you guys really need to chill out and not take things so seriously really. anywho. this was an experiment for my thesis on Nursing unions and strength in numbers. my theory is based in two parts rounded up by the theory that US Nurses are a stronger group hence why they are paid more, more respected etc and UK Nurses are weak etc thats why they get paid less.
Thanks anyway. i appear to have gotten a first (an A) for a well written and insightful if not unusual study, which will go towards what is my second PhD.
Is it just me, or is anyone else a bit hopeful that someone
from Allnurses.com made it perfectly clear that they will not be the platform for unethical "studies?" Clearly here, informed consent did not take place, as well as a whole other slew of violations of the Belmont Report, the Nuremburg Code, etc as outlined for ethical research.
Although I'm confused why a doctoral candidate would be working on a thesis rather than a dissertation, but anyway.
I would HOPE that rather than pointing the finger at bonafide Allnurses members for biting back at what turned out to obviously be a thread meant to provoke, that they would take a hard look at the post above and make sure this doesn't happen again.
If this very serious issue has already been addressed, I think we'd like to be reassured that we are in fact, safe here, and that this type of unethical practice has been deterred.

Can we NOT say anything negative in any thread lest it be CLOSED??? *****
Gone are the days of fun, intense disagreement?
The reins are too tight these days.
I didn't see anything in that thread, along with others that have been closed lately, that warrant its closing.
If anyone complains about any thread....will it be closed?
.....so, in theory....if you can't please 100% of the people 100% of the time, would that mean....... in time, all threads would be closed and there would be no Allnurses? Get my point?
(old lady voice): "Back in the day, we could actually give our opinion. Young wipper snapper's these days, well, they just don't have it so good."
Anyhoo, Susy, I wouldn't worry about this so-called Jay-Z PhD. I think the only way this person could achieve such honor is by pulling it out of a Cracker Jacks box. He/She doesn't appear to be professional in the least. I think he/she is just pulling your cyber leg....so to speak.
I did enjoy seeing you come back out of yer shell, though.
