Quote from chromoflage
I am a male nursing student in the Philippines and I am currently making a thesis with my groupmates in "continuation of nursing education for unwed pregnant nursing students." Yes, in here, unwed pregnant nursing students are advised to quit or expelled on the grounds of immorality.
I am needing of everybody's help in finding a journal or an article I can cite written by somebody credible that mentions an actual unwed pregnant nursing student doing just as well as others.
I need this so that I can submit a proposal to revise our school's sanction of making these students stop their nursing education.
Since the policy is based on what your school and probably society in the Philippines considers moral vs immoral I doubt an arguement that says she can do just as well will be sufficient to change the rule. The rule says she is immoral not that she can not make it though school.
I respectfully believe you need to aproach this from a sociological perspective and show how this is not immoral or setting a bad example for patients.
Since I assume the Philipines is a largely Catholic nation (??) I would use examples within that faith to demonstrate that such woman are indeed moral and responsible. If you are dealing with a CAtholic Nursing school all I can say is good luck. Again research and find catholic schools that do not condem a woman simply because she became pregnant while still single.
If it is truly an argument about wether she can make it though school examples are so common in school within the US and western europe that it has been largly unessary in receint years to research or publish the feasablility of a single parent completing school. Thousands are simply living proof.
If this is the case try to find articles about working or student single parents. However, since I suspect that it is as you said a moral issue then a feasability argument is not likely to prevail.
