Why Take Our Legal Nurse Consultant Course?
Are you a nurse looking to expand your practice? Legal nurse consultants provide assistance to a variety of professionals in law firms, government offices, and insurance companies. You’ll analyze health care facts, issues, and outcomes for those in the legal and health care professions and act as a liaison between the legal and health care communities.
In this course, you'll learn from local health care and legal expert, Alexa Schneider, PhD, RN, FNP, LNCC, who will share her expertise teaching the weekly course. The UR School of Nursing Legal Nurse Consultant course:
