One of the most famous paintings in history, DaVinci’s Last Supper, is about 13 well-known people sitting around a table sharing bread and wine. From the beginning of mankind people have used food as a way of bonding. The tradition of “breaking bread” goes back to before knives were present at the table.

CLNC® Success Story: How I’ve Built My Legal Nurse Business with This One Unique Service to Attorneys

On January 14, 2020 mainstream support for Windows® 7 will end. This means that Microsoft® will consider Win 7 as End of Life (EOL) and discontinue all paid support, security updates, patches and other fixes. In other words any new vulnerabilities discovered after January 14, 2020 will not be fixed. If you’re lucky enough to be running Win 7 Professional (or an Enterprise edition) you will be able to purchase extended support – but everyone else will be out of luck.
This is the time of year to make a change in your nursing career or grow your legal nurse consulting business to more success.
