MANILA, Philippines – The Persian Gulf state of Oman is in need of 3,288 doctors and nurses, Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said Friday.

Baldoz said Oman was hiring due to a projected shortage in medical professionals in the country.

“This latest positive development will certainly boost the chances of our highly skilled and highly qualified medical workers, particularly our nurses, of getting a job in Oman if they are inclined to,” she said in a statement.

The labor secretary said Philippine Ambassador to Oman Joselito Jimeno informed Manila that Oman Minister of Health Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Obaid al-Saidi had said the country was facing a shortage of around 8,900 doctors and nurses going to 2015.

Jimeno said Oman needed nurses experienced in obstetrics, gynecology, anesthesiology, surgery (neuro and cardio), intensive care and psychiatrics.

Professional nurses in Oman earn an average basic salary of US$700, according to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration.

      have you been employed by the ministry of health of the sultanate of oman? consider these: about 45day paid vacation w/free plane accomodation, free quarters-air conditioned, very cheap subsistence, may sundo hatid pa from home to work, the only down-side is NAKAKALUNGKOT pero masasanay ka rin.  SORRY TO TELL YOU THAT ENTRANCE EXAM IS NOT EASY. US$800 is NET more or less.

    This is good for young nurses who graduated from nursing school within the last five years, better than making 10,000 pesos per month here in our country.

    I will take this offer if I were one of the young nurses and going to the US and other countries is not my option.
