Thinking of becoming an LNC

  1. Hi,
    I have been a nurse for 27 years and I am looking at the VM course. I have read different post and realize a lot of people have taken her course and liked it. Now, for the problem. I like to shadow people ,when I am thinking about a new job. I am looking for someone who is a CLNC and lives in Rockford Illinois. Shadowing someone before I have decided to change jobs, has always paid off. It saves me time and also prevents an employer from hiring someone who later finds out the job was a poor fit. I would greatly appreciate it. if anyone knows of someone who works around this area to email me. Thank you for all you help. By the way I don't know who moved my post the first time, but you seem awesome from reading your replys to other postings. I believe ,I read tht you said you are a LNC.It's a rare thing, in todays times, to find someone who still wants to help thier fellow neighbor. Thank you ....Whoever you are.

    Hello and welcome to allnurses.com and the Legal Nursing forum.

    I was the one who moved your post to a more appropriate forum and then posted on your thread. I've moved this post to its own thread for a better response, too.

    You can always contact attorny's firms to see if they have an LNC in their employ. Maybe you could shadow one of them.

    So, you are seriously considering doing the Milazzo program? Have you checked out the online program from the AALNC? There is a sticky thread (found at the top of this forum) with the information about the AALNC online program.

    Good luck with all of your plans and please do not hesitate to contact me privately and/or post here in this thead.

    Shadow first. I've said this in another post, and mean it. Before you spend thousands on a "certificate" that an attorney does not care about NOR require, just do it. I have 15 yrs in OB and was approached one day by one of our docs about reviewing a case with him, I sat down after work with him at a mexican restaurant, he paid, I ate, we discussed for 4 hours. It shocked me how much he learned FROM ME! Only nurses can really "get it" when it comes to the charting, staffing, procedures, and REALISTIC patient ratios. I recieved $5,000 2 months later and did not even expect it! That started my new part time gig. 3 yrs later, and referrals like crazy, I have my business cards from Vista prints basically for free, and have made over $75,000 without really trying. So it is a very lucrative career direction change, and I truly believe that we are a patients advocate TO THE END. Best of luck.
