A Legal Nurse Consultant is a Registered Nurse (RN) who has experience and knowledge in a nursing specialty.  A Legal Nurse Consultant Certified  (LNCC) has unique medical industry insight that is invaluable to legal professionals.  Many times legal issues involve health, injury, or illness and require the expertise of an LNCC. 

In 1997, AALNC established the American Legal Nurse Consultant Certification Board (ALNCCB) to administer the Legal Nurse Consultant Certified (LNCC) program. The LNCC certification program is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS).

The purpose of the LNCC program is to promote a level of expertise and professionalism in legal nurse consulting. Legal nurse consultants must meet the eligibility requirements, which include consulting experience, and achieve a passing score on a multiple-choice examination to earn the LNCC designation. As with many clinical nursing certification programs, the LNCC credential is designed for those who have demonstrated experience and knowledge in the specialty.
