Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Why Does Windows Tell a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Not to Delete a File?

Last week I explained to Certified Legal Nurse Consultants how to delete a file when Windows® won’t let you.

You know you’ve closed that particular Word document and you’re darn sure ready to delete it. You select the file, hit the delete button or right-click on the file name and select delete from the pop-up menu. Windows thinks for a minute and suddenly this box appears.

CLNC® Success Story: Don’t Just Tell Attorneys What You Can Do as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant – Show Them

A marketing strategy I teach in the CLNC® Certification Program is to show the attorney what you can do. Telling is not enough. Carol Ann McLawhorn, RN, BSN, CLNC used this principle with an attorney-client who hired her to consult on a case and set a budget. Carol Ann knew she could do more, so she did just that.
