    Hello sirI,

    I am looking into Legal Nursing as a potential career change. I have read through many of the posts on the website. It is evident that this is not an adventure for the undetermined. Could you give a lay out of the upfront business cost, other than marketing, that you have encountered. I need a better understanding of what things are needed to run an efficient individual consulting business. I have no previous business experience, and would like a better view of the bottom before I dive in.
    Also, how often do you go to conferences to either market yourself or for professional education/enhancement to keep up to date on current LNC and law information.
    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

    Hi sirI,
    Thank you for all of your great info regarding LNC. I too was wondering what type of software you recommend to the CLNC when starting out. Thanks again for all of your advice and support! zella

    I think a career as an LNC would be rewarding and exciting!

    However, I am fearful that the attorney-client would present me with a case and I would be unable to find anything relevent to report!

    I have had six years experience in hospital/med/surg nursing and four-plus years in long-term care.

    If it's because there isn't anything there, you have done your client a favor because there will now be no money spent (wasted) on mounting a case with no hope of prevailing. I have told a lot of attorneys things they didn't want to hear, but they are glad they heard it early from me rather than late from the other side's expert(s).

    I am a family ARNP and an attorney has asked me to review charts in a malpractice case. How much should I ask per hour?
