I used to think that pharmacist salary in Nigeria must never be below N150,000 per month but my experience employing and working with the pharmacists of my clients have shown me how erroneous I have been with my assumption.
I have a client who told me of a pharmacist with less than 12 months post internship experience that they would readily pay 200,000 after service and I have seen a lot of pharmacists working for my other clients that I can swear deserve nothing more than N50,000 per month.
I have come to the conclusion that pharmacist salary in Nigeria must be based 80% on the ability of the pharmacist to deliver results for his or her employer. I have met pharmacists that once they come to work, will go into the pharmacist office and will not come out until close of work.
I have met several pharmacists working for my clients that almost every day I have to remind them to wear their lab coat, look into the patient’s eye while talking to the patient and most annoyingly to iron their clothes.
A client of mine recently was telling me that he is wasting money on his pharmacist because after one encounter with him, the patient would want the sales attendant to attend to them rather than the pharmacist.
I think that the best pharmacist salary in Nigeria should be reserved for those pharmacists who understand the importance of building their communication skill, reading up daily about the various disease states and the drugs for their treatment and most importantly working very hard to build their confidence level and develop their inter personal skill.
Any pharmacist who can be good at this deserves the best pharmacist salary in Nigeria. Those who cannot work on their communication skills, personal confidence and communication skill do not deserve to earn more than N70,000 per month.
I have decided to help pharmacists earn build their confidence with this video of a seminar I did for a client.
