Letter: NHTI’s overly harsh penalty
Re “A question of ethics” (Sunday Monitor front page, Dec. 9):
I wonder if the Monitor would like to pursue this more fully; I think it would be great if it did. The appeals process doesn’t seem at all timely, and the administration of the School of Nursing at NHTI seems callous as to what the multiple effects of their decision can be.
Heather Stickney’s action probably did warrant a correction of some sort, but the penalty seems overly harsh. How often does the appeals board rule in favor of the student petitioner?
Nursing as a profession likes to talk about erasing the culture of horizontal violence. It would be nice to see that exemplified at the college level.
