I just graduated with my BSN and would like to apply to Fall 2014 MSN programs. How hard is it to be accepted to MSN programs without any nursing experience at the time of the application? I will have almost a year of experience by the start of the programs, but the applications are due in Dec/Jan so I won't have much experience at that point and I'm not sure it would be appropriate to ask work supervisors for recs. Any advice or recommendations on applying would be appreciated!!!

It depends on the program. Some programs are open to accepting nurses without experience while others are not. I would go ahead and apply- what do you have to lose! Applying to a few programs can increased your chances of getting into at least one school.
