“I called because Vickie was there in my mind saying, ‘Nobody but you is responsible for your success. If you want it, go out and get it.'”
If You Want It, Go Out and Get It*

*Results are atypical and may vary from person to person.
Vickie, thank you so much for speaking out with passion for our professional evolution. I also thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting all of “you” into your program.
I resigned from my clinical position on January 13. It was time for me to go to the next level of professional practice. I was deeply committed to succeeding in my next adventure. I ordered your CLNC® Certification Program the next day and finished it on February 4. I took the certification exam on February 24.
On February 25, on a hunch, I called the local DA’s office about an arrest I’d seen in the paper. I consulted with her on the phone and gave her a three-page “what to do next” note, again for free just to get exposure. She was so impressed, she asked for my resume and fee schedule. I called because Vickie repeatedly said, “Go out and get the business; make the call.”
Next, I sent my introduction letter to several attorneys. I got my first paying case from one of them on March 17. Again, I called because Vickie was there in my mind saying, “Nobody but you is responsible for your success. If you want it, go out and get it.”
It is a credit to Vickie as a mentor and motivator that I pursue this new dimension of nursing. Thank you so much Vickie for helping to make it possible and for keeping the light burning strong and hot. I wanted you to know what a difference you have made for me as a person and as a committed RN.
