Nnakwe Johnpaul Chris Chai,
why can't we just save up, write licensing exams for western countries, it's hard but let's try, the stress worth it, any serious minded person can begin with UK, the process is relatively straight forward... God bless us all
Atuh Oluchi Ugochukwu If we all go to UK who will do the work here, just being Inquisitve
Nnakwe Johnpaul Chris
If you're comfortable you can stay Atuh Oluchi Ugochukwu, many reasons underpin our decisions, my career path is Anaesthetic Nursing, which I can only reach the peak in country like 🇺🇸 where I can work, do my masters and doctorate in it, so leaving or staying is a choice, every year new nurses emerge, even many are unemployed, so job mobility entails people leaving old jobs for new people to take it up.
Bless UP

Nnakwe Johnpaul Chris
I personally can't do a nursing job of #50k, when I left school before NYSC many were rushing to do jobs of #20k, I stayed back assisting people with their Research, made more than that, and to the glory of God, everything worked out as prayed, an igbo adage says, ONYE KWE, CHI YA EKWE
Atuh Oluchi Ugochukwu Thanks o,then a sister needs your help if you can be true to your words as a good advicer, money is the issue here you know what am talking about

Olaonipekun O. Helen Atuh Oluchi Ugochukwu UK pathway is free of charge. All you need is pass ielts and cbt .

Joke Bello Sayomi
Olaonipekun O. Helen Nothing is free......money for d exam, money for review/lesson before exam, if you want to get materials to read nko (unless u use only free material by some good online groups).....all before you now get an agent.....visa, test ,ticket etc nothing is free my sister, may God help us all
Olaonipekun O. Helen
Joke Bello Sayomi 'Free' here means you are not paying any agent. It is a very transparent and easy access. You will definitely pay for exams.

Nnakwe Johnpaul Chris you have said it all... My brother don't mind them. Some nurses are the cause of all these peanut pay. They will never stand their ground when it come to remuneration. That's why doctors and other allied health professional tend to earn higher.

I was offered 50k job in a private hospital, they pay doctors 180k, medlab and pharm105, physiotherapist 120k, Sono130k, single quali 25k, Bnsc RN, and double qauli 50k.

I rejected the offer, I went and acquired skill while awaiting Nysc.
U need to see how nurses were desperate to get the job. I and one lady made a decision of not collecting the offer. Today she's outside the country.

My brother, I make my dols unapologically via the skill in my comfort zone.
Is good to work, I don't support idleness but my honorable colleagues any job that will not give me what I want shouldn't come at all.

#ONYE KWE, CHI YA EKWE#
IF U AGREE TO SETTLE FOR LESS, YOUR GOD WILL GREE

That's just the adage
Let's use our brain, anytime u are bargaining with an employer, ensure you arrived at a satisfactory amount.

Looking at the risks involve in dispensing holistic nursing care to the sick and non sick it's enough reason to reject any low pay job.
Nurses face same hazard with other health professionals that collects lion share as remuneration.

Pls don't allow our reward is heaven mentality to becloud you.
As the case maybe all the health workers n non health workers (everybody) reward is heaven.

Whenever I think of this, I break into spiritual or physical tears.

Nigerian intern Nurses are placed on CONHESS 7 While intern medical laboratory scientists, physiotherapists, pharmacists, etc are placed on CONHESS 8 as intern Doctors are placed on CONHESS 9. For justice to reign, intern Nurses should be palced atleast on CONHESS 8 to avoid frustrations and devaluation.
I seearched online and found that among the 28 countries with the least minimum wages, Nigeria is not among them. Surprisingly, Only 3 countries pay their Nurses less than Our beloved Country pays after conversion to the United States Dollars (USD). Somalia, Yemen, Sudan Nurses e.t.c got about 200 USD above Nigerian Nurse on a monthly bases talkless of other giant African countries like Egypt, South Africa, e.t.c. We are certainly incomparable to Asian, Ameriacan and European countries.

The dependance of quality of health care to Nursing services can not be over emphasized. Therefore, not only Nurses but all concerned citizens should please broadcast this as much as one could; in order to enhance fairness and quality of health care.

The poor payment also present it self after retirement. It is crystal clear that after retirement Nigerian medical doctors establish a clinic/hospital, Nigerian pharmacist opens a great pharmacy and medical laboratory scientist starts a well equiped laboratory. Sadly enough, Nigerian Nurse opens a petty drug store (refer to as chemist in Nigeria) after retirement which progressively vanished in less than 5 years due to inadequate savings that results from poor Salary.

We Cried Out! We voiced out!! We should be recognised!!! We call for justice and fairness!!! We call for equity!!!
