Hello trmr and welcome to allnurses.
If you are interested in finding out more about Legal Nurse Consultants, you might want to check out the Legal Nursing Forum http://allnurses.com/forums/f29/
There are those posting in that forum who are also thinking about this career as well as those who have already made this their career. I'm sure you will find not only answers but encouragement from those members.
I will be glad to answer questions you have regarding legal nurse consultants. You may either post in the Legal Nurse Forum or send me a private message (PM)
Again, welcome to the site.
