The Nursing Law Center  offers two live courses: Legal Aspects of Nursing and    Legal Nurse Consulting (LNC).  Both courses are taught by Nurse Attorney Laurie R. Elston B.S.N. J.D.  Ms. Elston has over 20 years of legal experience as an attorney in Washington and California. Throughout her career she has represented health care providers in medical malpractice actions and disciplinary proceedings. She also served as a Municipal Court Judge Pro Temp. She also has extensive teaching experience, and taught personal injury law at the University of Washington.  She is a frequent lecturer to health care provider groups on a wide variety of medical-legal topics.                                                           
Legal Aspects of Nursing Course is a live course that gives you over 7 hours of expert information on the laws that govern the practice of nursing in California. As a nurse you need to understand both California state laws and some federal laws and how to they apply to your practice. This course will explain how the laws apply in everyday clinical situations, using actual nursing cases. In addition, you will receive a comprehensive manual of the key laws governing the practice of nursing to use as a future resource.  You can register for this course on page 2.

One nurse who recently took this course said
These 8 fun filled hours were extremely informative, practical, and all wrapped up in a beneficial and concise package.  Nurses should invest their time and effort in this class to empower themselves to deliver safer care and to further our careers."     Ray S., BSN CCM, California.  Another nurse said: "Nurse Attorney Laurie Elston gave us powerful insights into protecting our rights as nurses, as opposed to some lawyers do."   Director of a California Nursing Organization, 2014

Legal Nurse Consulting Training Program is a live 3-Day Training Course so you can ask questions and get answers as we go through the information in the AALNC textbook (they do not offer a live course). Our course also includes a home study portion and individual telephonic mentoring sessions. It is taught by a practicing medical malpractice Attorney and an experienced LNCC so you get all the expertise needed. You will also receive a notebook with all the templates and forms you need to get started. This course prepares you to take the AALNC certification exam.  The total cost of our course is $1,895 (other live courses cost over $7,000, and require annual fees).              You can register for the course on page 3.

Further, we limit our training courses to 10 nurses per course so everyone gets personal, one-on-one training, and individual interviewing practice. Our course also covers marketing and how to operate a business, which are not covered by most online classes. 

Legal Consultations - Do you need legal advice? Whether you are facing action by the Board of Nursing, having a problem at work, or have a negligence or personal injury case, Attorney Elston is available to help you with your legal matters. You can schedule your confidential consultation on page 5 of this website. One nurse said after a consultation: "You are a true nurse advocate - thank you!  Nurses - don't sign anything unless you are represented by an attorney...."   RN CA
