I think a BSN is more than enough to start your Nursing career. The MSN programs here (although maybe the programs in your area don't) require that you work as a RN for at least one year before getting into the MSN program.
Also, like one of the other posters said, you'll need to decide what type of MSN you want - do you want to be NP? If so do you want to specialize in Family Practice, Women & Children, etc. or do you want a MSN in Education so that you can teach nursing students? I think it's a good idea, required or not, to work a little before you put even more time & money into a MSN program. Here in DFW, there is a MSN in Education that you can get completely on-line, and it only takes 1 year full time (or up to 5 years part-time).
Whatever you do - it should be what you feel is right for YOU!!!:spin: I don't have a MSN, but from what I've heard other people say, it's "easier "to get the MSN than the BSN - at that point you've learned a lot about Nursing, know how to study for Nursing exams, can critically think,etc...
Good Luck & God Bless!
