Nurses find their way into the legal nurse consultant profession in a variety of ways. Learning about these different journeys can greatly benefit those wondering how to find an entrance into LNC work.
Beckah Swan shares the story of her transition from clinical work to working in an LNC business. Her journey began when she had a nursing school professor who was also a lawyer. This woman mentored her in terms of a pathway to becoming an LNC.
When Beckah applied for a job in an LNC company, she felt inadequate in terms of non-nursing skills, for example, writing a report, but she was fortunate in receiving further mentoring and guidance in transitioning from personal injury cases to medical malpractice suits. She got thorough critiques of her reports and was gratified as her skills improved.
Among the aspects of working in an LNC firm that she most appreciated was being able to draw on the specialized knowledge of other nurses. She knows that this advanced her learning.
Overall, the experience has prepared Beckah for opening her own LNC business. She has currently returned to bedside nursing while working as an LNC part-time. Her ultimate plan is to have yet another transition to full-time LNC work.

As a legal nurse consultant, you face a lot of competition. How can you convince an attorney to choose you over the many other LNCs seeking clients?
The answer is branding: giving people a reason to choose you because they feel you offer something they can’t get anywhere else.
In How to Heat a Fiery Brand for Your LNC Business: Tips to Be Noticeable, by Pat Iyer, you’ll discover how to define and express your unique identity, the special gift you offer your client that no other LNC can.
It may be
● exceptional customer care,
● attention to detail, or
● going above and beyond what the client requests.
Learn what your gift is and use it to position yourself in the LNC world. Then you will attract attorneys for whom price is not an issue because your branding makes it clear that hiring your services will yield rewards beyond price.
