Shocked to Success with Vital Signs Still Intact*
by Arlene Santiago-Tribbett, RN, BSN, CLNC
For the past eight years, I’ve been a home care and ED/trauma nurse. My nursing career had become unsatisfying, so I began searching in a new career direction. I thought about graduate school, but none of the programs seemed worthy of my time or money. Before becoming a nurse, I was a police officer, and the law always fascinated me. So when I saw an ad for Vickie’s CLNC® Certification Program in a nursing magazine, I researched the field and signed up for the Institute’s program.
I told him I charged $125/hr and needed a 50% retainer, and he gave me three cases with the promise of two more.
The CLNC Certification Seminar impressed me from the first day. Vickie gave away information so freely, and I experienced nurses from all over the country coming together in unity and fully supportive of each other. The seminar was so motivating that I regained the pride I once had for nursing. Vickie and her CLNC Certification Program did that for me.
The week after the seminar was like a dream. I had an appointment to see an attorney for personal reasons. I told him I was a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant and mentioned the services I provided. He stopped me in mid-sentence and called his associates into his office to hear what I had to say. “Where have you been?” he asked and explained that his firm desperately needed a qualified CLNC consultant.
I told him I charged $125/hr and needed a 50% retainer, and he gave me three cases with the promise of two more. He went on to say that he would introduce me to other attorneys who could use my CLNC services.
I am still in shock. I never expected any of this. That one week with Vickie was the most challenging, yet the most exciting of my life. Now, I actually have work in my hands. My life is headed in a new, exciting and profitable direction I could never have imagined before I attended Vickie’s CLNC Certification Seminar.
