Judges, attorneys, and other members of the legal community increasingly rely on the expertise of professional nurses to guide them in situations where law and healthcare interface. Registered nurses' holistic perspective on healthcare, standards of practice, and nursing care make them uniquely suited for the role of LNC. The LNC has achieved professional recognition, in part through the creation of a national organization, standards of practice, a code of ethics, and a credentialing process. Formal educational programs are available to assist nurses in acquiring skills required of the LNC. The LNC may work in law offices, or consult independently to assist the legal community. The purpose of this presentation is to describe how nurse clinicians, educators, and leaders can create a visionary role within the community as a legal nurse consultant (LNC). During this presentation, the learner will be introduced to the concept of legal nurse consulting, and to the many and varied opportunities now available to LNCs. The requisite leadership and entrepreneurial skills required for development of a consultant role will be elaborated. Participants will be provided with specific strategies for moving from the "I can't", to the "I can" perspective required for a successful consulting endeavor. Guidelines for beginning a LNC practice will also be discussed. Because of the wide variety of LNC roles, clinicians, educators, and leaders may all offer valuable services to members of the legal community. Examples of possible consultant roles for direct care nurses, clinical nurse specialists, educators, and leaders will be presented.
