    I know a few nurses here in the US whose MANs are not recognized by their facility. However, the MSN is widely accepted here.

    MSN. This is my first time hearing of a MSA. Here in the USA majority of advance practice nurses have MSN. I feel a MSA may be a conflict in regards to unfamilarity and may halt academic/clinical positions for you.

    Hope this helps.
