I forgot to ad, that the AALNC also offers wonderful, low cost, books and marketing materials, how to start an LNC business, etc. The "LNC Core Curriculum", has all the information that you need to learn about becoming and LNC.
All of these materials are available on the AALNC web site, are VERY resonably priced.
I would investigate these, along with the other areas that I mentioned above. Community Colleges for marketing and business classes. You might also contact the Paralegal programs in the community colleges, and take some paralegal classes to learn more about the law, how it works in malpractice cases.
These classes are not meant for you to become a paralegal. You services will be more valuable to an attorney if you can assist with the Trial Prep, know understand how malpractice cases work, etc.
I took them and I enjoyed them immensely. It increased my understanding of the law. How can you help an attorney, if you don't know how and why certain things are done the way they are, what will help or hinder an attorney, etc? It allows your to communication with an attorne,y to be on the same page. Sort of. You at least have an idea what he/she is talking about.
Also, the attorneys who use their wives, legal assistants to review the medical records, you can try to point out that they have no medical knowledge, and are probably missing ALOT of stuff, that an experienced RN would not. Maybe offer to do a, "test case", at a reduced cost. If you go through cases that were reviewed by legal assistants, amateurs, and you find "things", that they missed, that are important to the case, you will have proved your point that your services are valuable. Point out that they are missing stuff that would ad to the value of their case, and that their clients will be eternally grateful if you found stuff, that ultimately provided them with increased money in a law suit.
