The American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants (AALNC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional enhancement and growth of registered nurses practicing in the specialty area of legal nurse consulting and to advancing this nursing specialty.
Founded in 1989, AALNC provides networking opportunities, educational advancement, professional development and support certification through the American Legal Nurse Consultant Certification Board (AALNCCB).
The legal nurse consultant is a licensed, registered nurse who performs a critical analysis of clinical and administrative nursing practice, healthcare facts and issues and their outcomes for the legal profession, healthcare professions, consumers of healthcare and legal services, and others as appropriate. With a strong educational and experimental foundation, the legal nurse consultant is qualified to assess adherence to standards and guidelines of healthcare practice as it applies to the nursing and healthcare professions.
The American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants recognizes a responsibility to other professional organizations with which we are aligned, in particular, the American Nurses Associations and the American Bar Association.
The primary role of the legal nurse consultant is to evaluate, analyze, and render informed opinions on the delivery of health care and the resulting outcomes. For over 20 years, legal nurse consultants have acted as collaborators and strategists, offering support in medically-related litigation and other medical-legal matters.
