pass the evaluation stage with the help of my employer?

Thank you in advance. :)

By me.abunazeer• 1 year 10 months ago.
me.abunazeer

Your experience is legit. You are working as a Company Nurse form Jan 2013 - December 2014. It would mean almost 2 years of recent experience. by definition, a "break of practice (BOP)" is a period of time during which a health practitioner has not been working in their scope of practice and ongoing part-time work (of any amount) is not considered to constitute a break in practice. in the event that any applicant has taken a break from practice.

10 years = not eligible for registration.

Therefore, based on the information you provided, I can say that you are eligible for registration. Make sure the company that you are working with has a licensed medical facility and they will issue a nurse visa so that your application will run smoothly.

I hope this helps...

@me.abunazeer-First of all thank you for all of your informative comments to our fellow kababayan I learned a lot. May I know if this is consider as a break in practice I worked in a hospital last Jan,2010-Nov.2012, then worked as a company nurse from January 2013 to December 2014, now currently I am a company nurse here in qatar since March 2015, but our clinic was still on processing of applying for its license. Do they accept Company nurse experience and not considered as a break in practice?Thank you in advance

By me.abunazeer• 1 year 12 months ago.
me.abunazeer

@Al Jalilah Jannat - First, your COGS must be addressed directly to SCH. Attachment from you will make it invalid. 2nd, if you have complete documents upon submission processing would not take much time. My evaluation only took 3 working days after submission. Your break of practice concerns me, I believe you cannot get a nurse license immediately and you need to work under the supervision of a licensed nurse. Hope this info will help.

Hello, I'm @ evaluation stage, when I checked online it says completed but result pending evaluation of documents. I did not attach a COGS from PRC yet, I recently ask my relative to process it on behalf of me. I have a 2+ yrs break of practice due to motherhood. It took 1 month for the SCH to complete my evaluation plus more than 2 wks now pending evaluation of documents. My question is why it took them too long to decide for my papers is it because I did not send a COGS from PRC yet? I'm confuse because I thought COGS is submitted during licensing stage and not during evaluation stage so I recently request to PRC only. But SCH they not told to send a COGS they only contact my employer to send a new photo. Does COGS must be sent during evaluation stage or licensing stage? Is it because I did not send a COGS thats why my evaluation result is pending Or is it because of my break of practice the reason for result delay? Thanks.

By me.abunazeer• 2 years 7 months ago.
me.abunazeer

@renya - If I am not mistaken, 1 year of continuous experience will qualify you to get a license here...and when I applied for evaluation last June 2012, my last hospital experience was Sept. 2011, If my math is correct that is 9 months :) so your 7 months is acceptable (fingers crossed) :)

By me.abunazeer• 2 years 7 months ago.
me.abunazeer

@gayle016 - I am a kabayan for your info :) anyways, you really need to have a certificate that you underwent for a training under a licensed nurse. it was very clear in your evaluation result that you were rejected because you are lack some required experience. Now, one of my colleagues required experience is now completed. Our company doctor made a request letter to re-evaluate him to get a license here in Qatar in compliance to SCH provisions.

@pjips - first congratulations for passing the exam. To get a police clearance you need to fill up a form. much better you coordinate with your company PRO so that s/he can assist you. 2 years ago processing for a police clearance is just a breeze. but now they are requiring some papers from immigration so much better you coordinate with your PRO. You can visit CID going Shaliya Road for inquiries how to obtain police clearance.

By me.abunazeer• 3 years 1 month ago.

@gayle016 - in that case, have faith and pray, "ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened for you," You need to find an employer with licensed facility and you must work under the supervision of a licensed nurse. after completion just submit any proof such as letter from the company, attached schedule, etc. then re-apply for re-evaluation.

By me.abunazeer• 3 years 1 month ago.

@sheilam - from my experience, my application for evaluation was rejected that time because the facility i gave them was not found in their system. make sure that the company is really processing their license because some employer are good in giving false reassurance.

if you plan to take prometric exam, select "nurse specialist" - then pay $200 online thru credit card... it is a 70item exam... you need to correctly answer at least half of it for you to pass... the result is valid for 3 years....
