Before talking about our salary or what we earn as nurses, we would need to organize our educational system. When our education is organised then can we be placed properly with others with the same qualifications. SON should go under ministry of education and it should be a monotechnic with RN certificate equivalent to HND. Salary can then be equivlent to those with HND.
Bnsc should be given internship and then thier salary same as other with degree. We need to organise ourslf within so we can fight for our right

You see where we are!, division, selfishness, lack of focus and proper vision has placed us behind in the health care sector. We may have to fight again when others are busy enjoying the gains of the struggle. What on earth is the problem with nurses, especially those leading us. How can we use our mouths and hands to run our dear profession down these much? Where is the gain of GNAN and NANNM struggle? A house divided against itself can never stand. You have the opportunity to repair the walls you have pulled down, else, some other people will and posterity will judge all that are involved in this set back and selfishness.

Am a registered Nurse working in sokoto state. talking about how much do nurses earn in Nigeria well I will say that the work of a nurse and the duty of a nurse is more than the salaries that they are being paid. like here in sokoto some clinics pays 8k, 18k, highest u can get is 20k and with this peanut called salary you will be the to run morning and evening shifts. I don't work in the clinics though but other colleagues who work there do tells us their experiences.

I will suggest that NANNM should work on the nurses salaries in Nigeria by telling the ministry of health and the federal government to review our salaries again. because the weight of all the ward duties are all on the nurses with all this should we paid less?

CONHESS 9 (which is another starting point for health workers eg pharmacist etc) #161,670.33.

NOW LETS STILL COMPARE THE SALARY OF A NEWLY EMPLOYED DOCTOR ABOVE WITH A HEALTH WORKERS THAT HAVE SPENT 6 TO 9 YEARS IN SERVICE WHICH IS CONHESS 11.

CONHESS 11:#223,345.58 (difference of #37,520.00) 17% difference.

65% difference.

PROPOSED CONHESS 11:

Recent researches showed that over 50% of nurses in Nigeria have are paid between N100,000 and N300,000, and about 38% receive between N50,000 and N100,000. Only 10% of nurses earn N300,000.

Nurse salary in private hospitals on average is between N80,000 and N150,000. As for average salary level in government hospitals, it is around N80,000 – N150,000. Experts also claim that this is an extremely low level of salary for such a hard work. In some cases one nurse can have over 30 patients under care, such situation happened because of a small number of professional nurses in the hospitals of the country.

One of the main reasons for such lack of personnel is low level of salary. As a result, we have a vicious circle, thus raising salaries for nurses can significantly improve health care system.

Sadeeq Labaran Majidadi
Each and everyone of us in this our noble profession in Nigeria is aware of the current situations at hand the issue's of Minimum wage if nurses doesn't discuss the subject matter how can we finally achieved flat rate as other on mention professional in any settings. There is different diversity in health institutions which the matter is been discuss some teaching hospital pays lower than some same to FMC not talking of state level is that how the profession supposed to move forward... WE THANK GOD NURSES ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND ELEGANT LOOKING FLAMBOYANT IN THE HOSPITAL WITH LOW SALARY SCALE SINCE FROM THE STEM ROOT OF INTERNSHIP.... The more we verbalize the more action is law will be enact.. Sorry when you find it or view my post in the other hand. Pardon . As a professional if matter arises insult is unprofessionalism
ibironke Khadeejah Quadri
Remuneration and salary scale should be an open book please! How would you have comparative advantage against and with other professionals if you cannot openly discuss about what you earn. Discuss it openly so you can fight collectively for better pay packages for your profession and team wherever you find yourself. The secrecy issue has led not only to professional backwardness but affect lots of people in there personal and even matrimonial relationships. We must be open as a society to discuss every financial /monetary issues if we truly want to grow at par with the global economy/practices

Some RN in private sector ( especially those in Lagos) earn more than people in government owned hospital but with tedious job description. Some have more job autonomy. I have a friend who earns above 200k in a construction company. I was being paid 100k over 6 years ago in a private hospital. Even at that time I wasnt eager to work in a federal hospital. I started with 17k in Ibadan, moved to lagos and started from 45k then was gradually increased to 100k and I had the chance to request for an increase before i moved

Yetunde Funmilayo Soniran Akinsanya
U are right...Am not finding it funny at all... Probably,there is no association fighting for Nurses working in Private Hospitals... Everyone can't work in STATE, FEDERAL, MINISTRY, HEALTH CENTERS.There should be a body dt fights for Nurses in Private Sectors.. Private Sectors see it in ds way...If u can't accept d money/salary then u can leave probably cos of the Auxiliary Nurses they are are making use of....If I tell u what I am earning after how many years of working experience....It is well especially if u find urself in a State where they are doing job discrimination....if u are not an indigen, u can't work in their State Hospital. . if u don't know anyone in ASO ROCK,u can't work in Federal/Teaching Hospital.
IT IS WELL
Ukaegbu Christiana Kessy
Yetunde Funmilayo Soniran Akinsanya my dear that's just the truth .I went twice to nursing council for this issue of private nurses if we r not part of the registered nurses with the council ?why are they quiet over their situations .infarct all I was told at the end of the day was nothing could be done better still we should go to labour .infact I regretted wasting my flight tickets. The worst is that all this hospital can never have any to do with labour agency in this country. My dear this a pity
Yetunde Funmilayo Soniran Akinsanya God will help us IJN
Adesoye Omotayo Abiodun Honestly, its worth fighting for.
Imaging an organization imposing on their employees a BI_DUTY with 2 nurses caring for about 35patients at each shift.Private settings so humiliating.
I concur with survey
Ogbonna Catherine
It hurts me so much that this nation called Nigeria does not have regard for health sector as a whole, especially that of nurses. The worst of it all is that of south East. I'm from the East oh! ,but I had to run away from that side due to the insults and abuse in the name of salary. Imaging ,how can someone went to school spend years , and obtain double qualification in nursing field, then when u go for job interview, the owner or firm will ask you all the questions they know in this world . Then when is time for, How much can they pay. They will be like, eeeeeh no need to talk much what we can offer is 25 to 30 thousand, hope is OK with you. Imaging the insolence. Slavery in disguise . And most of them are running 2 shifts oh! .
Beautiful nonsense
Nnabuife Ibekwe Jane Eseoghene Nnewi RN, btw N10,000(Single Nursing Ladies), (Married)N12,000 to N30000
Bsnc maybe higher
I am very Serious
