Henry David Thoreau said: “The world is but a canvas to our imagination.” If you don’t first care for yourself, you can’t see the world as an abundant canvas filled with opportunity.

I’ve always preferred consulting with attorneys who trust that I know what they need for their legal nurse consultant jobs. After all, I’m the professional consultant. It’s music to my ears to hear the attorney say, “Vickie, just do what you need to do on this case. I trust you know what I need.”
Many assume the most successful and happiest Certified Legal Nurse Consultants have had it easy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Some of our most successful CLNC consultants have had twins, brain surgery, custody battles and nasty divorces.
Thank you for making the 2017 National Alliance of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Conference Cruise such a success. I loved hearing how much you learned from the CLNC speakers and watching you network with your new CLNC friends. I had such an awesome time with all of you.
I love to personally mentor Certified Legal Nurse Consultants and am also privileged to share our experienced CLNC Mentors who consult with attorneys in different parts of the U.S.
The sun is coming up and it’s almost time to get off the ship and back to our legal nurse consulting businesses. It’s hard to believe that 8 days went by so quickly, but when you’re surrounded by some of the smartest and most successful legal nurse consultants in the country, time flies.
This morning was the most beautiful sunrise, and now it’s almost time to go to bed. Today is a sea day with a stop in the Bahamas and then we head for home. If you’ve never spent a day at sea, it’s an incredible experience.
Water to the left of me, water to the right of me and water everywhere I can see, including my glass. We must be at sea and today is our final day of ocean-going education.
Today we’re in Philipsburg, St. Maarten. This is sort of a schizophrenic country (so the psych nurses onboard will be enthused). The island is a mix of two cultures, the Dutch and the French.
I’m about to say three words that send every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant’s heart into AFib and they are, “duty-free shopping.” Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas is probably the duty-free shopping capital of the world.
