Your Life – Your Choice

Your Life – Your Choice

When you decide to become a legal nurse consultant, I respect that you have choices. After all it’s your life – your choice. When you choose’s CLNC® Certification Program, everyone at the Institute makes it their goal to nurture you and the choice you’ve made. RNs were recognized as true heroes of healthcare by the Institute long before the COVID-19 pandemic, and that’s why we respect and care how you feel about the CLNC Certification Program and your relationship with the Institute long after you’re certified.

I asked 6 Certified Legal Nurse Consultants why they chose the Institute’s CLNC Certification Program. Here’s what they have to say.

“When I was looking into’s CLNC Certification Program in order to plan my nursing future, it appeared to me Vickie had thought of absolutely every aspect of the legal nurse consulting business down to the finest detail and then sat down and wrote out step by step instructions, AND even then drew a map! She made it seem possible by providing such a thorough and detailed plan. I felt if she was 100% committed to helping me succeed in every way she could, I was 100% committed to trying to succeed in every way that I could. I am forever grateful that I found the Institute’s CLNC Certification Program and I am forever grateful that Vickie created this path for RNs to follow.”

– Jorie Akins, RN, BSN, TNCC, ECRN, CLNC

“I have had the opportunity to talk with hundreds, if not thousands of nurses over the course of my 20-plus year career as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant. Some RNs have shared their personal journeys and explorations of other legal nurse consulting programs they enrolled in. Because they struggled, they subsequently enrolled in’s CLNC Certification Program and found it to be more comprehensive, focusing upon the skills necessary to be successful. They’ve remarked, ‘Why didn’t I start with the’ To which I’ve responded, ‘Well, now you’ve learned from the pioneer of legal nurse consulting herself!’”

– Suzanne Arragg, RN, BSN, CDONA/LTC, CLNC

“I wanted to learn how to be a CLNC consultant from the pioneer of legal nurse consulting and not a copycat. I love what I do and have never looked back.”

– Dorene Goldstein, RNC, BSN, CLNC

“Before I chose’s CLNC Certification Program, I asked an RN friend who worked as a risk manager about it. Kim had completed the Program herself, and highly recommended it. She has built a big business by contracting with medical facilities for their out-sourced risk management needs.”

– Camille Joyner, RN, BSN, CCM, CLNC

“I chose’s CLNC Certification Program for one reason and one reason alone. I wasn’t going to settle for less than the best when it came to my future. When I decided to become a legal nurse consultant, I had never heard of or a CLNC Certification. After many hours of research and personal interviews, I chose the Institute because they are the litmus that all other programs are compared to and measured by. I was extremely satisfied with the content of the program and all of the tools and mentoring options prevented me from having to recreate the wheel in so many ways. But I knew I had chosen the right program when I actually met Vickie Milazzo at a legal conference in 2016. There is no greater advertisement or sales ad than meeting the founder of and immediately feeling her love and compassion, not only for the CLNC Certification Program, but for every RN that has ever been through the Program. The Institute’s CLNC Certification Program is not only accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), but more importantly, it is validated by the love, admiration and respect for the person behind the creator, Vickie Milazzo, and there is no other certification program I know that can make that claim. In the words of my father, ‘Why settle for hamburger when you can get filet mignon?’”


“I chose the because she is the pioneer of legal nurse consulting. Who better to learn from than the person who started it all? The Institute goes above and beyond all other programs. I was really drawn to the Institute because the opportunity to learn doesn’t end after you become certified. The mentoring and networking opportunities available with are invaluable.”
