Pharmacy Versus Nursing: Which One Is More Lucrative?
When you talk of lucrative medical profession in Nigeria, Nursing and Pharmacy comes to my mind.
Nursing, unlike pharmacy, is a global profession that requires a Nigerian qualification to operate in certain countries.
Prior to taking the professional exam, students must finish a year-long course to convert their credential into an OSPAP diploma certificate. In contrast to nursing where a Nigerian diploma in nursing can be used to sit for the CBT.
In certain countries, pharmacy (like medicine) is not offered at the B.Sc level. A three-year ordinary course is followed by a two-year master’s program in pharmacy (same thing). If you take your B.pharm to such countries, it will be treated as a conventional B.Sc, and you will still be needed to complete a two-year master’s degree.
To practice, I believe that if you have your Ph.D. in Nigeria, you would be able to practice everywhere with only a license exam.
Between nursing and pharmacy, which profession do you think is more lucrative? Let’s discuss.
