You can't learn nursing in any hospital. That is quackery. Please understand the difference.
Don't let what happens in the Nigerian mushroom private clinics affect you....

People learn nurse nowadays in hospital but radiography is professional

Raw truth, I have a friend that was earning more than 280k here in Nigeria before traveling to UK. Even Med.Dic don't earn that much.

You peolpe comparison is not always make sence.How many radiographer do u have compare with doctor self. Can they function alone.they are what we call anxiliary to medicine
If it is so lucrative why is it that no one is study it

And secondly there is difft between radiographer and radiologist.One is actually a doctor ....so don't mix them up

Radiography!


Nurses are poorly paid in Nigeria. But it's highly rewarding abroad.

Radiographers are hot in Nigeria right now with good salary.

They are both professional courses but if you are aiming to practice in Nigeria go for radiography because most of them combines the practice with medical laboratory in terms of private practice and they make it big but if you want to leave the country better go for nursing. They make it bigger out there. I'm telling you with experience. I have a private medical laboratory but currently studying medicine and surgery. Most guys with well equipped radiology and medical laboratories are big boys Nigeria. Most of them make up to 2 to 3 million a month.

Young042galaxy:

How are you guys even arriving at all this?
Radiography starts in Conhess9 same as degree nursing. Nurses have higher chances of easy career progression with advanced training.
And nurses work 3 shifts per 24hrs which can give them enough time to equally manage other business/activities.
Oga, presently, there are many nurses in Nigeria without a job or jobs.
If we should look at it in Nigeria context, Radiography is more in demand than Nursing. Many hospitals and pharmacies are ready to offer accommodation to Radiographers than nurses.

Radiology school is easier. In the job, you don't deal with the dirty aspects of nursing. The pay is okay.

Nursing pays more and has more options. If you have the stomach for it, do it.

Re: Radiography Vs Nursing Which Is Better by Enuguguy: 6:07pm On Jun 30, 2022
In my 2nd year in nursing I nearly switched to radiography but thank God I never did
Radiography is better if you want to live in Nigeria but nursing if you want to travel
I am in UK now about to move to US and jokingly told my friend yesterday that if go to USA and I don't like it I will move to another country...he asked me why and I replied "because it's my right as a nurse "
Being a nurse can help you live anywhere in the world, it's rare to decline nurse's visa application

NB RADIOGRAPHY IS DIFFERENT FROM RADIOLOGY..A RADIOLOGIST IS A MEDICAL DOCTOR

Re: Radiography Vs Nursing Which Is Better by TRAY2(m): 6:10pm On Jun 30, 2022
I am currently an Advanced Practioner Ultrasonographer in the UK, Which is a specialty under Radiography, i used to be a Radiographer before specialising in Ultrasound, where i was sponsored by my current hospital for post graduate course in Ultrasound, which has elevated me to 2 steps higher banding(from band 5 to 7).
From my experience here the work load for nurses is very demanding, with limited opportunities to progress to band 6 and 7. A Radiographer work load is not as demanding and you can upgrade to a CT,MRI, PET scan Radiographer and Sonographer.

You're right. Since you're comparing it to nursing, I'm guessing you're referring to tech positions. Radiography techs make significantly less than radiology.

For me, I have never seen any registered nurse that is without job. How can that be when hundreds of nurses are leaving monthly? And our hospitals understaffed?
Do you even know that most nurses combine their work with home care?
Some homecare job goes as high as 150k.
How many Radiography labs do you even have around you and how many people can they employ?
Not all hospital even have radiography department except tertiary and top private hospitals.
And still, the percentage of Radiographers in the hospital won't be more than 5% of the total workforce of the hospital compared to nursing that contributes more than 30% of the workforce.

Radiography is great but much hazardous because of radiation which overtimes can get you down with cancer

Go for nursing
