I got 265Q because I only set aside couple of weeks of studying. But I met male & female coworkers who passed at 75Q.

Nurses, of all people, should understand what anecdotal information is.

men get paid more in nursing...that's the real inequality here

Please list your sources. Nurses can’t be paid the same if they don’t work in the same facility, don’t share the same specialty, and don’t have the same years of experience. Other than that is just false propaganda.

Not at union facilities where pay is based on a set scale. Also I passed in 75. 

Men still get paid more -- per hour -- at union facilities where pay is based on a set scale.  I know because I've been married to two nurses, both with less education and less experience than me in four different union facilities and in each and every instance, the male's hourly rate was higher.  I did our taxes; I saw the pay stubs.

While I have only anecdotal evidence, I'd say it isn't false propaganda.  I worked in the same unit with my ex, hired the same day.  I had a Master's to his diploma and five additional years of experience.  Union hospitals, set pay scale.  They still paid him more.  And then there was the first nurse I married -- we both had BSNs, but I had significantly more experience -- we worked in the same unit, I had a year of seniority in the facility -- and he made more.  I did the taxes; I saw the pay stubs.

"Traditionally, men have gravitated toward acute care (/directory/acute-care), high-paid specialties and to management/administration, which are all higher paying," he said. "Based on this survey, it seems clear men are being paid signicantly more than women in the profession doing comparable work. I would call on employers to assess their current workforce for gender gaps and raise salaries to create parity."
One important aspect of earnings is men are more likely to negotiate their salaries, the survey found. While 43 percent of men "most of the time or always" negotiate, only 34 percent of women do so, which may partially account for the pay gap in healthcare and other professions.

exactly my point, pay gap is a myth nowadays. This is nothing but a political tool to fool the useful idiots.

Why didn’t you file a grievance? Pay, is set ( at union facilities) by a set formula that looks at years experience, with add on for unit( ex ICU), shift (ex nights and weekends), plus degree and crendentials ( ex CCRN, plus BSN). However, the protection, of a union means little if the employees do not exercise their rights under the contract.

Your quote actually stated that the pay gap is not a myth. Which was my point.

That survey by it’s own wording considers institutions where individual variance can occur because of negotiation. Union facilities follow a set formula. Now it might be the case (even at a union facility) that men choose to work more night shift or more in the ICU, but this is self selection bias not discrimination.
