The article focuses on a solution to the nursing faculty shortage devised by Patricia Starck, dean of the University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston. She suggests recruiting retired doctors as classroom instructors. According to Starck, the Retired Physicians Organization (RPO) is a very good source of the type of faculty that they want. She cites that doctors teach in the physical assessment laboratory and students are taught to execute physical examinations.
