Nash is not that useful at MTTs - it will provide a decent yardstick to compare your move against but I don't think playing strickly Nash will be all that profitable. Luckily most players in MTTs are not great at adapting to the 20bb or less shove/call stages ans so the Nash calculated ranges don't fit accurately into the reality of MTTs usually you can choose better ranges.
That said the Nash values are a decent baseline to start range development from and so if not on a final table you should be quite close to winner tkaes all. At final tables ICM increases and this affects ranges a lot, to be accurate you would put in the prize structure if possible. In practice you probably just want to learn the winner-takes-all ie, chip ev ranges and use this as a guide to your further thinking about ranges.
Nash is pretty good to know in the HU stage but always do try to adjust to the opposition.
A better tool to use than Nash is SnGWizard this will provide info similar to Nash but you can adjust calling and pushing ranges to get a better feel, the quiz mode is also a good way to get your eye in fast. (Warning, it does take some work to learn how to get the most out of it).
