What is a Legal Nurse Consultant?

A Certified Legal Nurse Consultant (CLNC) is an registered nurse who has received specialized training and achieved certification as a legal nurse consultant.  This unique training qualifies them to provide insight from a medical-legal perspective.

The primary role of the Legal Nurse Consultant is to evaluate, analyze and render informed opinions on health care, the delivery of health care and resulting outcomes.  Distinct from the paralegal or legal assistant, the legal nurse consultant brings specialized education and clinical expertise to the medically related issues of the litigation process.
