We all know that one person who stresses over every little thing – like getting groped by TSA at the airport, the waitress taking too long to bring the check or the pizza’s not crispy enough. I believe there’s a direct correlation between not having enough “big stuff” to do and stressing over the little things.
I was mentoring a very successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who was upset because of an issue with a subcontractor. The problem was legitimate, but this CLNC consultant was more focused on harping about the problem than she was on working out the solution.
I recently mentored a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who has no problem getting attorney-clients. Her problem is keeping up with her successful marketing and the loads of cases that go with it. Failure to provide consistently excellent work product has caused one of her attorney-clients to go elsewhere.
Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant started the way that you are going to have to start. They balanced a full-time RN job while building their legal nurse consulting business. Here, three CLNC consultants share exactly how they did just that.

At the Philadelphia CLNC Certification Seminar this week I counseled a CLNC student who had been unjustly terminated from her RN job at the hospital. She had a 25-year record that was flawless. Without getting into the details, I’ve heard similar stories over the years from other RNs who have been unjustly terminated for being whistleblowers (e.g., reporting an impaired or incompetent MD to administration).
