The field of Legal Nurse Consulting (LNC) is as deep and wide as you can imagine. LNCs are essential to any situation involving healthcare record interpretation. Among other things, nurses are needed to investigate, educate, and decode information that brings clarity to sensitive health care related situations. This dynamic role can include, but is not limited to, working with plaintiffs, defendants, vendors, or state departments. There are so many ways we can share our valuable knowledge as a legal nurse consultant. You can be an employee or entrepreneur and have the flexibility to make your own hours. No joke!

Have you ever wondered how nurses break into this specialty? Or what a day in the life of an LNC looks like? In just 2 hours, you can skip the line, eliminate rookie mistakes, and navigate the expected roadblocks. Join me as I walk you through the robust lifestyle of becoming a Legal Nurse Consultant and all the opportunities that it brings. Start your quest today.
