About Legal Nurse Consultants:
The legal nurse role is versatile, and this type of consultant can work in attorney offices or independently in their own home or office. An LNC can be found providing services for government entities, product or drug manufacturers, in hospitals and a multitude of other facilities. Services are focused on saving attorney time by providing case screenings, assistance with depositions, interrogatories, life care planning as well as customized for the attorney needs. The LNC can prevent expensive litigation that is unfounded, and can highlight areas of the medical records which prove damage and causation. Only a nurse can testify as to the standard of nursing care.
An RN licensure is required to practice as an LNC, and certification and training is offered for business, marketing and networking. Attorneys may also opt to train and hire the nurse from the bedside to the desk at a legal firm.
Legal nurse pioneers have set a high standard for excellence and professionalism, and support each other through master mind sessions, as well as subcontracting with other consultants.
The most popular courses are offered by the Vickie Milazzo Institute, JD Dolnick Nurses Lounge, Erica Leach Crown Legal Nurse Biz School for Nurses, Pat Iyer has very insightful legal nurse podcasts, and this learning counts toward the continuing education credits required to maintain RN licensure. Universities also offer different kinds of degrees for nurses who enjoy working in the legal arena.
Nurse consultants can also promote a legal practice by hosting exhibits with marketing materials for their firms.
