Nail head pushing through my ceiling?

Have someone else push up the drywall next to the nail pop. Then sink a couple of drywall screws into the stud on both sides of the nail hole a few inches apart. Center punch that nail pop in deeper, then apply patch compound over all the holes. Sand and feather once dried, use texture paint primer, and ceiling paint to finish.
