Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) on Thursday held an open recruitment day for Qatar-based graduate nurses.
Thousands of candidates attended the event at Bayt al-Diyafah in Hamad bin Khalifa Medical City where the candidates were able to attend an information session as well as fill out application forms, HMC said in a tweet.
In an earlier release, HMC said it is looking to recruit graduate midwives and nurses from all specialties who are currently living in Qatar.
To be considered for employment, candidates must have:
BSc Nursing with a minimum of two years of appropriate work experience; Valid Qatar ID (QID); Valid Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners (QCHP) credentials and have passed the prometric examination.
Additionally they should be able to produce a no objection certificate (NOC), or (an undertaking mentioning) the ability to obtain one.
Only candidates meeting the above criteria will be considered, the statement said.
The corporation held interactive sessions for the candidates to provide them with information about available roles.
There are currently more than 9,000 nurses and midwives working at HMC in a range of roles. Newly-recruited nurses will cover a variety of specialties, supporting the current nursing and midwifery workforce.
“Nurses are at the frontline of delivering safe and compassionate care to our patients and they bring experience and skills that make a positive difference to the diverse population groups we care for. As HMC continues to expand its facilities and services, we welcome qualified and committed people to join our nursing teams,” said Dr. Nicola Ryley, HMC’s Chief Nursing Officer.
