Nurses salary are very low here and are not based on anything - they just pay you a salary and thats it. Not too sure about allowances.
Staff Nurse First Level
Basic = QR 5500
Transport allowance = QR 1250
Shift allowance = 10% of basic
Special allowance 10% of basic for ER/DR/OR and some special area
Yearly return Ticket or cash equivalent if desired
45 days paid leave yearly or about 3.5 days accumulation per month of service.. can be converted to cash if desired
40 hours work week (5 days with 8 hour shift)
Free accommodation for bachelors (if overseas contract and married with wife or children in Qatar, you can take the money instead = about 5000 QR/month.
Overtime = my friend usually gets about 2000 Qr monthly just for overtime
I am david's wife..we are from malaysia.
Is the salary scale you gave based on Hamad Hospital?
I've applied for the staff nurse post in ICU of Hamad. Went through the pre-employment test but how long does it take for the interview? Are u working in Hamad?
Wat is the shift hour like? 3 shift is from wat time to wat time? 5 days of work per week including nite duty?
If based on 7 years working experience, how much of basic salary will they give? Is the salary based on races? As I know the canadian nurse usually has higher salary. Is that applicable to hamad?

I heard Arab Saudi can offer better salary . The basic is equivalent to RM10,000. Many nurses from Hospital Johor Bahru working there since the first group explore the opportunities.
I am also from health background but bye.. bye.. MOH. In term of RM i got 20X better than what they can offer me.
If me, with the offer that Qatar can give us, better to stay malaysia, get a degree, and apply for Nurse Manager in malaysia @ overseas.
It is not easy to live here (Qatar) without David & Kids and not worth to leave them behind with the such offer. Normally Malaysian put RM15,000 for oil & gas practisioner as a minimum salary per month. & others sector is RM 10,000.00. OTHERWISE, better to stay home !!

HOPE I CAN HERE FROM YOU NURSES..
I AM OPEN FOR UR SUGGESTIONS AND COMMENTS..
THANK YOU SO MUCH
getting into Hamad hospital takes along time, if you pass all the requirements. maybe if you have connections...i don't really know. but if you come in on a tourist visa, this is good only for 28 days. you have a very short time to look for a good hospital or clinic or company so you can get your visa transferred since I've just heard that now there are no extensions for tourist visas.
....but again I may be wrong coz immigration rules in Qatar change ever so often....
what do you mean with " with tourist visa, this is good only for 28 days? coz as far i can remember, my aunt told me the are procecing my visa for 6 mos stay..whats with 28 day you are talking about oowiwi?
thank you for replying;)
ive already passed my cv in the hr in hamad and they said that they will call me,pero di sinabi kung gano katagal aq mag intay..gano po ba katagal usually?
If your aim is Hammad! This is like one of the Hospital in the whole wide world who offer great amount of money and benefits for Nurses that they will hire...total package usually have various health benefits which are good, allowances properly paid off for ur needs so all in all maybe 9000-12,000QR.But if not Hammad I'd rather say Qatar has one of worst employment system for Nurses,poor salary,the government is not in control for hospitals and other health private institutions who trick employees by changing the contract agreement when ur already here in Qatar and the Ministry of Labor can't do anything about it etc.and there is no basis for experienced whenit comes to salary,maybe little but not compared when ur in Hammad but purely on what came up in agreement between you and the employer. Me I am Registered Nurse here in Qatar.I cam here on a bus.visa and luckily was able to transfer to working status.I am that desperate during that time bcoz the worst nursing system would be in the Philippines I guess?hahha! Anyhow I got 2yrs exp.when I came here, I employ myself to Al Shefa Polyclinic (real life hell) who onyl paid me for 2000QR as basic salary and 500 allowance for the license and 300QR other allowances.,,,we have overtime but the basis computation would be from the basic salary and then,if u file a leave of course, no work no pay policy and if ur sick,u really need to prove them ur about to die so they will give u ur sick leave LOL.A lot f violations from the contract and the employers does not care what happen to you as long as they are earning.I am about to finish my contract to them in 7mos and that would be like my emancipation day from this hell.Though I am coping well coz I got here my brother.I will bid farewell to Qatar for good after the contract and will try my luck to other Countries oz here,there is also NOC policy so u cannot just transfer from any company which is the saddest part.And even if I finished my contract with them they will cancel my visa and I ill be ban for 2yrs...so for the meantime,that's where I plan to apply maybe in UAE anywhere their esp.Abu Dhabi and will try again to Qatar and this time HAMMAD :)
