My most Memorable CLNC® Case involved a patient who committed suicide. The case was one of my first larger cases, and I was retained by the plaintiff attorney following a phone interview by several of the attorneys at the law firm.
When I first started my legal nurse consulting business in 1982, I was nervous about contacting attorneys and marketing to them. The single most important thing that helped me overcome my fear, was remembering who I was – an RN. You know my mantra, “We Are Nurses and We Can Do Anything!®”

In 1982 I started a legal nurse consulting business and then an education company – both at a time when RNs didn’t own businesses.

After all, anyone can start a business, but few succeed at it year after year and decade after decade.
