There is no official board or accreditation for Legal Nurse Consulting.
Don't be fooled by certifications or courses claiming that they are an
official governing body for all of Legal Nurse Consulting or that they are accredited by some specific Board or governing body. There
are no universal standards for Legal Nurse Consulting, so any claimed accreditations are unrelated to Legal Nurse Consulting and will not make a difference in your success.
Each organization is responsible for their own certification standards.
A certification is only as good as the organization offering the training and certification. It is the organization's responsibility to maintain their certification and enforce the standards of that certification. Click here to view the LNC STAT Standards of Practice.
