Haad Exam and Licensure for Nurses

HAAD or Health Authority-Abu Dhabi is the regulative body for all Healthcare profession, including nursing, in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The HAAD exam for nurses is a requirement for licensure in the emirate.

HAAD also shapes the regulatory framework for the health system, inspects against regulations, enforce standards, and encourages adoption of world – class best practices and performance targets by all healthcare service providers in the Emirate.Haad exam for nurses

  • Two Years of working experience in Medical-Surgical setting (Training and volunteer experience not accepted).
  • Passing of Haad Exam for Nurses

*For complete set of requirements and qualifications, here.

If you think you are qualified for HAAD Licensure, you can take HAAD exam anytime thru Pearsonvue Testing Centers around the world. If you’re a Filipino nurse, the you can take it in Pearson Testing Center in Trident Tower, Makati.

About HAAD Exam for Nurses

HAAD exam is computer-based exam, with 150 items in multiple choice format. It covers Nursing Fundamentals, Maternity nursing, Med-Surg nursing, Psychiatric nursing and nursing management and leadership. It is said to be easier than NCLEX and CGFNS exams. Saunders NCLEX Book and Mosby NCLEX are good references for study.

Result for HAAD exam is made available just minutes after the exam, so be ready. List of successful applicants is also posted in HAAD website. If you fail, you can retake HAAD exam in 3 months.

HAAD Exam Registration and Scheduling in Pearsonvue Online:

1. Create a web account at http://www.pearsonvue.com/haad/capva/. Pay the fee of $90 via Credit Card.

2. Meet all of the eligibility criteria for nurses in order for your application to be accepted.

3. Your username and password will be emailed to you within the next 48 hours. Check your junk/spam folders as Pearsonvue emails could go to these folders.

4. Schedule your HAAD exam. Login to your Pearsonvue account or schedule it via phone by calling Pearsonvue hotlines for HAAD exam.

5. Print your booking confirmation and bring it with you to the testing center. Candidates will receive a booking confirmation by email within 48 hours for the date and location that you will take the exam. If you do not receive the booking confirmation within 48 hours or if any of the information is erroneous, please contact Pearson VUE immediately thru phone or by email.

Taking HAAD exam:

If you have registered and scheduled to take HAAD exam in any Pearsonvue Testing Center, be reminded of the following:

  • Correct IDs. At least two valid, original IDs are required for admission in testing centers. For international testing centers, Passport must be one of the IDs and another government issued ID like drivers license, PRC ID, etc. Photocopies of IDs will not be accepted. Failure to show correct identification means refusal of admission for Haad exam, forfeiture of fees and cancellation of exam.
  • Booking confirmation. Print out the booking confirmation issued by Pearsonvue thru your email after you scheduled.
  • Go to Test Center early. Just like in NCLEX, we suggest that you to testing center 1 hour before the exam. This will give you enough time to complete admission procedures and relax yourself before taking the HAAD exam. Late candidates will be denied admission, and your registration and payment will be forfeited.

I hope this short guide on HAAD exam and licensure will help you pursue nursing career in Abu Dhabi.

    i would like to ask if the “Two Years of working experience in Medical-Surgical setting (Training and volunteer experience not accepted)” is a requirement for us, Filipino registered nurses, before we can take the HAAD exam? how about the fresh graduates? thank you for your reply! :)

    • Shingo says:

      Nate ang requirement tlaga na hhnniaaap para sa HAAD licensing ay 2 years.. in all honesty po, i doubt kung makakalusot sa HAAD ang application mo.. sa Dataflow ili-list mo ang experiences to cover 2 years and they will verify your employment,, just hope na hindi nila hanapan ng license mo sa pagpapractice mo ng profession sa Abu Dhabi.. ur experience in Phils = PRC Licenseur experience in Abu Dhabi = what? hindi naman po pwedeng PRC license din ang i-submit mo..provided, na makalusot ka sa Dataflow in the end, ganun pa din ang magiging issue pagdating sa HAAD Licensing Team, hahanapan ka pa din ng 2 yrs experience at licenses sa mga places na pinagtrabahuhan mo.. so kulang pa din po ung experience..just the same, it’s still ur call.. i am in no way any authority when it comes to HAAD processes, just sharing my thoughts.. sincerely wishing u the best, God speed!

  66. vivian b says:

    Hi, I’m a nurse and currently working in Saudi and had passed the Saudi Council Exam for nurses. I’m planning to apply in Dubai. Do I still need to take an examination for HAAD in order to qualify as a nurse applicant or just register the result of my examination from Saudi?

    • ben says:

      hi vivian b, If you’re planning to apply as a staff nurse in Dubai you need to take the exam under DHA (Dubai Health Authority). If in Abu Dhabi, then you need to take HAAD (Health Authority – Abu Dhabi) exam. You need to have a license if you want to work as a nurse here whether in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi. And passing the exam is just one of the requirements in getting a license. Your examination result from Saudi has nothing to do here… it could just be a plus factor for you when you apply to any prospective employer.

  67. Ela says:

    Hi i’m a registered nurse here in the philippines,and i’m working as a staff nurse in a surgical and lying-in clinic for almost 2yrs. i just want to know if im also qualified to take HAAD exam thank you

  70. Trishie B. says:

    Hi. So I just recently passed the NLE (December 2012).

    I have the following set of questions:

    1.) Am I qualified to take the HAAD-RN exam?
    2.) If I pass the HAAD-RN exam but is still unemployed, I would only be a passer of the exam and cannot bear the HAAD-RN suffix to my name just yet?
    3.) Does passing the HAAD-RN exam have an expiration date?

