I graduated from a four year degree nursing program and immediately went to work for a busy hospital in the trauma department. After about five years, I decided that I wanted to slow down but still wanted to continue working in the nursing field. One of my co-workers told me she was going to school to become a legal nurse consultant and this interested me a lot. I went back to school to get my legal nurse consulting certification and have come to really love my job now. On a typical day, I review medical records for attorneys and then give them my opinion as to medical causation. Other times I provide written reports to insurance companies or other agencies as to my medical viewpoint regarding accidents. Some cases I work on might involve medical malpractice, personal injury, or even other medical workers who think their rights have been violated. My day is never boring and I am so glad I decided to go back to school.
