Nursing in Nigeria is shit! I woyld never practice except the compulsory internship. I said what I said, you cannot change my opinion and never did I say I was un proud of my profession. Nigeria is shit, everything is shitty. Abeg.

Considering the bold phrase, I guess this thread isn't for u because u may never be qualified to achieve the aim of this thread.

Lol, nursing in the US is much better than Nigeria but it’s not a bed of roses here either especially bedside nursing. In my area, there is massive turn over rate with nurses.
pls what do you mean by "massive turn over rate with nurses"? I want to know better.

Massive turn over rates , I mainly talking about bedside nursing , bedside nursing jobs tend to be very stressful so people are always leaving. Another reason for turn over ,is that new graduate nurses will work a job out of school they do not particularly care for , get some experience and leave. Also the younger are going for nurse practitioner school one -two years out of school. The good thing about in American nursing is that there are many places and specialities in nursing. I’m just shedding light on actual nursing in America , since no one has really talked about it in this thread.

They will feed you that shit about nursing being a God's calling and the only way to heaven just to lock you down and stampede on your dampened soul.
The truth is that practicing nursing in Nigeria especially in government and mushroom private hospitals is the fastest way to becoming a witch. Don't quote me please, I have been in it for 15 years. Thank you

By the way, how stressful and costly can it be for a student nurse like me aspiring to work and specialize in anesthetic nursing in the US? And which state would you recommend for a nurse just coming to the US?

You want to become a crna, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist? That usually requires at least a bachelor a degree in nursing and some nursing experience preferably in the intensive care unit . It would be hard to get into the program straight from Nigeria. I can not really specify any state, generally you don’t want states that are in high demand for American nurses because chances of employment sponsorship is low. To get direct sppnship from the facility is very hard these days , you may have to go through an agency , a popular one is avant.

So you mean it's going to be hard to get into a MSc anesthetic nursing program even after gaining some experience in an ICU in the US

what you said scared me a little. I'm a BNSc student and I have it in mind to work a little and then get a CRNA. I never know that a CRNA program could be that competitive although I found out that it can be very expensive.

Nigerians are too docile. What's keeping you nurses from heading to the nursing council office in Abuja in protest of this very extreme exploitive hike. Or even protesting to the various concerned Government agencies...

You guys will just complain over the internet, but in reality, crawl back to your homes and then pay in the money.

Rubbish!!

A plan is already being set in place to protest the increment, there are also petitions that has been raised to this effect. Thousands of nurses already signed the petition and are still signing it

