A Registered Nurse who then goes to and graduates from Law School and passes the Bar Exam to become an Attorney.
True enough. I am an RN who just graduated from law school in May, and am now studying to take the Bar exam at the end of this month.
I didn't go to law school because I didn't want to be a nurse anymore. I went to law school because it is something I always wanted to do, and because law and nursing complement each other nicely. During my time in law school, I spent about a year and a half clerking in the Public Defender's office. My nursing experience and ability to interpret and explain medical records was a real advantage. I think the combination RN JD will give me some options in both law and nursing that I might not otherwise have.
