What’s expensive? That’s a question I’ve asked an RN (or two) who has expressed that starting a new career as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is expensive. What’s expensive? Having worked with registered nurses for 33 years in the legal nurse consulting industry, I believe it’s expensive to stay in an RN job at the hospital that you don’t love. It’s expensive to underprice the value of who you are as a registered nurse. It’s expensive to short-change your education if you are serious about becoming a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.
