Furthering the Professional Development of Legal Nurse Consultants

The primary role of a legal nurse consultant is evaluating, analyzing, and rendering informed opinions on the delivery of health care and the resulting outcomes.  Distinct from a paralegal or legal assistant, the legal nurse consultant is a unique and valuable member of the litigation team. Legal nurse consultants bring specialized education and clinical expertise to the medical-related issues of the litigation process.

The practice of legal nurse consulting is performed in collaboration with attorneys and others involved in the legal process.  Although, the independent practice of law does not fall within the legal nurse consultant’s scope of practice.
