Hi all, this is my first post here. :-) btw, this is such a great forum that I've utilized so much over the years for a variety of different issues- thank you! Now to my question....so I am interested in becoming a legal nurse consultant, and I would like to take some sort of training course as an intro to it. Since my employer will only assist with tuition at accredited colleges/universities that offer courses for credit, I cannot take any of the courses offered by private individuals (ie. Vickie Milazzo). Anyways, while in the midst of researching courses, I was wondering if I could just take a paralegal certificate course offered at a college instead of a formal legal nurse consultant program? I was having trouble finding legal nurse post-bac or post-master's certificate programs that were online, so I was wondering if a paralegal curriculum is similar in teaching the legal information (just without the nursing component)?
