Other than going through Vicki or another course to get certification, what other qualifications might you need to succeed as a legal nurse consultant? Do you need to have critical care experience? Do you need to have many many years experience as a nurse? I am interested in this field. I have, however, only been a nurse for 4 years......in ortho and in the ER. I have a BA in English from way back. Am just wondering if this would be enough to pursue the legal consulting avenue.....guess I also am worried about finding work/benefits/etc.
Do any of you folks keep your nursing jobs and do this on the side?
Thanks for any info and insight you may have.
