In the CLNC® Certification Program we teach RNs how to value themselves, so they don’t underprice their expertise with attorneys. But even before you choose to become a legal nurse consultant you will want to put a high value on you and your nursing expertise, or you might find yourself putting off a well-earned investment in yourself. Putting a high value on yourself starts with investing in a legal nurse consulting program that respects your value as a registered nurse.

Owning and operating a legal nurse consulting business has presented me with unique challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, but not in the way many may think. I’ve been fortunate to continue with my typical flow of medical-related cases and the same attorney-clients. I’ve even gained two new attorney-clients through a referral during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though the courts are closed and attorneys are working remotely from home, cases still need to be reviewed and worked up as usual.
Nothing reduces stress more than a great vacation – at least once you get over the stress of traveling. Getting off the grid is never easy. Traditionally, no matter how busy I am, I make it my goal at least once a year to get far away, into something so different that it forces me out of my regular stress-relief routine into one that entirely disconnects me from my legal nurse consulting business and life’s routine challenges.
During the COVID-19 pandemic I’m traveling mentally more than physically. Today I’m sitting in Paris in one of my favorite bistros. I’ve just finished a lunch of healthy red wine, a hot baguette, pomme frites and some luscious stinky cheese such as you can only find in France.
