This online course will teach you everything you need to know to become a legal nurse consultant. Outside of nursing practice, legal nurse consulting is one of the most unique opportunities for nurses today. This role means you're more than a nurse; you're an expert witness that advises attorneys on the processes, procedures, and terminology of the medical field. Furthermore, this opportunity extends to other healthcare professionals as well. The legal field needs skilled healthcare professionals, so if you want to branch out, work remotely, or earn extra income, then you'll need to learn how to make your medical knowledge work for you.
