I have a friend, Rick, in Los Angeles who produces graphics and animations for attorneys. His company is one of the most popular with the L.A. trial attorneys. When Tom and I spent a weekend with him, we ran into attorneys everywhere (Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Crenshaw) and they greeted him like they were best friends. Every attorney in L.A. (plaintiff and defense) seems to know Rick by first name.

Georgette Peterson, RN, CLNC got her first legal nurse consultant jobs with a large law firm thanks to her aunt who was watching a TV news program. The aunt saw a story about an attorney who was handling three obstetrical cases and shared the attorney’s name with Georgette, who resourcefully researched and found him on LinkedIn.
Do you know an RN colleague, friend or family member who’s always busy, but never gets much of anything done? Motion directs our lives. It’s motion that leads us to where we’re going physically, mentally and spiritually.
SplashData publishes an annual list of the worst passwords of the year. Looking over the list I’m surprised (or not) that some of these passwords are actually in use. I might even be surprised (or not) to learn how many legal nurse consultants utilize these passwords on the computers, smart phones or email accounts used in their legal nursing businesses (or personal life).
Email can inspire Certified Legal Nurse Consultants to greatness, or it can ruin your day by overwhelming you and dragging you into territory best left for after you’ve had a strong cup of coffee.
Perfectionism is not only rewarded in your RN job, it’s expected. For healthcare administrators “good enough” isn’t good enough. Mistakes can be the difference between life and death. I’m sure even small mistakes don’t win any points with your nursing supervisor either. But do our toilets have to be so immaculate and the conversation with the attorney so manicured?
Presenting your legal nurse reports and marketing brochures in style is a must to get the attorney’s attention. I’m happy to announce that Vickie Milazzo Institute just added personalized, CLNC-themed presentation folders to the CLNC Marketing Center. All you have to do is add your business name and contact information.
Nursing was everything I wanted – and more. And more. And still more. Last year, I assumed a full management role in my hospital job. What eventually pushed me over the edge, the push I needed to launch my legal nurse consulting business, was being assigned five nursing units. I had to manage mother-baby, neonatal intensive care, medical-surgical and the pediatric center by myself. On top of all that, I had to work staff in labor and delivery. I’m a board certified ED nurse and have never in my life worked labor and delivery. The situation was a risk nightmare.
Sunday’s Academy Awards presented many concrete examples of what it means to be awesome. If you saw the movie Steve Jobs starring the awesome Oscar-nominated actors Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet you have an insightful view of the man who changed our world through awesome vision and constant, superlative execution.
The other evening the printer in our home office started throwing error messages – specifically the dreaded 0x97 error. This happened just before 7:00pm on a Wednesday night and with an entire unencumbered evening ahead of me, I immediately launched into trying to investigate and remediate the issue.