    • Mich says:

      You can take the HAAD-RN exam anytime, no problem. But you are not eligible for the HAAD license(that includes the suffix issue) because it requires a 2 year working experience, 1 of which must be in a med-surgical area.

      • rex says:

        hi, i have questions regarding the validity of haad passing certificate.
        1. If ever i have passed the said exam.. Would the validity of the certificate limited to a certain period of time so as for me to file for licensing immediately after passing the exam?

        2. Granted that i have already acquired such license, Would the license have an expiration date as well? if yes, would it be renewable?

        3. If ever i am a haad license holder, am i required to practice there and then in abu dhabi to keep the license valid., I am asking because i am currently working as a nurse in a tertiary hospital here in the philippines and at the end of this year i will be completing a favorable experience of three years in med-surg area. point, i am taking the exam now but i would apply for a job to abu dhabi not until next year.

        hoping to be enlightened from your responses.. thanks in advance

  71. condars says:

    hi, i took and passed the haad-rn exam, unfortunately due to my 1 year experience i am not qualified for a license, so they (employer) suggested to apply for a practical nurse license instead. my question is, if i get my PN license then work for 1 year, will that experience as a PN add up to my previous 1 years exp to apply for a haad RN license after?

    • susan says:

      hellow..condars….if u dont mind, can u share the haad questions .

    • Prince says:

      I couldn’t agree more about grtcareiis. I miss sitting with some of the elderly individuals I used to help and they would tell me stories for hours about the things that they witness when they were younger, and the lives that they lived up to the point that they needed care. I have always felt that the elderly know how to live their lives better than anyone, and they for sure never take it for granted! Sometimes the people taking care of them are not good people though, and it always breaks my heart to see someone talking badly to an elderly man or woman.I like how you made a switch from little tiny babies that have no real experience with life, to elderly men and women who have lived life to its fullest and still have more life to share with others. Such opposites!

    • jane says:

      hello condars..did you have HAAD PN license already?my haad RN license is disapproved so my employer advised to undergo haad PN license..is it possible in my case?

    Hi, i would like to ask if HAAD license is for nurses who had an experience at Medical-surgical ward only..How about those at the special areas? like me, an OR nurse, are they not eligible to take the exam n license? tnx

    • dreamer says:

      Hi erik, you’re eligible to take the exam and license. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have experience in MS as long as you meet the required 2 year experience preferably in a hospital setting, Others were able to get their licenses after passing the HAAD exam even though they previously worked in other areas such as OR, ER, NICU, Pedia, etc.

  79. carol says:

    hi , can i take haad examination even if my experience are 2 years in dental clinic in saudi arabia and 2 years nurse trainee med./surg. ward here in the philippines.? am i qualified to take the exam.plz reply

    • dreamer says:

      hi carol, having 2 years experience in dental clinic in KSA is already enough for you to take the exam and get the license afterwards (after passing the exam and with a sponsor already). Volunteer/trainee is not counted as experience even if it’s 10 or 20 years. Should be regular, hired employee before this can be counted as work experience.

  80. Mega-RN says:

    Hello sa lahat. may question lang po ako. kakapasa ko lang ng haad. ang question q is i have a 1 1/2 yrs experience on clinic and 1 year as RN heals (assigned only on Surgical ward) eligible kaya ako maprocess ung license ko with this experience? both paid naman sya. thank you sa magrereply.

      Hi Mega-RN, congrats for passing the HAAD exam. If you have 1 1/2 yrs experience sa clinic plus 1 yr as RN heals, meron ka nang 2 1/2 years experience total then you are already eligible to get HAAD license. Once you submit naman all the requirements needed for HAAD licensure, these will all be checked and verified. Kapag pumasa ka sa Dataflow, things will come out fine for you.

    Hi I am planning to take haad examination i have 2 years experience as a staff nurse in an emergency room setting I passes the nursing licensure examination last june 2012 Am I qualified to work as an HAAD-RN in abu dhabi if i will able to pass the exam?

    • dreamer says:

      Hi vrvill, your statement is somewhat confusing. you mentioned you have 2yrs experience working in ER and yet you only passed the NLE last june 2012. If we calculate your work experience, it has to be calculated from the moment you have your PRC ID, that is, the time you have registered as a licensed RN. This is the basis of working experience counted by HAAD personnel. Passing the HAAD exam is only one of the requirements in getting HAAD license. At least 2 yrs work experience post qualification is also one of them.

  88. Anerain says:

    Hi! I just passed my HAAD exam and had been sending out my CV to different agencies. But on one interview, I was told that my experience had to be at least 2 years STRAIGHT. Now, my hospital experience cumulatively would be about three years, but none of my certifications are actually 2 years straight. Is it really a must for my experience to be 2 years continuous?

    Ask ko lang sana if pwede po ba walk-in mag take ng haad exam? Wala po kasi ako creditcard

  96. JoedRn says:

    Guys, acquiring the haad license nowadays is composed of 3 separate steps in 3 separate agencies. 1. Go to dataflow, create an account and they will verify all your credentials. After that, they will issue certificate of verification and a haad application account. 2. Go to haad to and submit all your documents. Haad will evaluate your credentials and will issue e-ticket so you to take the exam. 3. Now u can go to pearsonvue and use this eticket to take the exam.

  104. wowa says:

    hi. i’ve read in another post that there’s no test center here in the Philippines anymore. they also changed the process this year wherein you first need to undergo the PSV (primary source verification) before you can be allowed to take the exam. my question is, where do they conduct the exams today if it’s true that the centers in QC, Makati, and Cebu are no longer existing? i also want to take the HAAD this year, but it seems like so may changes have been made starting this January. i dont know how to proceed anymore. anyone here who has some info, please do share. thanks! :-)
