    I write to commend your excellent adherence to the APA format in your presentation. You also demonstrated a good understanding of the quantitative analysis of data.
    I wonder whether the results of your findings would be different if your sample population comprised a higher number of male nurses. I agree that in Sub Saharan Africa, nurses are predominantly female. How would male nurses reaction be to the question on compensation?
    Good work done

    Thanks for your write up.
    My only concern (in the part of the world were the research was carried out) is that it is not only a matter of having good polices by management. The problem is mostly in the implementation of the good polices and sustenance.
    Good work and best regards.

    Absolutely interesting and professionally done !
    I have few comments though:
    1. How can organizations appropriately manage dissatisfied employees in order not to impact negatively on the employer?
    2. What are the core determinants of job satisfaction?

    Best of luck.

    Hello fellow researcher.
    Well done for excellent work Okam Mwakaego;
    Why outlining suggestions and giving opinions in your background of the study? I thought you should only state the gaps in Background of the study.
    How do you create research questions if you have already given suggestions and opinions about job satisfaction in the background of the study?
    Are you able to justify the difference between the background of the study and the introduction of the study?
    Why conceptual framework and theological framework together? Can you create a theory without a concept? What is the difference between conceptual frame and theological frame?
    Why specific objectives for number 2 and 3 are not correlating with research question number 2?
    Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
