From the Paper:

"I returned to school because it is my goal to obtain not only my BSN but also my Master's Degree. I haven't yet decided if I want the Master's in administration, research, or teaching, but I want to eventually get off the floor and into a less physical role in my nursing career. Having started this later in life, my body is not used to the assault it faces throughout each shift, and I have a lot of arthritis. I need to further my education so that there are more roles available to me in the nursing profession that are not as physically demanding."
