Nurses in Nigeria’s salary is based on the Consolidated Health Salary Structure (CONHESS). The federal government introduced this structure in 2009. It came to full effect in 2010.

Also, the salaries of other healthcare professionals such as Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Medical Laboratory Scientists, and Radiographers are also based on this structure. But the doctors have a different salary structure-the CONMESS.

An entry-level nurse can not be placed lower than CONHESS 07 on the salary structure. However, as the nurse’s years of experience increase so also will he or she rise on the salary structure accumulating more pay in the process.
