Relocating from US to Nigeria

  1. Hello,
    I know this is a switch, normally Nigerian nurses want to leave Nigeria. I am an American born and trained nurse who is moving to Nigeria with my husband.
    I am interested in the degree requirements.
    I have an Associates Degree in Nursing and have been an RN for 27 years, I have worked as an ICU or critical are nurse for 20 of those years. Currently, I am working as a hospice nurse.
    What are the degree requirement for nursing in Nigeria?
    I appreciate any and all help
    Thank you .

    Have you looked at the nursing and midwifery council of Nigeria? The application instructions and requirements for foreign educated nurses should be available on their website.

    Associate degree is not recognised in Nigeria. .its either three years Nursing Diploma or 4/5 years degree in Nursing
