You should cure yourself of inhumane syndrome, it's unfortunate you prescribe to innocent folks, whereas you are a wolf in sheep clothing.

You think you are making impact, review your claim and realise how stone hearted it weighs

You shall not escape judgement
Your insincerity is quite glaring as well as your Stark display of ignorance. You're using words you don't even know the meaning. You surely sound like someone with personality disorder. I'm sorry for your current predicament that has made you bitter, sorry the troubles will pass away with time, no need to vent your frustration on innocent people that you have no business with. The state of your plight is pathetic.

You could have attended school, but I’m so sorry the education doesn’t reflect in you. I understand that is inherent and genetic.

So obvious that dwelling on the negative side of the intelligence scale is your watchword and there is nothing anyone can do about that.

It is better you go back to the forest where your progenitors belong
Do you know what you are writing? No wonder your type are pegged at a 6.5 in IELTS writing module. Do not mumble words that you are not sure of their meaning and usage. You are a small girl; humble yourself so that you can learn and grow. With this unteachable attitude, you can't learn. Always stick to what you know! It's a candid advice. Don't peddle lies over what you know nothing about. If you don't know a thing, ask! You still did not show me the grammatical error in the sentence: did you go to school?
I have nothing against you, and I would love to see you excel in your chosen profession. But that will only happen at a cost; humility and the willingness to learn.

You that own a farm and get profit from it you are not involved in greed and extortion right?

Well done, the condemn-er of the brethren. The chief accuser of the brethren.

The mechanic that repairs and services your car is not greedy when he collects his fee?
The market men and women that you buy stuffs from in the markets are not greedy when they make profit from you?

But the Pharmacists, the Doctors, the Nurses, that provide both professional services and pharmaceutical products are greedy, yes? Why? Because you feel they are rich, and because you belong to the group entitled Nigerians who believe those who have money by default owe the poor every thing.

Pele, chief condemn-er.

By the way, I don't only have a well-paying job as a pharmacist, I also own a pharmaceutical company, a farm (including poultry), a financial services firm (co-owned with partners) and so on... Perhaps, you need an adjective that is much worse than "greed" to describe me since I am responsible for any condition that you might have.


You really have time replying every of his response.

With the nigerian situation, you can find pharmacists willing to be associated for a fee, so it is just like another job and he is easily replaceable if the contract is done right in a situation where the non-pharmacist holder controls the fund. Being a partner doesnt mean you have 50% share for contributing no fund to the business. Besides, the option of being a partner isnt even readily available for pharmacists, a lot of them will jump at that opportunity.
On the partner issue, it's actually one of the most readily available options alongside Medical repping. I've lost count of the offers I got even before finishing NYSC (I had my professional license already) and even till now. It seems a number of rich businessmen are becoming aware of the benefits associated with private community establishments, more reason they're willing to delve into the area.

You sound so knowledgeable about what nurses make except it is not entirely accurate. I have friends that make 450-650k in Nigeria as nurses, without their BSc, granted it's in the oil sector and all except one have specialty qualification outside general nursing but I also have another with 12yrs experience that makes 400k/month outside the oil sector, I've come across others that make way more in higher managerial positions, all private sectors. I also got a 150k/month offer as a neonatal intensive care nurse when I had less than 4 years nursing experience in 2017. I dont know the full details of the public sector except for those earning 115-150k and they dont have up to 20yrs experience like you stated so I'm not going to dive into that.

As far as traveling abroad goes, it's always good to weigh your options, I didnt even plan to relocate outside the country before or right after school of nursing in 2013 but during the 2016 recession, I had a rethink and God used nursing to bless me. I decided where I wanted to go from a list of US, UK, Republic of Ireland and Canada. The first 2 offered jobs, green card sponsorship and relocation expenses and Ireland offered 2 out of those 3. After I made up my mind on the one I wanted, wrote the required exams and applied for jobs, I got 3 jobs while I was in Nigeria, i chose 1 that offered the most for the shortest contract and good pay. Relocation and green card sponsorship was by the facility, they even offered to sponsor spouse and kids under 21 If I had any, they paid my flight ticket, first 2 months rent, entire visa process (I left the country with an immigrant(green card) visa), gave me a non interest car loan after I got here and helped me settle in. There was no nepotism involved. I'm sure you cant get that with pharmacy anywhere. There is also more job opportunities and career options for nurses home and abroad. Also, you actually dont need to be a pharmacist to set up a pharmacy, you just have to partner with one.
Wow; Impressive, although the chance of actualising a similar feat is quite slim even among your fellow nurses. You are wrong with sounding so certain a similar feat can't be achieved with pharmacy anywhere; I agree it could be quite challenging for a clinical role; however, I have a number of senior colleagues who have gone through similar route for a research/academic role. So it's not so far-fetched as you think.

For nurses it is available even without a BSc and just 1 to 2 years experience, paid employment from the start with full benefits and sponsorship. Imagine the education and experience required before you can even come close to having such in pharmacy research.

More than half of those who'll comment here are ignorant about the two professions.

Stick to which you are comfortable with.
Am a pharmacy student and can practice in any country when am through. All it requires is obtaining the said country's license through series of exams.

So Ignore those talking about which is more useful abroad and all.

You just go back, look at the two courses and make a decision. If you don't like chemistry avoid pharmacy.



It's way easier for a nurse to migrate and practice in the U.K and U.S.......I am a Dentist,,it aint that easy for pharmacists...I can't count the number of Nigerian nurses I know practicing in the U.K actually..While I dont know any pharmacists doing such..

The pay is based on negotiation so there's no fixed amount; however, it's generally in the range of 900-1.3M/year and above for the license and 150K and above for the salary based on my observation. Your question regarding the short-/long-term benefits is unclear; except for the fact you get paid, which is general for every discipline, I really don't see much benefits.

You mean you didn't need to write any licensing exams before practicing over there? To answer your question, no significant education- or working experience is required. Just your bachelors degree and 1 or 2 publications in reputable journals will do. And most of them just found of a way of getting their undergraduate theses published in collaboration with their supervisors. The major (if not only) edge Nursing has over Pharmacy is the ease of conversion by the licensing body (before being eligible for practice) in a different country. Besides that, I really don't see much to it.

You are very correct.

I got into pharmaceutical research in Europe years ago without writing any licensing exams. I still visit Europe every now and then without any such licensing exams. I have worked and lived in Europe for years working in an area of pharmaceutical research without any such licensing exams. The problem we have in this thread is that people who have zero knowledge of the Pharmacy and Nursing professions and the ones trying to provide information about the two. It would really be good to stick to what people do know.

I could have ignored him, but then that is how people like him start malicious public misinformation purely because of envy.

To study pharmacy is not a joke in Nigeria; it is arguably one of the toughest courses you would every study. Any pharmacist will immediately agree with that assessment. And to practice in Nigeria too, you are literally on your own practicing against the background of so much quackery and unflattering economic conditions; yet some people like him believe that the barely decent life that Nigeria pharmacists try to eke for themselves must be because they are extorting their clients and because they are greedy or lustful. The profession is one of the most decent professions in Nigeria, and many will agree with that. And I think those who know the profession and/or are members of the profession should come out once in a while to set the records straight.

Fun fact: midwives in Nigeria are permitted to open their own maternity homes, free lance Nurse anaesthetist with connections can make a couple hundred in a week. Nursing isn't just bedside also. It's good to know the opportunity abounds for pharmacists though. I really want opportunities like this in Nigeria, nursing or not.
