Has anyone thought of going to law school to become a lawyer specifically aimed at defending nurses? Is there such a thing. I was reading some of the posts of nurse up before the BON and not being able to afford legal counsel. Makes my blood boil. Then it got me thinking. Maybe there is a place for an affordable nurse attorney. Someone who charges reasonable or sliding fees (like in the range of 30-50/hr) for nurses w/o malpractice insurance. I imagine the bread and butter would be from malpractice insurance companies for defending nurses in lawsuits (probably doctors too). Just wondering if such a job exists.
