Legal Nurse Consultant Jobs
Some nurses that are interested in law become Certified Legal Nurse Consultants (CLNCs).
There is no particular course of study which must be followed in order to become an LNC, just a nursing background and a desire to work with legal issues. See the nursing jobs section of JobMonkey too.
Legal Nurse Consultants most often work for law firms and insurance companies, although some decide to go on their own as independent consultants, working on a contract basis. They usually aid attorneys in preparing medical exhibits for trial. The average LNC salary is similar to a typical nurse’s salary of comparable experience, which is usually higher than a paralegal’s salary.
