Good day great Nurses and welcome to my blog. This is the first post in a series of a complete guide to nurse registration with the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi. I hope you will stick around and check other posts to be able to grasp full understanding of the procedure for nurse registration before you embark on the journey.

Back to the topic, HAAD recently changed it HAAD requirements for registration for overseas trained nurses but it hasn’t been communicated yet. However this post is based on the new HAAD requirements based on those who processed their registration with HAAD in November/December 2016.
