Nursing Wages and the Value of Educational Credentials.
Mennemeyer, Stephen T.; Gaumer, Gary
Journal of Human Resources, v18 n1 p32-48 Win 1983
Evidence on nurses' wage rates is examined to determine whether higher credentials command a premium in the marketplace. Also examined are private rates of return to determine if higher nursing education is a worthwhile investment for individuals. Findings reveal that employers pay modest premiums for enhanced educational credentials. (Author/SSH)
