Botelho, Anabela; Jones, Cheryl Bland; Kiker, B. F.
Economics of Education Review, v17 n3 p297-306 Jun 1998
Compares registered nurses' wage profiles across three types of educational backgrounds (two-, three-, and four-year programs), allowing for alternative construction of the work-experience variable and correcting for participation selectivity and choice-of-credential biases. Results suggest that estimated wage equations are quite sensitive to the different specifications of nurses' labor-market experience. (25 references) (MLH)
