I am thinking of applying to JHU's MSN generalist program. Any info as to where this degree would take me will be appreciated. Thank you.

It will prepare you for the same entry level nursing positions that ADN and BSN graduates are prepared for, and you will be competing with them for jobs. A generalist-MSN prepared RN might move up "through the ranks" more quickly than some others, and you might have a head start on getting a post-Master's certificate in some specialist concentration in the future. But a generalist MSN will prepare you for licensure and the same basic, entry-level nursing jobs that any other pre-licensure nursing program does.

In saying that, I don't mean to disparage the JH program in any way. The school is v. well-respected, and I'm confident that you would get an excellent education there. Best wishes!

Thank you elkpark. While I like the idea of having a JH degree, I am concerned that the generalist program is just starting.

I confirmed that if you finish their generalist MSN, you will be eligible (based on grades, etc) to roll right into a practitioner program there-- FNP, CNM, etc...
