Or do you have to work as a nurse for some time before you can apply to grad school to get your masters in Nursing? I’m accepted to nursing school to get my BSN, but ultimately I want to be a Nurse Practitioner, can I apply directly into MSN programs?

Some places let you go straight, but I can guarantee you will make a much better NP if you get some experience at least 1-2 years. You only learn the top layer in nursing school; your real education comes on the job.
