I would love just a basic outline. I've already done some research and haven't come up with a concrete way of going about doing this. I know that you don't have to be certified to start in the field and I also know that there are programs that will train nurses in this specialty. I guess what I'm asking is after say you complete a program how do you go to approach an attorney or law firm for work?

If you enroll in a program, the program will discuss marketing to attorneys and law firms. Also, there are LNC-based businesses that specialize in helping new LNCs market their services (for a fee, of course). Best of luck in your new endeavors!

Hi,

Is it steady work? I am looking into other avenues in nursing due to burnout.

Thank you

I don't even think you have to be an RN to be a Legal "Nurse" Consultant, at least not where I'm from.

Wondering if any of you have pursued this career path and how has it worked or not worked out for you?  I have been researching this like crazy and would love feedback from those of you brave enough to jump in. 😀

I have been a legal nurse consultant for many years. I work in a defense law firm.  I enjoy the work.  However, it's a difficult field to get into, and it's not as lucrative as some of the LNC schools tell you.  You also have to be detail-oriented, have strong verbal and writing skills, and know how to use certain software, such as Microsoft Word.

Do people ever work primarily in the clinical setting and accept part-time contracts as an LNC? Or is that not actually a thing... just curious
