The CLNC® Certification Seminar Made My Dream of Owning a Legal Nurse Business a Reality*
by Michele R. Groff, RN, MSN, PHN, CLNC
Owning my own business had always been a goal of mine, although I did not know what shape would finally emerge. My experience in clinical nursing spans over 25 years, from Medicare hospices to home healthcare. In my last position as a director of home health and outpatient nursing services for a hospital system, I was exposed to medical records review and realized I could reach my goal as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.
Since nursing has given me so much, I strongly agree with Vickie’s perspective. As an advocate for RNs, she warns us not to fall into the role of paralegal.
I looked at the different programs available and even checked into several university programs, which were all paralegal-based. Then luckily, I saw an ad for Vickie’s CLNC® Certification Program, which emphasized using my nursing experience and applying it to the field of law. This seemed to be a perfect fit for me. Since nursing has given me so much, I strongly agree with Vickie’s perspective. As an advocate for RNs, she warns us not to fall into the role of paralegal.
I enrolled in the CLNC Certification Seminar and felt immediately connected. Anyone starting out in the field of legal nurse consulting needs Vickie’s guidance, business savvy and valuable marketing tips. Vickie’s CLNC Mentoring Program has been critical to my success as a beginning CLNC consultant. Purchasing all of Vickie’s educational materials has also helped get my practice off the ground. I’ve used each and every one.
Vickie inspired me so much that I immediately quit my full-time position and started my own consulting practice. As an independent CLNC consultant, I get to work on a variety of cases, and I also get to work as a testifying expert. I especially love the medical malpractice cases. Right now, I have 13 cases, and they all came to me by word of mouth.
