“A dynamic mentoring relationship should intensify after you’ve completed your legal nurse consulting certification because that’s when you’ll need it the most.”

Learning how to become a legal nurse consultant takes hard work, determination and most importantly mentors who have been there and successfully done what you’re about to do.
Talk to any successful businessperson and you’ll discover somewhere along their journey they’ve had mentors who inspired them, provided guidance and were simply there for an occasional bit of advice.
Here are five 5 strategies on how to become a legal nurse consultant with the support of mentors before, during and after your legal nurse consulting training and certification.
Start Your Legal Nurse Consultant Career with Decades of Experience
Sure, you can make all of the mistakes yourself, but why would you want to? The reality of a legal nurse consultant business is that it can’t be artificially created – you’ve either worked as a legal nurse consultant or you haven’t. So how do you accelerate past the painful learning curve? By employing the power of practicing legal nurse consultants who can speak to the specific challenges of what it actually takes to succeed. Extensive legal nurse consulting and nursing experience uniquely qualifies the CLNC Mentors to advise you on your cases, business challenges and legal nurse consultant career. That’s the level of mentoring you want as you learn how to become a legal nurse consultant.
Set Impactful and Efficient Business and Career Goals
Most new legal nurse consultants are conservative in setting goals for their business. Vickie Milazzo Institute’s CLNC Mentors constantly go through the goal setting process themselves and can help you stretch as you define both short and long-term goals you might not even know are attainable. Guidance in achieving your goals is another valuable aspect of having CLNC Mentors.
Establish Accountability So Life Doesn’t Just Happen
We’ve all got busy lives and without the CLNC Mentors holding you accountable, it’s easy to look up and wonder why you haven’t accomplished your goals. Whether you’re starting your own legal nurse consulting business or working in-house at a law firm, the experienced CLNC Mentors can help provide the personal accountability you need to stay on track with your goals and help to ensure you’re accountable to yourself as you refine your skills in how to become a legal nurse consultant.
Use an Outside Perspective to Ignite Your Legal Nurse Consulting Genius
We naturally navigate toward people who agree with us. But only when you surround yourself with CLNC Mentors who challenge your presumptions, and even disagree with you, will you grow your legal nurse consultant business to the level you desire. The simple act of talking through a challenge or using a mentor as a sounding board will open you to a different way of viewing a challenge and lead you to a successful breakthrough. Mentors will provide diverse opinions which spark new thoughts, fresh directions and unique opportunities. You arrive at a more intelligent place in your business you could not have reached alone.
Intensify Your Mentoring Relationship to Accelerate Growth
Unlike a university program, Vickie Milazzo Institute’s exclusive CLNC Mentoring Program doesn’t stop being a resource once you complete the CLNC Certification Program. The CLNC Mentors are in for the long haul. They listen, contribute insight and question your assumptions long after you’ve learned how to become a legal nurse consultant. In fact, a dynamic mentoring relationship should intensify after you’ve completed your legal nurse consultant certification because that’s when you’ll need it the most.
