Our Chapter has been an industry leader for more than 25 years. In 1987, nurses in the local legal community joined to socialize and share ideas. Since then, our members played a key role in the founding of the national organization and contributed to the definitive text, Legal Nurse Consulting: Principles and Practice (all editions) and the Journal of Legal Nurse Consulting. We've also presented on local and national levelson every topic regarding LNC practice. We're nurses in independent practice, law firms, risk management, compliance, insurance, government, education and more.
