It’s hardwired into an RN’s DNA to want to make a difference in your job whether that job is legal nurse consulting or an RN job at a hospital.
If you’re like me, you came out of nursing school with your jets blazing and ready to save lives and improve the healthcare system. I decided to start my legal nurse consulting business in 1982 when I bumped up against the reality that one person changing the complex world of healthcare seemed more like a hallucination than an achievable goal. I’ve been blessed to live a path where I’ve made a difference, not just in the lives of RNs, but also in the healthcare system itself via the legal cases I’ve been involved in.
Whether you’re a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant or a nurse working an RN job at a hospital, take the moments to remember the ways you do make a difference – to patients, family members, attorneys and their clients and other healthcare providers. To the world you may be only one person, but to that one person you may be the world.
