However on the other hand if her heart is not in to care for the patient and she's only being an RN to "get experience" she could do more damage than to care for the patient.
You gotta LOVE being a nurse in order to do nurse work well.
With that said I cannot see how you can be a legal nurse without knowing the works of the trade. We all know from nursing school
that they teach you certain methods and we all know that on the floor we don't always do it that way. You need to know what practices are safe, what practices are tricks to get the job done (but may or may not be in the patients best interests) and what practices are improvements over what we've learned to do in nursing school.
When you do legal nursing you'll be given charts and scenarios of what happened which is why the party is suing. On paper it may look like the nurse error-ed. However in practice with experience you'll know that if the nurse did A she would have caused more harm, doing B did result in death but usually C outcome happens and that method A also is not practical in the alloted amount of time.
Legal nursing is fun. According to my friends and they share with me a lot of scenarios but you can't always go by records or the books. You need life experiences.
If I were you I'd work on a med surg floor with telemetry, or ICU, PACU, etc. Get a feel of the pace during slow and emergent situations, etc.
