Legal Nurse Consultant Training Course
with Center for Legal Studies
This exciting program prepares medical professionals for a career in the legal field as legal nurse consultants. Building on your medical education and possible clinical experience, this course provides nurses with fundamental skills necessary to advise law firms, health care providers, insurance companies, and governmental agencies regarding medically related issues and to appear in court as expert witnesses. The course teaches legal concepts related to the health care industry, as well as the role a legal nurse consultant might play in litigation areas such as medical malpractice, toxic torts, product liability, personal injury, wrongful death, criminal law, and workers’ compensation. Any nurse interested in entering the legal field can benefit from the education provided by this course. The course is also open to anyone interested in the field of forensic testimony and medical-legal issues, but participants without an nursing background might not be able to take the LNCC exam after graduation. Legal Nurse Consultant Certified (LNCC) is a discretionary test separate from this training course that experienced registered nurses graduating from this course may decide to sit for. LNCC test eligibility requirements are discussed during this training course; however, nurses graduating from this course need not take the LNCC in order to practice as legal nurse consultants.

Successful graduates will receive a certificate for 42 contact hours of nursing continuing professional development from CLS by Barbri that they may be able to use to fulfill continuing education requirements
Manage Stress & Build Resilience/Surviving Stress - live via Zoom
with Carole Freeman
This class is not about learning a single breathing trick. It’s about correcting a dysfunctional breathing pattern and replacing it with emotional health and wellness. More than 90% of people who suffer with chronic anxiety (or stress) have breathing pattern disorders (known as Dysfunctional Breathing). The normal response to stress (anxiety, frustration fear), involves a breathing pattern of shallow, upper airway, open mouth breathing, with tightened abdominals, designed to help us run from a burning building or fight off an attacker. If we are under chronic stress, this breathing pattern becomes a habit as our ‘default’ breathing which is not good because it stimulates the brain to perceive more stress and anxiety. At this point, this ‘default’ breathing pattern is working against us and is known as “dysfunctional”.
