Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Karen Blixen

RNs get into nursing to make a difference. It’s in our DNA. I always tell the Certified Legal Nurse Consultant students that while they’ll enjoy the perks of weekends and holidays off and getting to go to the bathroom during work hours, those perks are not the drivers that will get them out of bed every morning.

As an RN, you have to know you’ll make a difference as a CLNC® consultant – whether it’s helping to defend a nurse in a non-meritorious case or helping to improve the healthcare system through litigation of meritorious cases.

Vickie Milazzo’s Favorite Karen Blixen Quote About Leaving Your Mark

Karen Blixen said, “We must leave our mark on life while we have it in our power.” If you’ve read or seen Out of Africa you know she certainly left her mark on Africa. When you stand in her farmhouse at the foot of the Ngong Hills (which is now the Karen Blixen Museum) and travel throughout Kenya in her footsteps you palpably feel her mark.

Leaving your mark is a virtue RNs and CLNC consultants share. I’m in gratitude for the mark you’re each leaving on life and in the lives of others.

Success Is Yours!

  1. I served as an expert witness in a med-mal case involving robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy in which the patient bled to death due to surgeon error and nursing staff failing to speak up for patient safety. The case settled, and I was glad for the patient’s widow to at least have negligence acknowledged.

  2. “We must continue to elevate our abilities to be efficient and successful Certified Legal Nurse Consultants.”

  3. I love this post, and I am so honored to have met Vickie today in person at the Live NACLNC® Apprenticeship in Washington D.C. I’m a hugger and that’s exactly what I wanted to do and was able to do today. I absolutely love her. It was also my pleasure to meet Tom in person.

    I work with moms, babies and dads and it is so rewarding to be allowed the opportunity to share in this most special time in their lives and to be able to offer assurance when they are freaking out and thinking, “We’ve got to take this child home and keep it alive?” Simple words like “you’ll be just fine and we’ve all been there” coupled with hugs and lots of encouragement go a long, long way. I love what I do, but I am looking forward to having just as great or even greater impact on the healthcare system and by extension the lives of others as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.

    I am so proud to have joined this elite group of exceptional legal nurse consultants.

  4. Hi, I am interested in becoming a legal nurse. Can you become certified with an associate’s degree? I have been a nurse for 20 years.
