Nurse salary in private hospitals on average is between N80,000 and N150,000. As for average salary level in government hospitals, it is around N80,000 – N150,000.

Some Experts also claim that this is an extremely low level of salary for such a hard work. In some cases one nurse can have over 30 patients under care, such situation happened because of a small number of professional nurses in the hospitals of the country.

One of the main reasons for such lack of personnel is low level of salary. As a result, we have a vicious circle, thus raising salaries for nurses can significantly improve health care system.
