Post-Baccalaureate Legal Nurse Consultant Certificate

Blend Health Care and the Law as a Legal Nurse Consultant

When health care practices meet the legal process — in medical malpractice, insurance fraud, personal injury or worker's compensation — legal nurse consultants play a key role by helping attorneys, judges, juries and other involved parties understand the facts of the case. Licensed RNs who hold BSNs can qualify themselves for this role through Wilmington University's Post-Baccalaureate Legal Nurse Consultant certificate program.

Put Your Clinical Nursing Knowledge to Work in the Legal Field

Our graduate-level legal nurse consulting certificate offers specialized education that empowers RNs to evolve with health care's challenges. Legal nurse consultants analyze and evaluate medical records, histories and testimony; explain clinical practices, concepts and terminology; and deliver informed professional opinions. These skills are valuable to health care systems' legal teams, law firms and insurance companies.

Specialize Your Nursing Skills on Your Schedule

The curriculum includes coursework that examines legal issues in nursing practice, philosophical and ethical questions in health care, and the clinical implications of forensic nursing. The courses are available 100% online, so you can complete your coursework and earn your certificate on your own schedule.

The faculty in our College of Health Professions and Natural Sciences is comprised of active health care practitioners who bring their on-the-job experiences and up-to-date knowledge of health care theory and methods to the classroom as well as to personal interactions with their students.
