An increasing emphasis on the postgraduate education of nurses is a key not only to improving patient outcomes but also to meeting the demand for nursing school faculty, says Carol Brewer, a professor at the University at Buffalo's nursing school. It's important for the health system to support registered nurses' full scope of practice, she says. "Laws designed to protect turf that do not improve quality are not useful. The real issue is money -- loss of income for physicians who can bill for collaborating with nurse practitioners," she says.
