The Truth About Certified Legal Nurse Consultants
Don’t be fooled by certifications or courses claiming that they are a governing body for all of Legal Nurse Consulting or that they are accredited by some specific Board or governing body. There is no board or body that governs Legal Nurse Consulting, so any claimed accreditations are unrelated to Legal Nurse Consulting and will not make a difference in your success. Don’t sign up for so called “certifications” at great cost. Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is a misnomer and a vague term. Remember, you are already an expert!! There is no need for you to sign up for a legal nurse consultant certification.
