Can a new RN graduate become a legal nurse consultant without any clinical experience?
Dear RN Graduate,
Yes. I have even known some student nurses who did some level of consulting. What is valuable in this specialty, even at your level, is the ability to navigate your way through a medical record, your knowledge of medical terminology and your general understanding of the delivery of care and disease processes.
Contact the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (www.aalnc.org) for additional information and resources related to this specialty.
