ABSTRACT
Discusses a study conducted by American academic Linda Aiken, published in the "Journal of the American Medical Association," which suggests that patients are less likely to die if they are cared for by nurses educated to the degree level. Denial of the notion that care given by nurses not educated to degree levels is substandard; Debate in Great Britain about the pros and cons of nursing becoming an all-graduate profession; Suggestion that people with degrees develop a higher level of critical thinking.
