One Strategy Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Can Learn from Attorneys

Unless you’re in the ICU, the medical world moves slowly. If you’ve ever accompanied a friend to the emergency department (ED), and sat for hours, you know what I’m talking about. Doctors’ offices are much the same way. The closest they come to an on-time appointment is moving you out of the lobby/waiting room and into an examination/waiting room (to decrease the appearance of stacked up patients).

Attorneys on the other hand understand that time is money and an appointment is an appointment. Don’t take healthcare habits into the attorneys’ world. A 3:15pm appointment means just that to an attorney. You never get a second chance to make a first impression with an attorney-prospect as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. Never risk being be late for that initial meeting. If you are, there probably won’t be a second opportunity.

Savvy CLNC® consultants know that on-time means 5-10 minutes early. It’s better for you to wait in their lobby than for the attorney to wait for you in his office.

  1. Leave early and anticipate all kinds of obstacles such as weather, accidents, car won’t start, decide last minute to change clothes, etc. Bring a book or get something to drink somewhere if you arrive too early.
