Legal Nurse Consultants are people who not only have a R.N., B.S.N., or M.D. credential, but have expanded their knowledge and received specialized training in law-related matters.
A LNC uses their healthcare experience, along with specialized CLNC training, to consult on medical-related lawsuits. They:
- Perform research
- Assist with discovery
- Identify standards of care
- Review medical records
- Prepare reports and summaries
- Locate expert witnesses
Being a legal nurse consultant is an excellent career choice for nurses not interested in working in a hospital. Some LNCs work in:
- Law offices
- Government agencies
- Insurance companies
- Private corporations
- From their home
