What's the difference between an MSN and a MAN?

Master's degree programs in nursing in the US are mostly about specialization. Majority of MSN's in US universities are actually training programs for two different groups of specialization: advanced practice nursing, and non-advanced practice nursing. Advanced practice nursing is an umbrella term used by Boards of Nursing in the US for Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Certified Nurse Midwives, and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists. Specific MSN programs are aimed at training nurses for these roles.

On the other hand, there are also MSN programs that train nurses in non-advanced practice nursing fields such as nursing education, administration, informatics, and newer Clinical Nurse Leader role.

That being said, I doubt if a fresh hire from the Philippines, even with an MSN degree, will have enough credibility and background experience to function in the roles I have described above in the US health care setting. I just don't see a US employer giving credit to a Filipino nurse with an MSN degree especially when US health care facilities are hiring foreign nurses in entry-level RN positions only.

i think MAN is more applicable for those who want to be clinical instructors or professors... MSN i think is more useful in a hospital setting... there are so many schools now that offer MAN.. UERM in sta mesa offers MSN and you can choose if you want the thesis or non thesis tract...
