Sunday was the Houston Marathon. I always joke that, “you couldn’t pay me to run a marathon.” But, there are people who get paid to do just that. Marathon running can seem like a lonely sport, but not all marathon runners run alone. They hire subcontractors (at least the ones who win enough races to be able to afford them)!
Working as a CLNC® subcontractor is a great way to consult on medical-related cases without having to market to attorney-clients. You get to focus more on case analysis and less on managing a business. It’s also an opportunity to gain experience and to expand your confidence as a new Certified Legal Nurse Consultant.

I figure I’ll get my CLNC business off the ground while I’m on leave from the emergency department. After all, I’m going to work from home while I raise my daughters, 22-months-old, and almost born. “I’ll read medical records while I nurse in the middle of the night,” I tell myself and even mean it. Jump ahead to August 2008 – I’m still on leave. Turns out, it’s tough to make calls with a colicky infant screaming in the background (or worse, the foreground) and even more difficult to leave the house to meet an attorney.

Vickie, I just have to tell you about my recent exhibiting success. I started my Certified Legal Nurse Consultant business 5½ months ago after a long hiatus from nursing.

I got my first two cases on the same day within a week of my launch date just networking with friends. This networking brought me two attorneys and seven cases in the first three months.
