Success Strengths for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants: Renewal

Success Strengths for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants: Renewal

Nurses have the strength of renewal. You’re a healer. You renew and re-energize the patients you care for, physically and emotionally, turning them out healthier than they were before. You give and you give and you give all your energy to renew everyone else. But do you turn that strength around and apply it to you?

In 1982 I started a legal nurse consulting business and then an education company – both at a time when RNs didn’t own businesses. I had to push through other people’s perceptions of what a nurse and a woman could do. It wasn’t easy, but I did it and here I am still standing, the fact which I consider to be my true success. After all, anyone can start a business, but few succeed at it year after year and decade after decade.

Success Strengths for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants: Enterprise

Nurses have the strength of enterprise. Think about all the creative, enterprising ways you’ve worked around administration, the doctors, the insurance companies – all on behalf of your patients. To satisfy everybody you have to be enterprising. But being enterprising isn’t just about satisfying patients, doctors and administration. It’s about being enterprising in the pursuit of your career and professional advancement. You must be as enterprising as the CEO of a successful business.

I was mentoring an RN who had more than twenty years’ nursing experience. She had one of those backgrounds and skill sets that should have been the envy of the staff around her. She was considering a nursing career change and wanted to talk to me about legal nurse consulting. I asked what was holding her back from making a change and she told me flat out that it was fear. She was afraid to make a move that would affect her life, either for the positive or for the negative. I asked her how long she’d been considering a change and she told me three years – after a friend of hers had become a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.

I’ve frequently mentored a new Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who is about to go on their first attorney interview. As an example, one CLNC® consultant emailed, “I have an appointment next Tuesday with one of the most prominent medical malpractice firms in the state. It’s with their lead attorney and he wants to speak with me about a case but he hasn’t actually given it to me yet. I have a few questions regarding this interview and I have to admit I am very nervous.”
