Hi I was wondering if anyone know if it is much less competive getting into a MSN program if you already have a BSN vs ELMN.

If by ELMN, you meant "Entry Level Master's in Nursing" program, then, yes it is typically easier to get into a grad school program in nursing with a BSN than with a bachelor's degree in another field. But do remember that in addition to degree requirements some programs require specific relevant RN experience (i.e., ICU for CRNA, neonatal ICU for NNP, etc.). What program are you interested in?

Yes ELMN I meant Entry Level Master's. I am interested in the FNP program and have been a nurse for 2 1/2 years in ICU and Labor/Delivery,I will have more experience by the time I apply and start school. From reading the threads it seems like it is competitive to get into grad school so I was wondering if that is only for people who are not RN's.

There are only a few ELMN programs but there are many traditional NP programs. Looking at your background, I see no problem with you getting into an FNP program as long as you have a good undergraduate GPA. Some programs require GRE scores. Check with the school you are interested in and get first hand information about their requirements.
