How much do Nurse Attorneys make?

  1. Hi all,
    I am interested in taking my LSAT and becoming a nurse attorney. I have been doing a lot of research into this and think this is an excellent choice for me as I have been nursing for 10 years, have a wide array of experience, and really enjoy paperwork. I have not been able to find the salary for nurse attorneys. I am interested to find out if anyone knows an estimate.

    I am an attorney and Family Nurse Practitioner in Ohio. It really depends on your location and how hard you want to work, or if you work for yourself or a large firm. On average attorneys typically do not make near what you would think. I made more as an rn than many attorneys I know. FYI...I was an engineer, then lawyer, then nurse! Best of luck to you!

    Hello, I am a nurse attorney and struggling to find actually Legal work that has decent pay. In fact, I am looking to going back to school for my ARNP. Nursing is the best profession!
