If I take an entry level position at a pr firm in art direction, will it be harder for me to eventually get into advertising as an Art Director or do most people consider the skills transferable?

I think it'll be understandable. Given the current economic situation, future employers will be pretty empathetic to people who took non-traditional agency roles (eg in-house)

Talk to your managers at the PR firm and discuss how you can keep working on concepting (especially for stunts, etc) that will help build your book. When you're adding work to your portfolio, make sure they have more of an ad angle than a PR one.
