Resigning from proprietary education: A grounded theory exploration of the quitting decision
by Nicely, Stephanie, Ed.D., Northern Kentucky University, 2015, 128; 3707310
Abstract (Summary)

This grounded theory, action research study examined the decision making process that led former nursing faculty of a proprietary college in the Midwest to resign their positions with the proprietary institution. Semi-structured interviews with five former full-time nurse faculty were used to gain a deeper understanding of experiences and influences that contributed to the participants' decisions to leave. The study provides a theory that identifies and explains the different elements of this decision making process and the experiences that led nurse faculty to the quit decision.
