Hello.
Looking to change from Nursing to something else.Just wondered if anyone on here works as a Nurse in a Law Firm?
I have seen an advert for one near where I live and wondered what experiences anyone may have.Thank you.

Not me, but my mum did this for a while. She advised the firm on whether or not to accept medical negligence cases. I think she quite enjoyed it, it was much less demanding than nursing.

Thank you. I am knackered! Looking for ways to use nursing skills without the 12 hour weekends bank hols etc

I was imagining you sticking plasters on the lawyers after board room punch ups! Made me laugh.

I had a friend who was a nurse who retrained as a clinical negligence lawyer but didn't enjoy it because mainly she acted for claimants against the NHS.

However please don't think that working in a law firm means less hours than shifts in the NHS although you should get Christmas off. Both my DH and I (both lawyers) are frequently involved in cases/deals that require overnighters, late nights, weekend working and client calls until late in the night at home. On the plus side though the pay is better!
