What is a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?

A Certified Legal Nurse Consultant (CLNC) is a nurse specialist who knows the standards of care. The CLNC can review, summarize and interpret the records, research the literature and locate expert witnesses from all medical fields.

The CLNC is first and foremost a nurse who lends professional nursing and medical expertise to those in the legal arena, and to the non-professionals in the hospital and insurance environments. The CLNC can render an opinion about the specific medical, health and injury related issues.

The CLNC can provide information about medical standards, policies, protocols and procedures, as a medical insider. Years of clinical experience enables the nurse consultant to be familiar with issues related to patient care, as well as with hospital and other health care system operations.
