Instilled with incredible drive by her parents, Eva Aguilar earned her BSN, and acting on a promise to her sisters taken too soon, Eva continued further to earn her MSN.
Tracey Bixler earned the BSN when her employer, Geisinger encouraged her to go back to school – but she wouldn’t stop there, now she’s earning her MSN too
