The AALNC course is very well organized and gives you a thorough base of information to begin your LNC career. It is an online computer program that you complete at your own pace. The course follows the legal nurse consulting text, Legal Nurse Consulting, Principles and Practice, 2nd edition
. Through the lecture and presentation, reading and additional required assignments, and additional supplemental resources, each module expands upon specific chapters of the text. The material is presented in a very professional way that is easy to comprehend and apply.
You have the option to complete the 8 modules in any order, and upon successful completion of each module and the post-test, you receive a certificate of completion. This is not the same as being certified by the AALNC. For more information about AALNC certification, go to the following links:
Because of the way the program is designed, the time of completion will depend on the time you have to dedicate to it. Some of the modules are more complicated than others and will therefore take longer to complete. The entire course has been approved for 104.5 Nursing Contact Hours by the Illinois Nurses Association. The number of contact hours per module varies from 7.3 to 18.7 hours.
As I said before, the course gives you a good comprehensive base of information.
