Whatever you are comfortable with (and doesn't violate allnurses.com's rules). I just posted a topic looking for career change advice if you want to look that up. It's got my experience listed, etc.
Oct 3, '12MSAs are required for work comp settlements only at this time. There is no requirement to be "certified" in preparing or submitting them, although there are a number of companies who have invented "certifications" and then sell you the courses, the exam prep, the materials, the exam, and the recertification activities.
If you want good nurse-led MSA courses, there are links to two at the American Association of Nurse Life Care Planners website-- both of the people that teach life care planning also have courses on MSA. They will prepare you for the various credentials. Disclaimer: while I am an AANLCP member I have no financial interest in either of these courses.

Dec 3, '12I feel like a real fool, I fell for it hook line and sinker! Went all the way and chose her most expensive option, over $12000. I have the knowledge and the passion but can a LNC make it today?
