Bar News - April 6, 2007


Internet School for Legal Nurse Consultants Established

 

A new school has been created by the Washington Online Learning Institute (WOLI) that prepares registered nurses for careers as Legal Nurse Consultants (LNCs). This new type of professional will provide guidance to lawyers through medical training plus legal knowledge.             

 

The seven-month course is taught by professors who are licensed attorneys. Students gain an extensive knowledge of medical claims litigation and medical malpractice issues. Tuition includes textbooks, 24/7 access to WOLI Interactive Online Classrooms, downloadable audio lectures, and access to Westlaw.

 

The US Dept. of Justice sees the primary role of LNCs as evaluating and analyzing information to give informed opinions to legal professionals on the delivery of health care and the resulting outcomes. The National Nurses in Business Association forecasts a strong demand for LNCs, based on the shortage of registered nurses and the high cost of using physicians as legal consultants.

 

WOLI is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools and is the nationís oldest Internet-based school for paralegals. For further information, go to: http://www.woli.com/.
