I am a student nurse who will be graduating with my ADN in May and moving to the denver area.
I am definitely going to pursue an RN-BSN program as soon as possible.
While I was waiting to get into a nursing program I had taken all I could take and (wondering if there was ever going to be a spot open) I started pursuing a degree in microbiology. I obviously had to put that on hold when I got in to nursing school but found that I *really* had an interest in it.
I was just wondering if after I get my BSN, should I continue to pursue a degree in micro? Or some sort of grad school other than MSN if I'd like to get into a research position some day?
Any input would be appreciated! : )

I'm interested in a research specialty as well.
If you wanted to study micro in particular you'd probably be best served by getting a degree in that area. If you just wanted to do research in general you might be able to do that with a BSN, although an MSN is more usually associated with nursing research.

Research is a very broad area. Can you elaborate more on what type of research you would like to be involved in?
