This week on the podcast we have Laura Alessio, MSN, RN. Laura has done many jobs using her nursing degree. Currently, she is working as a Legal Nurse Consultant who conducts Defense Medical Exams (DME).
Laura completed a 2nd degree nursing program – but not a bachelor’s program. It was a master’s program. She already had a bachelor’s degree in another subject and found a direct entry MSN program.
Laura started her nursing journey in the public health arena. As a public health nurse, she managed a case load and was essentially doing nurse case management. She stayed in touch with a nursing school friend who introduced her to the world of worker’s comp case management iand she made the transition.
Laura eventually made her way into Legal Nurse Consulting – which is very popular these days! And for good reason. Legal Nurse Consulting isn’t just one job – it’s a massive umbrella under which there are MANY opportunities for nurses.
Today, Laura tells us about Defense Medical Exams (DME) that are conducted by Nurse Observers. Laura does just this….and she owns her own business in doing so.
