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?
I hope all is good and that you and your loved ones are healthy. Like you, Vickie Milazzo Institute wants all Americans to understand the risk of COVID-19 to the frontline providers and the healthcare system at large.

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.

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.
