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 Practices provides the professional LNC with a wealth of new content covering processes and legal considerations in a number of areas. It explores forensics work and administrative healthcare law including insurance regulations and fraud. It discusses keys aspects of Medicare, approaches to creating a life care plan, the legal aspects of advanced practice nursing, and key concepts related to pediatrics and neonatal care. The book also describes the competencies and necessary background needed for certification and provides advice on how to advance within the profession.

An authoritative reference for practitioners:

  • Includes samples of effective and ineffective cross-examinations
  • Explores evidentiary issues
  • Provides guidelines for setting up an LNC practice
  • Examines the role of LNCs in various fields
  • Reviews the healthcare claims process
  • Discusses case evaluation for a variety of special needs patients
  • Contains review questions at the end of each chapter to refresh practicing LNCs
  • Those wishing guidance on the basics of LNC should check out the companion volume, Legal Nurse Consulting Principles. These volumes are also available as a set.
