Nurses bringing skills into the legal world
Since the time of Florence Nightingale, over 100 years ago, nurses have been viewed as angels in uniform, a caring presence in the time of need. When someone is ill or hurting, a nurse if often the comfort at the bedside.
I remember when I started my career as a nurse, I was often astounded by how perfect strangers put their complete trust in their nurses.
Perhaps more than any other health professional, nurses are at the forefront of medicine and illness.
Every hour of every day, nurses are seen holding grief-stricken families, comforting lonely patients, explaining complicated procedures, making medicine seem less scary, and negotiating all aspects of health care.
It has been said nurses are the heart of health care. If this is in fact true, why is it nurses are only paramount within the walls of hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and physician offices? Consider for a minute having that same caring, knowledgeable nurse at your side during other aspects of life.
A Certified Legal Nurse Consultant does just that! CLNCs, as they are called, instill the same care, cutting-edge knowledge, and health care insight to the legal world.
Whether it’s medical malpractice, personal injury, worker’s compensation, or long-term care, CLNCs provide attorneys with the upper hand! Who else can understand the cryptic scribble of health care professionals, or nuances of nursing hierarchy?
If you’re an attorney involved in any type of health care related cases, or the average Joe trying to navigate a potential lawsuit, you need a CLNC on your side. Insist on having a CLNC reviewing your case!
“To do what nobody else will do, in a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through; that is to be a nurse.” Rawsi Williams.
