Give Your RN Successes an Encore to Launch Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business

Give Your RN Successes an Encore to Launch Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business

Mistakes and failures are great for teaching Certified Legal Nurse Consultants what not to do – they help us to grow and learn. However, mistakes don’t always help us discover what works. You could move from one mistake to the next and never identify the success formula to make your business prosper or overcome a specific issue or challenge. After 39 years in business, I’ve learned to study my successes at least as closely as I study my failures. Success promotes success. The more you succeed, the more you will succeed.

Certified Legal Nurse Consultants – Are You Ready for Camp? Camp Buck-Up That Is!

Certified Legal Nurse Consultants – Are You Ready for Camp? Camp Buck-Up That Is!

With the COVID-19 pandemic many parents are fantasizing about sending their children and spouses off to camp for the duration of the pandemic. I myself am thinking about starting a new camp and I’m calling it Camp Buck-Up! This camp will be for all the people out there who have to be told to “buck-up” on a regular basis. This includes more than just the people who continually forget their responsibilities (I forgot the attorney needed the report yesterday), the whiners (You really need that report Monday?) and the complainers (Writing this report was a pain).

Happy Nurses Week Takes on New Meaning During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Happy Nurses Week Takes on New Meaning During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Today marks the beginning of Nurses Week which always holds a special place in my heart. I love nurses and I love that for a whole week (not just a day) we all get to express our gratitude for and awe of nurses. After all, nurses give so much of themselves. What other profession, in the normal course of performing its job, doesn’t get to eat, use the bathroom or take a break and sometimes even gives its lives for the very people it’s serving?

Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Go Where the Attorneys Go

If you want to introduce yourself as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant to a lot of attorneys in a short period of time, consider going where they go. You might not get invited to their parties, but you can attend the conferences they attend. Check the legal conferences in your area that relate to your CLNC® business: medical malpractice, personal injury, products liability, toxic tort, workers’ compensation or criminal cases and sign up to exhibit.

Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Susan Schaab, RN, BSN, CLNC shares: “I attend the trial lawyers’ association seminars related to medical malpractice and personal injury cases. I have come home with a new attorney-client or case every time. Even better is the thrill I experience when one of my attorney-clients, who is a highly respected plaintiff-attorney, introduces me as his CLNC consultant!”

At the legal conference, make it your goal to network professionally and to talk to as many attorneys as possible. Soon the attorneys will be introducing you as their Certified Legal Nurse Consultant to all of their attorney peers.

A Not So Surprising Reason MDs Spend Less Time with Patients

A study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine determined that interns at two large academic medical facilities spent just 12% of their time in direct patient care – that is examining and interacting with patients. This is an average of just 8 minutes a day spent with each patient each day. Where do they spend the majority of their time? Mostly on indirect patient care:
