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.

The real issue is money -- loss of income for physicians who can bill for collaborating with nurse practitioners," she says.
