Tom’s Tech Tip: Do Something Special for Your Spouse – Today (or for Valentine’s Day)!

After 23 years of marriage it’s more challenging to come up with something special for my spouse. By special I mean that wow experience – the one that takes her breath away and gets me one or two husband points. Special is going above and beyond fixing the display on her dual monitors, debugging her Outlook installation or setting up a darknet so she can communicate with other CEOs about issues and topics well above my pay grade.

How Do You Derive Your Opinions as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?

I’ve always been opinionated and I caught on fast that an RN job inside a hospital was no place for this mouthy, opinionated, New Orleans gal. Opinions helped me birth my legal nurse consulting business, grow the business and thrive in a business that I still love and enjoy 32 years later.

I am thrilled to share that two savvy Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, Jan Lowery-Hutchinson, RN, CLNC and Cathy Cassandra, RN, MS, CLNC have joined together to teach a seminar for personal injury attorneys on the neuromuscular system and the effects of different types of injuries on that system.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Zen and the Art of Safe Emailing

In the good old days, if a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant wanted to send a business communication to an attorney-client, they had to address an envelope, physically place their work-product into that envelope and surrender that same envelope to a delivery service such as a courier, the U.S. Postal Service or FedEx. There was plenty of time to complete the draft of that correspondence and make sure it was not only complete, but also perfectly composed before it was sent to the patiently waiting recipient.
