UIC Direct Eentry MSN to Become an NP

Hello Everyone,

I'm strongly considering applying to UIC's Graduate Entry MSN program as a career change. I have a BA in history but am taking all of the required prerequisites right now. My ultimate goal is to become a Family NP. From what I understand, UIC's program gives you an MSN and allows you to take the NCLEX to become an RN. My question then is; would I need any additional schooling after this program in order to become an NP? I am completely ready and willing to work as an RN before applying for NP positions, my only concern is whether or not I would need to enroll in another program before getting an NP licese. Thanks in advance for any info anyone can give me.
