Here we are in the heat of July. While I wait for the Texas summer to pass I thought I’d tell you a quick winter tale to cool you down. We don’t get many hard freezes here in Houston and when the weather does turn cold, the outdoor parts of the city quickly turn into a ghost town.
More and more I’ve been abandoning my car’s GPS-based navigation system and using my iPhone and Google Maps. I love Google Maps because it checks your route against traffic and usually (but not always) takes me the fastest way to where I’m going.

Vickie and I are lucky. At the office we have Internet connection speeds that would make the Pentagon jealous.

I recently mentored a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant who is subcontracting with one of the most successful CLNC® consultants in the industry. She shared that she is frustrated because she wants to grow her own business, not someone else’s.
Most RNs think they have no choice in whether they get a pay raise or not. That’s simply not true. You have more control over a pay raise than you think. Just don’t expect it to come from the hospital where you work.
Attorneys who litigate medical-related cases are intelligent. They are also enterprising which is exactly why they use Certified Legal Nurse Consultants. The smartest attorneys know they need RNs for their legal nurse consultant jobs.
