If you’re interested in becoming a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, you might be wondering if it’s a good idea to contact attorneys before you become certified. Six CLNC® consultants explain why the answer is a unanimous No.
Becoming a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is an exciting process, but it can also be daunting, so I’ve asked the CLNC® Pros to share the first steps you should take when starting your CLNC business.
Some legal nurse consultants think they’re in the legal nurse consulting business, but successful CLNC® consultants know they’re really in the marketing business. Everything is marketing. Whether you’re interviewing with a prospect, conferring with an attorney-client on a case, answering the phone or writing a report, you’re marketing.
We’ve all been there – walked out of an attorney-prospect interview that we screwed up. Sometimes the mistakes are subtle; sometimes they’re obvious to all around. What do you do when that happens?
A common question I receive from RNs interested in becoming Certified Legal Nurse Consultants is “Vickie, how do I find attorneys?”
Certified Legal Nurse Consultants just starting out often go straight for the legal nurse consultant jobs and attorneys they’re most interested in, such as the top medical malpractice attorneys in their areas.
