Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Susan Schaab, RN, BSN, CLNC shares the legal nurse consulting success she achieved while exhibiting at a legal conference.

I recently exhibited with a CLNC Mentor at a legal conference in Indianapolis. What a win! The entire experience was so organized from beginning to end, including the call with Vickie Milazzo Institute providing the info I needed to exhibit effectively, to the follow-up reminders from the Institute after exhibiting. The organization and support from the institute has made the whole process of exhibiting easy and fun, which are two things that I didn’t expect on my first big public outing as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant to be.
In the past I’ve blogged about an important strategy for legal nurse consultants – networking with power players.

I regularly post new litigation trends on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ for all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants. My goal is for you to get your next legal nurse consulting job by researching and contacting the attorneys engaged in that new litigation.
When I did the book tour for my New York Times bestseller Wicked Success Is Inside Every Woman, I spoke to so many business and networking groups (large and small) that I lost count.

Networking, is all so frequently, NOT working.
