The AALNC, "Principles and Practice", is probably all you need. What do you need to learn? Do you really need to take an overpriced, "LNC Course", that tries to teach you what you already know. You can read medical records, read doctors' handwriting, you know what is supposed to happen in a hospital, you know what is wrong.
I did not take any course. I went on my knowledge, and instinct. The course that is given by the AALNC, is supposed to be really good. It is online, reasonably priced, and covers everything.
Remember, if you have never cared for a cardiac patient in the CCU, you have no business attempting to review that case, etc. All of the booklets, concerning different aspects of patients, diagnoses, etc, from the, "Amway of LNC", programs, will not buy you credibility with attorneys.
Why don't you ask her to use you as a consultant. And ask for a much higher salary. Did you ask her how much they pay their paralegals and legal assistants? I can promise you that they make alot more than $15 a hour. They earn more than that here in Spokane.
They are counting on the fact that so many nurses are disgusted with bedside nursing, that they will work for anything to be able to use their nursing degree and not have to go back to school. JMHO and my Ny $0.02.
