Obtaining A Nursing License in Qatar

By JCB50

What do you need?

  1. QCHP Account. If you already have one, log in to https://reg.qchp.org.qa/en/_layouts/LogIn.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fen%2f_layouts%2fAuthenticate.aspx%3fSource=%2Fen%2FPages%2Fdefault%2Easpx. If none, click this link to register: https://reg.qchp.org.qa/en/_layouts/SCH_Registration/SignUp_NewUser.aspx
  2. All your nursing credentials (I will elaborate this one later)
  3. Valid QID and Passport
  4. Your company’s medical institution license

Once you created your QCHP account, you need to Apply for Evaluation first. Choose your nursing scope: Registered General Nurse if you have NO Break of Practice (BoP). Nurse Trainee if WITH Break of Practice (BoP).

NOTE: If you have more than 10 years of BoP, you will not be eligible to apply for license.

  4. Work Experience Certificates (as a Nurse)
  5. Licensing Exam or Medical License (PRC if from Philippines and/or other licenses obtained from other country)
  6. Primary Source Verification Report (Dataflow) Tip: Apply for Dataflow at least a month before you Apply for Evaluation to save time. It usually takes 2 to 5 weeks before your dataflow report is released.

Once you finished uploading the documents and ready to submit your application, you will be required to pay 100QR. Your employer will approve your application, then it will be under process with QCHP. You will receive a comment from QCHP Evaluation Officer:

They will ask for a Training Supervision Letter (attachment: QCHP License of the RGN who will supervise you) and NOC to undergo training from your employer. Once you have provided the necessary documents, they will review and hopefully your application will be approved.
  2. Approved. If you have provided everything they needed and passed their evaluation, you will receive the MoI Letter Report and Evaluation Certificate.These documents will be needed for Application for Licensing. 

Before starting the Application for Licensing, ensure that you have the following documents:

  6. Confirmation that your Certificate of Good Standing (CoGS) has been received by QCHP Note: Certificate of Good Standing (CoGS) should be sent directly from Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC) to Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioner (QCHP).

Hello, I have graduated BSN 2007 and my last experience in the hospital was 2010. I am currently working as a private nurse here in Doha without qchp license since it is not required under private nursing. Does it mean I am not eligible for license even under nurse trainee? Your insights will be highly appreciated.
