Advise your friend to go for nursing..


Gone are those days that we decide based on passion, now it is strictly based on finance and job security. Except you don't have the brain for it..


If I had known, I would have studied medicine at all cost...

Don't know why I am tempted to write this here, maybe because I gave up such opportunity 13years ago which I still regret today.


So from experience, I am telling you to go do that nursing now if you don't want to regret like me because you may never get job for life with that Bch certificate of yours Sadly and unfortunately.

Her brother has given her the best advice, however, she is an adult who has the right to do whatever pleases her. I think she's still basking in the euphoria of the "graduate" tag.


Modified: let me explain a bit.


University based nursing leads to d award of RN and BNSc (and at times RM, RPHN).


BNSc, like almost all other undergraduate degrees is an academic qualification while RN is the professional qualification.


However, UK's demands are for professional nurses(not academic nurses) hence the equal recognition given to both.


Now, school of nursing is better in her case because, 3 years is 3years there. In exactly 3 years, she would be done and start processing her UK things. Her other option if she so much hate School of Nursing is going back to the university for BNSC, and ASUU will be smiling @ that rn 


Once she's in the UK with d School of Nursing certificate, she can run her BNSc there in a year or so while working. Foreign degree  


Moving to the UK to study Nursing (of whichever version) or for MSc. will be like moving a student whereas moving with school of Nursing RN is like moving a worker. You need to see how some trusts pamper migrant nurses.


Like I said earlier, she is an adult with absolute right to her choices

There are seasoned bankers in Nigeria that went to UK, Canada or US and switched straight to nursing. She should accept advice of someone who loves her over there or gather money to go do msc public health(wch is very expensive & competitive).

PLEASE LET HER APPLY FOR NURSING SHARPERLY.

MY WIFE STUDIED ZOOLOGY,SHE IS IN SCHOOL OF NURSING PRESENTLY.

Unless your friend is passionate about science or research, I’ll advise she takes the advice of that person and go to nursing school if she plans to relocate here, although that’s still dependent on whether she has passion for healthcare. If she’s rich enough and doesn’t want to study in Nigeria, she can build up healthcare experience and apply to accelerated Masters in Nursing programs (Pre-registration) in the UK. It’s 2 years instead and she can register with NMC as a UK RN after graduation.


When you talk about maybe there being another alternative with her biochemistry degree, I did biosciences as well and a bioscience masters here. I was able to get 2 job offers, one as a lab person in the NHS and another as a research assistant. I took the research assistant post cuz it’s at the No1 Uni here in the UK (UniofCam).


However I’ve found research / being confined to a lab to be boring, and tbh most people going down that route would have to spend longer years getting a PhD, else you’ll not be able to get a higher up position. However Nursing seems more interesting to me, reason why I’m starting an accelerated nursing program in 3months. Most Nigerians like me too studied Microbiology / Biochemistry / Cell Biology / Molecular Biology and the likes as a first degree because we didn’t meet the cut off for medicine or nursing or dentistry or the other medical courses.


So if that’s the case for your friend, she should grab this opportunity for a career in healthcare. It’s totally worth it (IMO).

She should follow her brother's advice, unless she wants to remain in Nigeria and keep begging for urgent 2k


Why would anyone study Biochemistry in Nigeria?


People start be mindful of what they go to the Universities to study in Nigeria


It's no longer enough being a graduate; what one studies/studied now matters a lot.

What a read!

I'm sorry about the family ish, it's always like that  sometimes we find succor more from strangers than friends.


Well, I think you don't have close friends, maybe you're suffering from a lack of support system, which is understandable.


But to progress you might need something like an Accountability Partner, someone to keep you in check with your goals, give you needed encouragement and advice sometimes.


Also, hope you're not too far from God....


Regarding the book, have you heard of Amazon Publishing? Tho I haven't gotten started with it but I've heard great stuff about it and I think you should consider it for your book.


I'm not a coach, but I might be able to provide some friendship support if you want.

Not just Bank job sir... Nearly every salaried job outside Top management position is nothing but slavery and gradual descent into poverty.


Even doctors, pharmacists, engineers, etc, are no longer spared. The thing is to have something extra giving you the needed financial uplift, or like the Op, going into something that will truly pay you with less stress.


Stop calling your former banking job a job. its corporate slavery. aka slaves in suit and tie


I'm happy for you and thank God for you. theres nothing like freedom from Slave masters that call themselves bank executives. Gone are the days when we used to envy/admire men and women working in the bank. They looked so elegant, sharp and smart. now they are not different from labourers doing hard labourous jobs under a.c's and With machines


However op please be weary of broke, entitled and rude slay queen's that don't have money to pay but want to give you sex in exchange for their transport fare or those that have perfected the skills of accusing you of rudeness or sexual harassment. similarly avoid girlfriends of yahoo boys for the sake of your sanity. congratulations once again

Congratulations


Your level will change in some few weeks..


Don't relax... Work hard to secure a second car and give it to a trusted driver...


You can probably earn total 400k/m


My lady banker friend is depressed, desperate to leave her banking job,but she's struggling to find an alternative as she's the main bread winner, and can't just quit.


The thing is wearing her down mentally.


Some banking jobs are something else.
