The primary purpose of this pilot study was to examine the relationship of barriers and facilitators to Alabama healthcare workforce development through educational mobility among recently graduated Associate Degree nurses. The sample consisted of ASN graduates of a college in Alabama from 2003-2004, with a 35 percent return rate (n = 13). The findings of this study added support to previous studies (HRSA, 2002; Rapson & Rice, 1999), with 15.4 % of respondents currently enrolled and 54.5% intending to enroll in a formal education program. These findings point to a large population of nurses who would like to return to school but who may have too many barriers preventing their return. Bivariate findings included intent to apply to a RN to BSN program in the future negatively correlated to the influence of schedule of courses (r = -.63, p