Hello house,
This post is about Nigerian Midwives who wish to apply to and work as a Registered midwife in New Zealand.
It is strictly for holders of Basic Midwifery certificate. That is, you studied Midwifery for 3yeara and got registered and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.
You must have worked for at least 3 years.
New Zealand offers good opportunuties for foreign midwives. A newly employed midwife in New Zealand earns 47000 New Zealand dollar per year. That's about 11,600,000 naira.
I will give a step by step procedure
1. Complete a three years Basic Midwifery study and get registered and licensed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.
2. Get a valid (not expired) international passport ready. This cost around 25,000 naira from any immigration office near you.
2. At this point I advise you open a dollar account in any Nigerian bank so you can easily pay for your application and registration fee to New Zealand Midwifery Council. Don't panic. Its not difficult to open. Just go to aboki buy US$10 with 3500 naira. Go with your intl passport, electricity bill, 2 passport photographs to FCMB bank and they will do it for you. When you are ready to apply to New Zealand Midwifery Council, you must buy dollar from aboki and pay into this account to cover the amount you want to pay to New Zealand Midwifery Council. You need this because you can't pay to New Zealand Midwifery Council with your naira atm card.
3. Log in to
www.midwiferycouncil.health.nz/midwives/becoming-registered-practise/internationally-qualified-midwives-application-guidelines to study the guidelines.
4. With your valid valid license and intl passport ready and your dollar account funded with at least US$200, you Log in to www.midwiferycouncil.health.nz and create an account in their website. You will be given a username and password which you will need to Log in anytime. Click on 'Apply' and select 'Oversea' and fill the form.
Select 'Assessment fee'. This is because your documents will be assessed first before proper registration. Assessment fee is 250 New Zealand dollar, about 62,000 naira.
On payment option, select credit card and fill in the details on your dollar account atm card.
If they confirm your credentials to be true, they will give you decision letter to pay for your registration and license. This cost 750 New Zealand dollar, about 186,000 naira.
5. After filling the form online, you will be asked to print out two forms. You will take one to Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria to fill and send directly to New Zealand Midwifery Council.
6. You will send the following documents by post to:
New Zealand Midwifery Council,
Level 5,
22 Willeston Street,
Wellington Central,
Wellington 6011,
New Zealand.
- A photocopy of the data page of your intl passport
- Photocopy of your RM Notification of Registration
- Certificate of Good Standing. This with be sent by Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria directly to New Zealand Midwifery Council. NMCN charges around 10,000 naira for this.
7. Your CV signed and dated. It must also state names, full addresses of all health facilities/clinics/hospitals you have worked, your position, ward and explain the functions of that ward/unit.
8. Meet the Principal of your school of Midwifery and ask them to send your transcripts to:
New Zealand Midwifery Council
Tell your Principal to add that your studies were conducted and you were examined in English language. This is very important. If this is not stated, you will be required to sit and take IELTS test.
9. Get a reference letter from one of your former or current employer stating your Midwifery ability and conduct.
Another reference letter can come from a person of high standing but not related to you. You will add it in the documents you will send to New Zealand Midwifery Council.
10. Get a medical certificate of physical and mental fitness from a government hospital.
11. Fill the Self Assessment Against Competencies form. This is the second form you printed from New Zealand Midwifery Council website. You are required to have conducted at least 30 deliveries by yourself, 20 as assistants and 50 as observer. You will answer some questions on antenatal, postnatal, episiotomy, deliveries, medical surgical nursing, etc.
12. Photocopy of your WAEC/NECO. Ask your school to give you a testimonial stating your academic background and conduct. Your secondary school must state that English was the medium of study and you were examined in English language. This is the condition New Zealand Midwifery Council accepts to exempt you from taking IELTS.
12. First School Leaving Certificate.
13. Completed and printed online application form from New Zealand Midwifery Council website.
Note: all Photocopies must be notarised by a solicitor. He must print his name, Complete address, phone number, rank/designation and state 'I certify this document a true copy of their originals' on each documents. If this is not done, it will be rejected. So get a lawyer do that.
Mail all documents to:
New Zealand Midwifery Council in the address stated above.
If you have further questions on registration and licensing, pls write to New Zealand Midwifery Council via info@midwiferycouncil.health.nz
After your qualification is assessed and New Zealand Midwifery Council informs you, the next step is to look for Midwives recruitment agency in New Zealand.
They will assist you get a job while you are still in Nigeria.
They will file application for your work permit, pay your visa fee, your flight ticket, receive you on arrival in New Zealand and arrange an accommodation for you. You will sign a contract to work for them for 2 or 3 years. This does not affect your salary oo.
If you are married, they can sponsor you, your husband and one child or you and two children without your husband.
If you have further questions on Sponsorship, pls write:
info@accent.net.nz

enquiries@tonix.co.nz
Or

In New Zealand we require nurses to communicate effectively with patients, colleagues, employers and other health professionals. You must pass an approved English Language test before you apply for registration.

You must provide evidence of least two years' post-registration experience. You must have two years' nursing practice in the last five years. We count five years from the date you applied for New Zealand registration. For example, you applied on 1 April 2018; we look at the time frame from

Please click here for more information about CAP programmes.

Please i need more clarification because on the document i printed out from Texas BON, it is stated there.

Kindly send me an email on anderlynnadi@yahoo.com if you don't mind.

Hello,

although your question wasn't directed at me specifically but I could be of help if wouldn't mind. U don't have to pay another money to Nursing Council of Nigeria for another verification, the one with CGFNS will suffice. And if I got you right, u said your CES report has already been issued by CGFNS, if that's the case, all u need to do now is to wait for TBON to send u ATT, u don't even need to contact them for that, they will do the needful.

I hope that helps!

Nursing is stagnant in Nigeria cos females abound. The amount of bickering in my class alone is depressing. Beefs and senseless fights everyday. They will graduate and carry same behaviour to wards. Please, we need more males to instil sanity. I cant do this alone.
