Just Because You Insert the Needle Doesn’t Mean You Have to Inject the Heroin

Just Because You Insert the Needle Doesn’t Mean You Have to Inject the Heroin

In nursing school I worked with heroin addicts – not exactly the most fun or inspiring bunch of people to be around. Not having an addictive personality myself, I couldn’t understand the forces that drove them. I wanted to tell them just because you’ve inserted the needle doesn’t mean you have to inject the heroin, but I knew it wouldn’t mean anything to them.

The Most Common Mistake Legal Nurse Consultants Make with Attorneys

I love technology and all that technology offers us in our legal nurse consulting businesses. I definitely don’t miss sitting in the medical library for hours, manually Bates stamping medical records or having to Xerox a hard copy of the medical record for a CLNC subcontractor. No, none of us want those days back. Nor do I need to mention typewriters, bound journal indexes, liquid White-Out and modems.

CLNC Success Story: One P.S. in an Email Is the Ticket to New Attorney-Clients

CLNC® Success Story: One P.S. in an Email Is the Ticket to New Attorney-Clients

Melissa Boyd, RN, CLNC was attending the CLNC 6-Day Certification Seminar when just one P.S. in an email to a friend connected her directly with an attorney-prospect. She struck while the opportunity was hot and in less than 24 hours set up an appointment with the attorney. P.S.’s were more common before the digital age, but Melissa proves they work in email as well as in letters.

Cirque du Soleil’s Art of Misdirection Works with Attorneys Too!

I love Cirque du Soleil and see every new show that I can, sometimes even more than once. They combine dance, acrobatics, visuals and just good old-fashioned daring into an immersive experience (and they’ve got funny clowns). If you’re attending one of my CLNC® 6-Day Certification Seminars in Orlando or Las Vegas, treat yourself to a show after the CLNC Certification Exam on Saturday – you deserve it and you’ll love it.

Certified Legal Nurse Consultants – Are Smartphones Out-Smarting Us?

Any CLNC consultant you ask will tell you that their smartphone is the best thing that’s ever happened to them and their legal nurse consulting business. But, have our smartphones out-smarted us and made us less – instead of more – smart and productive? It’s time to take back your life from your smartphone, recover your common sense and rediscover what it means to be productive.

Deadlines Can Be Deadly for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

Deadlines can become a double-edged sword for CLNC consultants. On one hand, a generous deadline creates the space for you to produce your highest quality work product. Likewise, a short deadline trains you to be efficient and helps you learn how to create work product that is cost-effective and “good enough.”
