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.

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.

Do You Need to Be Less of Yourself as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?

I’m all for authenticity and I love that the 4,000 plus Certified Legal Nurse Consultants feel like they know me. I’m not one to be a fake nor do I trust people who are remote and untouchable. I also like being accessible to the CLNC® consultants I service. At the same time, I don’t believe in letting it all hang out either.
