    Vicky,

    Just found this article when searching this forum and it was inspiring. 2-3 years after finishing my ADN I pretty much gave up my ambition to be a nurse educator. Having just finished my BSN (after a nice 20 year break from school) nursing education seemed a completely reasonable objective. After investigating it a little more and reviewing my most favorite/least favorite BSN experiences I started investigating BSN to PhD programs. I'll be taking my GRE in a couple of weeks and planning to submit my applications to at least 2 programs in my State. Your article served to both frighten and excite me.

    Sure would love to see the part 2 you promised!
