NYSC Allowance for Medical Doctors, Nurses, and Others

Do you know that the NYSC allowance earned by medical doctors, nurses, and other health workers differs from that of the rest? This is a wonderful realization for you we guess.

Every year, the Federal Republic of Nigeria through the National Youth Service Corps recruits thousands of corp members to serve the nation.

NYSC program has been in existence since 1973 and was initiated by the Yakubu Gowon regime as an avenue for the reconciliation, reconstruction, and rebuilding of the nation after the civil war.

This program is highly funded by the Federal Government and corp members are been placed on a monthly stipend. Although the amount received by active corp members varies depending on the services rendered.

The current allowance for most corps members is N33,000 monthly. This sum is paid directly by the Federal Government, through the NYSC.

However, corps members’ Place of Primary Assignments (PPA) and their state of deployment often provide an additional stipend.

It is of great interest to know that Medical doctors, nurses, and other health workers who are rendering their services in the NYSC earn an allowance that is relatively higher than others because of the arduous nature of their job and the risk they are being exposed to at work.
