Owning and operating a legal nurse consulting business has presented me with unique challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, but not in the way many may think. I’ve been fortunate to continue with my typical flow of medical-related cases and the same attorney-clients. I’ve even gained two new attorney-clients through a referral during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though the courts are closed and attorneys are working remotely from home, cases still need to be reviewed and worked up as usual.
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.
When the nasty divorce was finalized, my nursing career was already 15 years behind me. My husband and I owned a horse-training stable during that time, and he was the love of my life, until he wasn’t.
My experience as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant is probably not typical as I’m still working three 12-hour shifts a week as a clinical nurse in the emergency department. On my days off I focus on growing my CLNC business.
To be your most successful, all aspects of your life have to be congruent with your values and goals. I get to meet and talk with RNs from all over the US. One common complaint they share is exhaustion from 12-hour shifts. Long shifts combined with few to no breaks create a poor environment for planning healthy meals and exercise.
I suppose I’m not your typical Certified Legal Nurse Consultant as I waited seven years after completing the CLNC® Certification Program before finally jumping in. I received my CLNC Certification in 2011, and I even dabbled my toe in the CLNC waters, including a six-month relationship with a disability attorney before he retired. But my 20-plus years as an obstetrical and neonatal nurse was like an enormous anchor holding me back.
When I talk to Certified Legal Nurse Consultants I’m often surprised at how few of them use social media to promote their legal nurse consulting businesses. Social media is powerful and it’s free. If you have 200 friends, each of those friends will have 200 friends and each of those friends will have more friends.
Too many attorney-clients, too many cases? A nice problem to have, but you might be asking “Where does the time go?” In this blog five Certified Legal Nurse Consultants will inspire you to ask two even more important questions.
Success means different things to different Certified Legal Nurse Consultants and each consultant aspires to different levels of success. Whatever the meaning or aspiration for you personally, the CLNC® Pros can help you get on the fast track to legal nurse consulting success with these 8 secrets.
