How do I get started?

  1. Hey, y'all, I am 34 1/2 weeks pregnant and another ER nurse recently mentioned to me the field of consulting. My knowledge of it is scant, but I know I am not looking to get rich off it; I'd also like to keep my foot in the door of the ER.
    This pregnancy is becoming more difficult and I wonder if any of you out there have any advice for getting started. I've looked at all the Vicki Mizzano (sp?) stuff and I think I am not interested in going quite that whole hog. Just a decent supplement of my regular (PRN) ER income so I don't have to spend all my time away from my new baby.
    Any helpful hints or points in the right direction would be so appreciated. I am in Memphis, Tennessee, BTW.

    Hello, TennNurse,

    Have you checked out the threads in this forum especially Legal Nurse Consulting and Marketing Ideas ?

    What else motivates you to become an LNC besides supplementing your income?

    I do not want to discourage you at all, but this career is quite possibly the most difficult one to break into. You have to really be keen on marketing yourself and with the proper professional business tools.

    Just read through some threads, do a little more research and see what you think once the baby is born. If you have other questions/concerns, please post here.

    Good luck on your up-and-coming delivery and I wish for you a safe delivery and healthy baby.
