Hello, and welcome back to Just Answer.

I might be able to help you with this, but can you please specify what "MSN" stands for, as it can have multiple meanings.

 

What year of college are you in and what is your major?

Thanks for all your additional detail.

Hi again, and thanks for your patience.

Different schools offer different options in various programs, to earn this degree. You can see a sample of one here, from Indiana University:
http://nursing.iupui.edu/degrees/msn/degree.shtml

Qualifications for admission to an MSN program will also vary, but typically will include an undergraduate degree--B.S. in Nursing. and being an R.N. with clinical experience in this field. Just for your reference, here is an example from the same university's admissions department:
http://nursing.iupui.edu/degrees/msn/apply.shtml

I am interested in working in this field in order to expand my abilities and future goals in nursing, in order to help all people in need, especially those in need of specialized care.

The best part about working in this field is having the ability to make a difference in the care and lives of patients. There is so much more you can do, having your MSN, after completing your B.S. in Nursing, and you can choose your specialization. The salaries are also higher than that of R.N.

The worst parts of working in this field are increased responsibilities, making many more important decisions and increased pressure to be a leader to more people.

In my opinion, it would very advantageous to go on to earn your MSN after you graduate from college as an R.N. It will open up many more opportunities for you in the nursing field and you could be a Nurse Practitioner and even open your own practice. Many people are going on for this higher degree in this field and the job opportunities are fantastic.

I wish you much good luck in your future educational endeavors!
