Legal Nurse Consultant Training-Online



This program will prepare registered nurses (RNs) and physician’s assistants (PAs) for a career in the legal field as legal nurse consultants. You will receive a comprehensive analysis of the principles and practices of legal nurse consulting (LNC), with an emphasis on law and expert witness testimony. Building on the medical education and clinical experience of RNs and PAs, the course will provide you with fundamental skills necessary to advise law firms, health care providers, insurance companies and governmental agencies regarding medically-related issues, and to appear in court as an expert witness. Content will also provide a systematic review for those preparing to take the Legal Nurse Consultant Certified (LNCC) examination.

While most of the main subject matter will pertain to legal nursing standards, professionals in other health care disciplines (pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistants, etc.) may gain increased skills and knowledge of the medical-legal system to enhance their roles as service providers and functions as expert witnesses (however, participants without an RN background might not be able to take the LNCC exam after graduation). For more information about the LNCC exam, contact the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants at 877.402.2562.

This is an accelerated course. You will be expected to spend an average of about 10 hours per week reading and completing assignments. Please note that extensions will not be granted. You must attend at least 80% of the course, receive a minimum passing score of 70% or higher on all tests and assignments, and complete the course evaluation at the conclusion of the course. The curriculum is designed to comply with the educational guidelines specified by the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants. This course is the equivalent of 42 clock hours of study.
