Do you feel that you have the ability to help resolve conflicts between people? Are you able to listen impartially to both sides of a dispute? If so, you may have a future as a mediator. And if you don’t, you can learn a lot from this podcast about how understanding the mediation process can allow you to help your client, the attorney.
An LNC, mediator, and mediator trainer, Jaime Gerrie, shares what she’s learned in her career as a mediator. She emphasizes that as nurses, we’ve been trained to act as mediators. We may mediate between physicians and patients, fellow nurses, and other members of the medical community.
As LNCs, we have familiarity with a wide range of medical-legal issues. This makes mediation a natural role for us to consider. It’s important to understand that neutrality is a principal aspect of mediation. The mediator’s job is to listen to both sides, as well as study body language and other subtle indications about how well the mediation is going.
The non-mediating LNCs may often find themselves in a mediation setting. While they may advocate for their clients, they can play valuable roles as observers and take their clients aside and recommend paths toward reconciliation of an issue.
There has never been a better time to consider this career. With the mounting backup of court cases and the high cost of conducting a trial, wise attorneys will consider engaging in the mediation process. Listening to or reading this podcast may open you up to a new, rewarding career.
