What is a Nurse Attorney?Register Today!
- by GivingLove Jun 29, '09Im new here. What is a nurse attorney?
- But for what reason? They dont want to be a nurse anymore? Or do they stilll do nurse work? Please explain to me? Thanks
- They do it for several reasons, I'm sure.
Just like if someone is an RN and decides to go to med school to become a physician.
Or, is a CRNA and decides to go to med school and then become an anesthesiologist.
Many RN's decide they want to become a lawyer and go to law school.
I suppose some may work as an RN and as an attorney.
And, some who do this decide to work as a Nurse-Attorney and participate in cases dealing with nurses in litigation.
- This is kind of off topic, but what field do you work in and do you know anything about the CRNA's?
- You are a legal nurse assistant? What do you do?
- Jul 2, '09 by FilerookQuote from sirITrue 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.A Registered Nurse who then goes to and graduates from Law School and passes the Bar Exam to become an Attorney.
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.
