Filipinos and Indians Dominate Nursing Profession in UAE

A research conducted by the association of nurses in the United Arab Emirates showed that Filipinos and Indian nationals dominate the nursing workforce in UAE.
UAE news site Khaleej Times said

According to the study, of the total 23,433 nurses from different nationalities working in the country, only 759 were Emiratis. Of this total, only 12 were male [Emiratis]. Indians andFilipinos continued to dominate the workforce

Obaid Al Jenaidi, president of the association said

The salary issues are also preventing Emiratis from working in the private sector and that’s why we don’t have a single local nurse in this sector

It is urgent for the UAE to open more universities for nurses, especially catering to male students, he said.

The study conducted by the nursing association intends to seek higher wages for nurses and to encourage Emiratis, particularly men, to enter the profession. This was presented during the International Nurses Day in Sharjah on Tuesday.
