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.
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.
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.
