A heartfelt thank you and congratulations for giving me the tools to change not only the direction of my career, but the direction of my life as well. Vickie, you are truly an inspiration. You not only touched the nurse, you touched my inner being. I have come away with the knowledge, energy, beliefs and support for great success. I am enjoying each and every step of this endeavor. Having your continued mentoring available greatly adds to my confidence.
Two years ago, I was sick and tired of the job I had. I had a nonexistent self-esteem and was going nowhere fast. Your teaching has changed my life. I am now in business and love everything I do. Thank you so much.
Thank you for all you have done to promote and encourage CLNC® consultants like myself. You are a model of what a CLNC® consultant should be through your professionalism, first-class presentations and attention to detail.
You will quickly realize a financial and professional return on your investment of time and money. Capitalize on your years of experience.
Every time I take one of your courses, I learn and adjust accordingly. Each adjustment has proven to be profitable.
I have been an independent CLNC® consultant for six years and I owe a great deal of my success to you. You are so inspiring. You empower me to get out and fulfill my dream. Thank you.

The information I received has been a goldmine. I'm as busy as I can be.
Vickie imparts so much for so little. She does exactly what she teaches – she gives more than we pay for.
Unlimited income potential – something that isn't available in traditional nursing roles.
The Institute has changed my life and given me the opportunity to own my own business. You can be as successful as you want.
Cheryl C. Bockholt
Vickie's ability to be down to earth, yet a model of professionalism comes across not only in person, but throughout the Home-Study program. You have changed my professional life forever.
If I'd had an instructor like Vickie in college, not only would my grades have improved, but I would have enjoyed it, too! She's great.

- How many attorneys need the services of a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?
According to the Houston Chronicle, 25% of attorneys deal with medical-related cases. They rely on specially trained CLNC® consultants to help them win cases for their plaintiff or defense clients.
Few attorneys know how to read medical records or understand the terminology and subtleties of healthcare issues. While the attorney is the expert on legal issues, the CLNC® consultant is the expert on nursing and the inner workings of the healthcare system.
As a CLNC® consultant, you apply your knowledge of medical, nursing and health-related issues to make the attorney's job easier, more efficient and more effective. Your professional expertise as an RN and a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant qualifies you to review and interpret relevant medical records, prepare chronologies, screen medical-related cases, assist with discovery and provide dozens of other CLNC® services.
||According to the American Bar Association Market Research Department, in 2011 there were 1,245,205 attorneys in the U.S.
- Do I need a BSN degree to become certified?
No, a BSN degree is not required. You only need an active RN license in the U.S. or Canada to complete the CLNC® Certification Program.
- How many years of RN experience do I need to practice as a CLNC® consultant?
I recommend at least 1 year of nursing experience. I was an RN for 6 years when I pioneered the nursing specialty of legal nurse consulting.
- Is there a market for CLNC® consultants in my area?
Yes, there are 1,245,205 attorneys in the U.S. and anywhere there are attorneys, there is a thriving market. Many CLNC® consultants have successful businesses even in rural areas. They work from home and communicate with attorneys via phone and email.
- How many clients will I need to succeed as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?
Most CLNC® consultants surveyed say that 3-5 attorneys keep them busy full time. The CLNC® Certification Program teaches you how to market to attorneys and easily build your client base.
- How much do Certified Legal Nurse Consultants charge?
Most independent CLNC® consultants charge up to $125-$150/hr. This fee is cost-effective for the attorney who would otherwise have to pay an MD expert $750/hr or more.

No, your experience is invaluable regardless of your nursing background – med-surg, OB/GYN, psychiatry, etc.

Yes, you may start part time to supplement your RN income and become comfortable with your role as a CLNC® consultant as you gain attorney-clients.
- Do I have to testify?
No, most Certified Legal Nurse Consultants only consult behind the scenes, educating the attorney about the case and helping prepare for deposition and trial.
- Do I need nurse-paralegal training?
Absolutely not. I urge you to avoid any nurse-paralegal programs. They do not prepare you to work as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, but rather as a legal assistant, which is equivalent to a nurse's aide. Every day we get distress calls from RNs who feel they have been misled and that they have wasted thousands of dollars on a dead-end paralegal program.
You can complete the CLNC® Certification Program in 6 days and learn everything you need to succeed as a CLNC® consultant. Our program is cost-effective because we don't waste your time on irrelevant legal courses such as legal research, civil procedure, probate, etc. You will use everything you learn in the CLNC® Certification Program. As a CLNC® consultant, you will be able to charge up to $125-$150/hr as a professional consultant, rather than $16-$18/hr as a paralegal.
- How long does it take to complete the CLNC® Certification Program?
You'll be done in only 6 days at the CLNC® Certification Seminar or 40 hours with the CLNC® Online Certification Program. Choose to experience Vickie live at the 6-Day Seminar or review the Online Certification Program as often as you like to master every detail.

Yes, you may apply for a Career Training Smart Option StudentSM Loan from Sallie Mae with payments as low as $75/month.

Your professional expertise as an RN and a CLNC® consultant qualifies you to review and interpret relevant medical records, prepare chronologies, screen medical-related cases, assist with discovery and provide dozens of other services.

No, while many CLNC® consultants practice independently or work in-house for attorneys, other CLNC® consultants provide consulting services to insurance companies, government agencies and private corporations. The opportunities are unlimited.

Absolutely, yes. You have succeeded as a nurse, and nurses really can do anything! We make split-second decisions that make the difference between life and death for our patients.
