How to get started as an LNC? Nurses who are considering careers as LNC sometimes have a limited view of what this involves: being an expert witness at depositions and trials or finding such experts, and—the biggest obstacle for many—having one’s own business, possibly with employees.
They may also believe they have to invest thousands of dollars in education before they can make a dime.
Kristin Stiner, who began work as an LNC in 2019, provides an entirely different model. She got an extensive education in this field with ever formally completing a course, and she works at home as a subcontractor while homeschooling her young daughter. She loves her work and her life. She urges those who want to become LNCs to not feel that only one path to becoming a professional exists, and she emphasizes that your clinical experience is worth more than you realize.
She further advocates that when you are first starting out, it can make sense to take whatever work is available and to temporarily accept a lower starting rate. What matters is getting the practical education.
Kristin, who when younger dreamed of becoming a detective, has found her dream fulfilled through working as an LNC. Like many LNCs, she particularly enjoys the forensic aspect, and she emphasizes the importance of not approaching a case with established assumptions. Whether you’ve worked as an LNC or are just beginning, Kristin’s enthusiasm for this career will inspire you.
This podcast will help you to identify your particular Inner Critics (you can have more than one) and how to loosen its hold on you. It will also introduce you to a compassionate coach who can take you further on this journey.
