- by jlasrrn Aug 25, '06I took a course in legal nurse consulting - what i was hoping to find was a job helping another LNC or working for an attorney doing research, chart organization etc. rather than have an independent practice. do you think that's realistic?
- Aug 25, '06 by madwife2002Quote from jlasrrnI think that is very realistic, I too was hoping to work with another LNC and have some irons in the fire. I know there is an Attorney in Tucson who was looking to employ an LNC, so they are out thereI took a course in legal nurse consulting - what i was hoping to find was a job helping another LNC or working for an attorney doing research, chart organization etc. rather than have an independent practice. do you think that's realistic?
- Aug 25, '06 by jlasrrnnow, how do you go about finding those jobs, and how would they be advertised do you think?

I am a member of the AALNC and was contacted by an Attorney who read my information on there and asked did I know a nurse who would be willing to relocate to Tucson to work for them full time. They did request BSN as minimum qualification. There are so many advantages of being a member of a Professional Organisation.
I dont know what salary they were willing to pay, I just know they werent willing to pay what I expected . Another way would be to send your resume to some Law Firms and see if they are hiring.
- Aug 30, '06 by jlasrrni was a member of AALNC for 1 year and didn't get any response from my listing in the LNC locator so I let my membership laspe. I did enjoy the meetings though, but didn't really find any work from them. i have a child with cp, so i really need to get something from home. i am frustrated because all of the job leads eventually turned to nothing, and it seems alot of LNC's are in the same boat.
- Sep 13, '06 by mksmomSimilar situation here. Have completed the LNC Course through UGA, which indicated there would be leads for internships if GPA was >95. I worked very hard to achieve this and was told in the end that portion of the program had been discontinued. The course was very tough. I have joined AALNC as well, but am looking to work alongside another LNC to begin with. Maybe there's a business opportunity for someone to set up a service. There is one I found: www.RoseCliffordInternships.com but it is pricey.
- Sep 13, '06 by MijourneyMadwife2002, is it harder to work in a lawyer's office or consult? I was alway under the impression that working in a law office would be very treacherous as opposed to working as an independent contractor or consultant. In my opinion, the mindset of so many lawyers seems twisted. What's your opinion?
- Sep 14, '06 by madwife2002I have thought about a lawyers office but they dont always want to pay enough money. I did get an enquiry and when I asked her to match my wages from the Hospital, they said I was too expensive, and they had asked me to relocate to Tucson. My thoughts were that I would work for the lawyer for a year.
