Unfortunately, you are VERY UNQUALIFIED, to do Legal Nurse Consulting. You have NO practical experience in bedside nursing, or ANY nursing experience at all.
Attorneys hire nurses for their education, experience, and expertise. You may have a nursing education, but, you have none of the experience that an attorneys needs. Medical Malpractice cases are VERY expensive for an attorney to litigate. There are ALOT of out of pocket expenses that an attorney has to pay up front, and out of pocket, before he/she, and take the case to trial. And there is NO guatantee that they are going to win, and recoup their losses. I can promise you, they they are not interested in a new grad with no experience, and do not want to pay someone $100/hr,+, to learn on the job. Attorneys hire nurses because THEY have NO medical education, or experience, so why would they hire a new grad, who also has no experience. That is like the blind leading the blind.
There is more to Legal Nurse Consulting, that reading medical records. What is the usual practice on a particular nursing specialty or unit? What is the usual course of recovery of a particular disease, surgery, the complications, etc? No, Medical Transciption is NOT BEDSIDE NURSING EXPERIENCE!
Again, you have NO experience that an attorney would be interested in as a new grad, with NO experience, other that a supervised, student nurses clinical.
I am sorry that you are not happy about having to do, "floor nursing", "pay your dues", and obtain credible, hospital experience, that my include working nights, weekends, holiday, etc. That is the life of a nurse. You should have researched the nursing profession, say, following a nurse for a day, before you took the plunge and went to nursing school.
Unfortunately, the, "nice jobs, with better hours", are usually reserved for nurses with bedside, nursing, experience, not nursing student, Medical Transcription", experience.
You are going to have to re-evaluate your career goals, and decide what you want to do in nursing. I can assure you, that at least one year of bedside nursing, is going to be a requirement. Sorry!
