Here’s my second favorite part of the 2013 NACLNC Conference Cruise: the videos of the CLNC Cheerleading Contest! Comment to vote on your favorite cheer of the four. Please note; All performances were BEFORE drinks (that we know of) and no CLNC consultants were harmed during any of the performances (that we know of). Enjoy and vote early and often!
It’s hard to believe that the 2013 NACLNC Conference will be here before we know it! This is going to be a special cruise on the Oasis of the Seas, one of the largest ships afloat, and with so many activities you’ll never be able to do them all. We only have one 7-Day Weekend together, so here’s my not-so-short list of things every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant should try to fit in before the weekend is over.
Today’s the Summer Solstice – the longest period of daylight of the year – a day blessed with the precious gift of extra sunlight.
We all have a story. Sometimes our story is about the family we’ve raised, our CLNC® business or the problems we’re struggling with. For most of us, our stories define who we are. How and what we think of ourselves is only in the context of our story.
This morning I looked into my closet and couldn’t figure out what to wear to work. (We have a pretty casual dress code in my office so I could have tossed on my flip-flops and a track suit but I’d worn that yesterday.) I confess, I like to have nice clothes and a decent closet.
The original Impressionists were considered radicals in their day as they departed from what was considered the “old-school” of artists. Time after time, impressionist painters would submit their work to juried art shows but their paintings would be rejected in favor of lesser artists who painted in the “approved” style of the times.
Sometimes silence really is golden. Any negotiating coach will tell you that in a situation where one party to a negotiation makes an offer or statement and a period of silence sets in, the first party to talk or break that silence loses the point. Silence can be uncomfortable when you are talking to attorneys about your legal nurse consulting services, so how do you pull that off?
I am reviewing records on a case and I am summarizing them into a written chronological report for my attorney-client. I have received multiple records from different facilities and I noticed that some of the facilities’ records are duplicates of records I received from other facilities. Do I still include them in my report even though they are repeats?

My heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all the Certified Legal Nurse Consultants who attended our successful 2009 NACLNC Conference in San Antonio. Our sell-out gathering was a spectacular event, and I hope you had as much fun as I did. It was great to see and talk with all of you again.
