Description

Over the past generation, the practice of legal nurse consulting has grown to include areas such as life care planning, risk management, and administrative law, as well as taking on a more diversified role in both criminal and civil law and courtroom proceedings. Used in LNC programs across the country, this two-volume set introduces RNs to the foundations and practice areas of legal nurse consulting, helping them to further define and grow their roles. The volumes are also available individually as Legal Nurse Consulting Principles and Legal Nurse Consulting Practices.
