Patient Safety to LNC?

  1. I've been kicking around the idea of becoming an LNC. I currently work in Patient Safety (official title is Patient Safety Specialist) for a hospital system and I have been doing this for about 4 years. I love the investigational aspect of this job - it's like putting a giant puzzle together. I see a lot of what I do - chart review/documentation reivew, establishing timelines of care, identifying areas where there were opportunities for improvement, looking at standard of care - to parallel some of the work of an LNC.

    I'm curious if anyone else has had the experience of going from Patient Safety to Legal Nurse Consulting and if you would have any advice.

    Or if anyone would have insight on how the two different specialties/jobs (Patient Safety/LNC) compare and contrast?

    Thanks.
