Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Needs Deadlines – Just Ask Walt Disney

Successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultants know it’s as much, if not more, their responsibility to set deadlines with attorney-clients as it is the attorney’s. They also know never to agree to a deadline they can’t meet. But what about the deadlines you set for yourself to ensure you never drop the ball on a medical-related case? As Walt Disney said, “Everyone needs deadlines.” And not one of us is an exception.


Deadlines allow you to seize spontaneous opportunities that you would otherwise have to decline. Or if you accept the opportunity you are so stressed out you’re thinking about checking yourself into the hospital psych ward. Successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultants are in charge of their own deadlines. They know the deadlines they set for their cases and their CLNC® business are much more important than any deadline their attorney-clients expects of them.

I’m Just Sayin’

P.S. Comment and share how you set deadlines for your attorney-clients and for your CLNC business.

One thought on “Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Needs Deadlines – Just Ask Walt Disney

  1. I have learned a few things about deadlines: I got the agreement at the first meeting over a case for a reasonable deadline, I would get the screening as soon as possible while the case theme was clear on my mind, then pace my work time to get the job done. I have also learned that any time left over gives me plenty of time to edit over and over to perfect the attorney work product.
    One more thing I learned is to ask the amount of medical records. My first case I received three 3″ binders- separate sets, the second case was a three foot stack, my third case- a 2″ binder and more to come.
    Another thing is truly a life long learning with each new case.
