This event will provide a mixture of LNC clinical, LNC practice, and LNC business education and mentoring to start or grow your beginning LNC career. The interactive virtual workshop is built to provide business and marketing tips to help attendees create a strong LNC foundation, on which to apply the nursing process to their LNC practice. LNC Jumpstart is structured with LNC faculty to provide educational content on subjects including what legal nurse consulting is and what it isn't, LNC work product overview, getting started as an LNC, and the LNC as a nursing expert witness and behind-the-scenes LNC. As part of this workshop, attendees will have an on-demand learning activity to attend on their own time and schedule, followed by the live, half-day virtual event. Attendees will have many opportunities to meet and interact in experiential learning with faculty, experienced LNCs, and new LNC peers.

By attending this program, attendees will:

  • Define the practice of legal nurse consulting and the roles of the legal nurse consult (LNC).
  • Examine effective approaches and tools for starting and maintaining a successful LNC practice.
  • Identify common LNC work products and methods to perfect skills.
  • Define the role of a behind the scenes LNC for plaintiff firm and defense firm.
  • Define the role of a testifying expert in a medical malpractice case.
  • Identify the four elements of a negligence case.
  • Examine how the expert nurse provides an opinion and what the standard of care is.
  • Explain the documents needed before a case review.
  • Discuss documentation that occurs after a case review.
  • Review preparation for deposition.
  • Discuss how deposition testimony differs from trial testimony.
