Overview

Over the past generation, the practice of legal nurse consulting has grown to include areas such as life care planning, risk management, and administrative law, as well as taking on a more diversified role in both criminal and civil law and courtroom proceedings. First published in 1997, Legal Nurse Consulting, Principles and Practices provided professionals in the field with an authoritative reference that helped further define and grow their roles. Used in LNC programs across the country, it introduced RNs to the foundations and practice areas of legal nurse consulting.

Maintaining the high standards of the previous edition of this bestseller, the current editors have fully revamped this reference to match the education and reference needs of today’s LNC. Adding a wealth of new information, the book has been split into two volumes: Legal Nurse Consulting Principles, designed for students, and Legal Nurse Consulting Practices, a solid professional reference that practicing LNCs will consult again and again.

Legal Nurse Consulting Principles takes a pedagogic approach in providing content for use in core courses. It defines and elaborates on the role of the LNC in a number of arenas and adds new and expanded information covering new technology and new trends in healthcare and law.

A comprehensive textbook for students:

  • Defines the role of the LNC in areas ranging from maintaining records, case management, and research to insurance regulations and forensic investigations
  • Provides samples of forms used in practice
  • Uses case studies drawn from real-world examples
  • Presents chapter summaries that reinforce key concepts
  • Offers references, additional reading, and links to resources for further study
  • Contains test/ review questions at the end of every chapter
  • Includes an acronym section and a glossary
  • Those wishing guidance on the practice areas of LNC should check out the companion volume, Legal Nurse Consulting Practices. These volumes are also available as a set.
