Nurse Liz asks:
Hi I am just wondering if I could ask the nursing community if anyone has worked in the Middle East. what position they had, where in the Middle East they were, and what they thought if it. Good and bad points, challenges and points to consider. Looking to go there later on this year and just after some insight. Any information would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Liz
