I admit, when it comes to my appetite (for life that is), I’m a greedy person. I have high expectations for my life and career and I plan on having them as long as I have a life. Without expectations and desires, we don’t have a life at all. I’m big on acting on our dreams, not just dreaming them.

In a previous Tech Tip I mentioned that I would soon be purchasing a new laptop for myself. Rather than talk about me, let’s talk about you. Do you want to hear about my new laptop? I didn’t think so. I’ll save the story of my trials and trevails for another Tech Tip. Instead, let’s talk about some desktop hardware specifications for my CLNC amigos who don’t need a laptop computer.
Approximately four months after becoming a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant I received a malpractice case involving the misdiagnosis of an intracranial aneurysm that left a 23-year-old patient in a vegetative state.

Our good friend, Willie Nelson (who just turned 80 on April 30th) once said, “Life is one long audition” and that adage applies to Certified Legal Nurse Consultants as much as it does to musicians. Whether it’s the reports you write or the opinions you communicate to your attorney-clients, you’re only as good as your last work product, interaction or, dare I say, performance.
The Internet can be a fun place, but like any city in the good ole US of A, there are good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods. While you can have too little security on your legal nurse consulting business’s computer, you can also have too much security. Security suites have come a long way from the days of stand-alone antivirus, firewall and other software. Today they’re often all-inclusive but are designed to run “on their own.”
I asked the CLNC Pros what they love about being a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. Their responses are both varied and similar. Here’s what they say.
Those of you that know me well understand that there’s only one thing worse than missing my two cups of healthy green tea in the morning, and that’s missing that one steaming hot cup of coffee that really jumpstarts my day. In my increasingly larger coffee mug is where the tower of terror used to stand. But no more. I’ve got a new vice − one that’s healthier and just as much fun. Instead of saturating my coffee with heavy cream, now I saturate it with 100% dark cocoa powder.
On June 21st, Spring will have finally sprung its last and Summer will begin. For those CLNC consultants who are still trying to get into the Spring spirit and sweep out the old in favor of the new (computer or at least new productivity software), here are a few recommendations.
