@kristonium is correct. As for me, i happen to be a medical doctor, but you will always find me in webmasters sha. I spend most of my time in the IT world, it is only when i see posts like this that remind me. . . .
Meanwhile, those nurses that dont have Bsc and much experience - i have never seen them in general/teaching hospitals - i think they are limited
to private hospitals where they are paid peanuts. It is really a tough world for nurses in this our own part of the world.
And it is not like it is that easy for doctors too, if you are not a specialist and want to rely on PP, many hospitals pay like 50k/month for you to do
night calls every day of the week, and some will even add alternate weekends to it.
You get paid better if you are a specialist, but omo mehn, to become a specialist doctor no be beans mehn. . .

Anyway sha, design your websites at www..net / and dont call me if you get headache. . .
. Na ur type dey waste im papa money for school. U know say na webmaster u wan do and u leave webmaster go dey study medicine. Anyway sha, e better as u know practise am at all because na ur type go give person wey get eye problem injection for im eye.

i don't know about private hospital or government hospital, but i can testify for many companies such as NLNG/Shell etc, the average nurse/first Aider is not earning less than 100k, most companies used first aiders with Red Cross cert as their nurse, for example most of our nurses here in our company (SPDC) don't even have HND talk more Bsc. but none of them earn less than 100k

thanks a lot for all your posts! a lot of you already answered my questions. i am almost done with my 1st degree here in the USA and i have intentions of coming back home to get a 2nd degree in nursing. pls dnt ask me why i can't do it here in the US, i already have my pre-nursing courses and have applied to several schools already but it seems to be that the waiting list to get in is either too long or their requirements are rather too high, as we all know nursing here in the US is very competitive and hard to get in, why? , because everybody wants to do nursing here and they only need a certain amt of people to get in each semester/year.
so instead of waiting and losing years, i will come back home and do it, my best bet now. and then it will be up to me to decide on where i want to practice it.
I'm thinking about doing/starting with school of nursing and after that i'm gonna hustle to work in a FG hospital or a private firm such as shell. maybe get to masters level and specialize eventually.
also i was wondering, any special school of nursing recommendations? i heard SON Abuja and Enugu are very good.

My mum, a nurse (CNO) working wiv one of the local government general hospitals in Rivers State earns precisely 406k. I know this cos ΒΆ checked her salary withdrawal booklet some months ago. And funny enough, the senior nurses at these LGA's work just morning duties (7-2pm) for like 3days in a week. Am sure her friend working wiv NNPC hospital earns more than that.

BSc Nursing entry level

As from the beginning of 2010 based on the CONHESS salary structure, a BSc Nurse certificate holder without any experience would start as Nursing Officer II on conhess Level 7 Step 2.

At that level+step, at least at federal hospitals and at state hospitals that have fully implemented conhess, the pay for a Nursing officer II is N981,712 per annum. That is roughly N82K per month.


Nursing highest level

The highest level in conhess is Level 15. Lowest pay (Step 1) is N4,222,544 per annum. That is roughly N352K per month.

The pay at the mid range of this level (Step 5) is N4,675,372 per annum. That is roughly N390K per month.

The pay at the highest step of this level (Step 9), hence the highest pay possible for a nurse as basic salary in the public sector, is N5,128,200 per annum. That is roughly N427K per month.


Other top Nursing levels

Just below the highest level, at Level 14 (which is Deputy Director level), lowest pay (Step 1) is N3,419,418 per annum. That is roughly N285K per month.

The pay at the mid range of this level (Step 5) is N3,813,209 per annum. That is roughly N318K per month.

The pay at the highest step of this level (Step 9) is N4,207,000 per annum. That is roughly N351K per month.



The second next level below the highest level, Level 13 (which is CNO level), lowest pay (Step 1) is N2,775,426 per annum. That is roughly N231K per month.

The pay at the mid range of this level (Step 5) is N3,107,490 per annum. That is roughly N259K per month.

The pay at the highest step of this level (Step 9) is N3,439,555 per annum. That is roughly N287K per month.


Further details

These excludes all allowances. There are several allowances (e.g. specialist, call-duty, shift-duty, hazard, teaching, rural posting etc) that can add anywhere between 30% to 50% of the stated salary if one gets them all. But I don't know how those work, who qualifies for them and how frequently the nurse can engage in activities that qualify for them.

Level 6 - Staff Nurse
Level 7 - Fresh BSc Graduate/Nursing Officer II/Midwife Educator II
Level 8 - Nursing Officer I/Midwife Educator I/Senior Nursing Officer
Level 9 - Senior Nursing Officer
Level 10 - Principal Nursing Officer
Level 11 - Principal Nursing Officer/Senior Matron
Level 12 - Assistant Chief Nursing Officer/Chief Matron
Level 13 - Chief Nursing Officer/Chief Nurse Tutor/Assistant Director
Level 14 - Deputy Director
Level 15 - Director

Midwives in Nigeria asks for improved infrastructure
Re: How Much Do Nurses Earn In Nigeria? by Nobody: 10:15pm On Sep 26, 2014
Dextra: In the private hospitals which prefer to employ auxilary nurses, they pay 30k or less to RN, 40k to Bsc nurses for over 10 hrs per day wit few off days(i.e big private hosp in Abuja), FG hospitals can start you on 70k nd above. The NGO's pay well nd in dollar almost lyk abroad. National hosp & state house clinic pay big too but u need a letter frm a minister or top politician. Nurses are under payed. If u want gud pay u must get more qualification, e.g RN=3 nd half years, + any specialty=2yrs,+ Bsc=4yrs. Total 10 yrs of study. The educational system is not gud. Not evrybody can get into university to get BSC.
Actually...this is wrong Dora. As a matter of fact, private establishment pays higher than government. M working now and I have 6 packs in a month

Salary of Nurses in Nigeria

Some years back, the Federal Government made a decision to increase the salary of health workers in Nigeria including nurses may be because the professional roles or service offered by these health workers do not quite commensurate with their formal salaries.

This was clearly emphasized in the new CONHESS structure. It is pertinent to note that the salary structure of these health workers which include nurses, therefore, differs from the Consolidated Tertiary Institution Salary Structure and Consolidated Public Service Salary Structure.

Allowances entitlements associated with the salary structure of nurses

Specialist allowance: This applies to healthcare professionals that have attained the position of consultant


Call of duty allowance: This applies to nurse professionals who are opportune to work in Federal hospitals or medical centers. As long as a nurse works in a clinic, he/she you expect a call duty allowance.


Shift duty allowance: This applies to nurses who run shifts according to the existing call duty roster


Non-clinical duty allowance: This allowance applies to health professionals who include nurses that offer their professional service in the Federal Ministry of Health or the Federal Health Institution. It is pertinent to know that nurses and other professional health workers do not receive shift or call duty allowance, so therefore the non-clinical duty allowance is an alternate emolument to professionals working in the Federal Ministry of Health or Federal Health Institute.


Clinical duty allowance: This is applied to consultants who are employed as academic staff in the university and render clinical services in the teaching hospital of that particular higher institution

Teaching allowance: this allowance is applied to nurses that are involved in teaching health professionals at the Federal Institution


Hazard allowance: This allowance applies to all health professionals in practice.

Rural posting allowance: This allowance are applied to health professionals which include the nurses who are appointed to offer health service in rural areas

The salary Size of Nurses in Nigeria

It is necessary to be aware of the disparity in the salary offer of nurses scattered around in Nigeria. However, in accordance with a recent survey, over 50% of nurses earn N100 000 to N300 000 monthly
