Legal Nurse Consultant Reviews

What is it like working as a Legal Nurse Consultant?

Legal Nurse Consultant in 32935:
"Very challenging and exciting."
Pros: Opportunity to own my business but prefer an "in-house" position for consistency. Looking forward to bringing a positive attitude and energy to any opportunity upon our relocation back to the states after being deployed to Saudi Arabia for five years due to husband's deployment to Riyadh, SA.
Cons: Cases can be hard to recruit and market. Inconsistent income.
