CLNC® Consultants: It’s Time to Enjoy Some Hammock Time

The morning of my birthday I woke up in a villa on stilts over the water in the Maldives. The portion of the Indian Ocean that extended into the safe harbor of our atoll was a brilliant azure blue. It was a storybook location. I sipped my two cups of healthy green tea, simply sitting and listening to the whisper of the waves beneath me, then climbed down into the hammock that had been beckoning.

Legal Nurse Consultant Success Story

CLNC® Success Story: A Day in the Life of CLNC Consultant Suzanne Arragg

The BEST part of being a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is the ability to choose how I want to spend my day. Barring the fact that there are times when I do not have the liberty to control my schedule because of an arbitration, mediation or trial, my typical day always begins with two cups of Java while looking out onto my garden. Enjoying the quiet and tranquility of the morning keeps me centered and calm.

Tom’s Tech Tips

Tom’s Tech Tip: Update Your Browsers – NOW

I know many Certified Legal Nurse Consultants with old computers, maybe not with monochrome screens but close. I also know many CLNC® consultants with brand spanking new, or nearly new, Macs, Windows 8 and Windows 7 machines. If you’re still running Windows XP, it’s really time to move. If you’re running Internet Explorer on a Windows XP machine take heed of this notice from CERT, a division of the Department of Homeland Security.

Genocide Survivor Reminds CLNC® Consultants How Bright the Future Can Be

I was in Kigali, Rwanda talking to a young woman, Darlene, who’d lost her aunts and uncles to the 1994 genocide. As you probably recall, in 100 days more than 1,000,000 Rwandans classified as Tutsi were machine-gunned, hacked and clubbed to death by Rwandan Hutus. Neighbors murdered neighbors. Coworkers killed coworkers. Anyone labeled Tutsi by their identity card was marked for death and many were killed. Visiting the Genocide Memorial is a sobering experience.

Vickie Milazzo’s Favorite Quotes

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Bill Bryson

I just got back from tracking gorillas in Rwanda – a country I never thought I’d visit and an experience I never thought I’d have. My twin brother, Vince jokes that he loves animals more than he loves people. After experiencing gorillas in the wild, I know why. LOL! When a gorilla looks at you the experience is spiritual. It’s like they are looking into your soul and affirming all the mysteries of life.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Web-Surfing Tips for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

Reading and researching for your legal nurse consulting work product on the web is absolutely necessary as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. But sometimes reading that important scholarly article on a website can be an annoyingly slow process because the site owner/publisher has broken a simple article into 5 or 6 page views.


If you’re like me and prefer to read without clicking, simply look for a “print” icon on the top or bottom of a page.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff – Love It!

At 5:50am this morning, I was waiting for Starbucks® to open before we started the Las Vegas CLNC® Certification Seminar. It’s hard to believe that in Vegas a Starbucks doesn’t open until 6:00am, but that’s why I was in line. Waiting. Patiently. For. My. Caffeine. Fix.
