    Dear TennRN:

    Are you near Nashville? It is a huge medical town - there must be work there for you. Lots of attorneys also. You can also try networking through Nashville Health Care Council. There is a lot of medical - related work in Nashville, lots of healthcare attorneys there, so there is work to be had, you just have to really aggressive in networking.

    Just wondering, do you have to have a BSN to get your CLNC? Also, how much experience does a nurse have to have to be a legal nurse? I have worked for the last 5 years in a law firm, and have an interest in the legal field, but nursing is my first passion.
    I bet being a legal nurse would be really interesting and very challenging.

    Hello, TexasAngel,

    No, a BSN is not required to practice as an LNC. To become CLNC, you would need to take the VIckie Milazzo course. The CLNC is a registered title through them.

    You need only be RN. Having years of experience in the field of nursing is a great background for the LNC. As for how many years experience? That is an individual choice. I cannot answer that. As with any profession, experience is the key to success.

    Your experience in a legal firm will be good for you as well.

    I hope you do decide to become an RN and go on to become CLNC.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for replying Siri. I have been astonished by the unending possiblilities a nurse has. I fulliy intend to look at LNC option more in depth. I would prefer an area of nursing where I am not having to stick people with needles constantly. :chuckle That is an area I will have to overcome, and I know I can.

    I've been a L&D nurse for 10 years, and have seriously considered legal nurse consulting. I've also considered going to law school, but at this point in my life, I'm not ready to devote more time to school (just finishing my MS in Healthcare Administration). I received information for the Milazzo Institute, but I do not know anyone that attended, and I wondered about its credibility. It is nice hearing from people that have attended. Thanks for the information!

    Hello, alacek.

    It's a good career choice. Hard work. Have to start thinking with a business mind in order to make it work. Heck, you already know the nursing part, just need to sell yourself and learn the ins and outs of the business world.

    Let me know if you need any additional information on the V. Milazzo course. I will be here, or, you may pm me.

    I am looking into Vicki's course now too. How is your business doing at this point? Is it really possible to earn $125/hr like she claims? Seems like a lot of money to not be guaranteed a paycheck. Any insight would be helpful.
