    Step by Step Procedures for Nurse Technician

    Go to the website: http://www.prometric.com

    1. Under For Test Takers, tick the dropdown list box on Academic, Professional, Government & Corporate, scroll down and click Saudi Commission for Health Specialties.

    2. You will be directed to a new window of SCHS: Saudi Commission for Health Specialties Testing and you may read on some articles there regarding the organization itself. On the Get Started Box click Start.

    3. From the Program Name drop down list box: choose the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (Non-elig) --- the other options apply only to those who are currently in the kingdom --- then choose Philippines then click Next.

    4. You will then be directed to a new window. Click Schedule an Exam. A new window will appear showing the details of registration (requirements, scheduling, payment, etc.). Click Next.

    5. You will tick I Agree on the Policy Statement and click Next.

    6. Under Exam Selection you will choose Nurse technician --- There are actually 2 options for nurses: Nurse Specialist and Nurse Technician. I personally cannot differentiate the two but to be sure, just ask your agency on what to choose here. FYI: Nurses from Saudi Recruitment Office (SRO) and other agencies in the metro instruct applicants to take the Nurse technician exam.

    7. Another window will appear prompting you to type your address. Type in Philippines then click Search. There are two sites but it just bears the same address. On the time of writing this (March 15, 2010, 1500H), the 8475 location is not available. So instead, I chose 8479, Manila Philippines.

    8. Click Schedule an Exam. You will be prompted to select your desired exam month, date and time.

    9. You will be directed to another window and you will type some additional information. Type the required information including your name, address, birth date, e-mail address, government identification card, etc. --- In the identification card, what I typed was: Professional ID Card (the space where you will type requires a limited number of characters and ‘Professional Regulation Commission ID’ would not fit in that is why I just settled for ‘Professional ID Card.’). Anyway, you may use other government issued card like Driver’s License and Passport. --- and in the Government ID Issuing the Card, choose: Philippines.

    10. After that, you will proceed to another window and you will be typing the necessary information under the Payment Information. Type the Card Number, the Security Code --- I used the Visa Card of my mom and the security code is placed at the back of the card alongside the signature.. You will type the last 3-digit code. Don’t you worry, if you got no idea on this there is a user friendly HELP button there that will show a figure, i.e., credit card, where you can spot the required digits).--- Type in the Name (the owner of the card) and the Expiration Date of the card. Review the information and click Next.

    11. After that you will be asked to review the entered information once again and you will click Complete Registration.

    The final window will show you the completed registration list for you to print. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you as well in 15 minutes after registration has been completed.D
