Karen Taylor, an ICU veteran, decided to open a full-time LNC practice right before the pandemic. She quickly recalibrated, shifting her marketing efforts to online platforms, and she learned to fully utilize LinkedIn’s networking features.
She landed some clients directly but found that she was receiving many more invitations to do subcontracting work. At that point, she realized that marketing wasn’t her niche, and she achieved a mindset that allowed her to shift from marketing directly to attorneys to focusing on subcontracting.
If one word would describe what this mindset is, it would be “receptivity.” Subcontracting has advantages and disadvantages, and someone considering this form of work needs to weigh both aspects. Once having chosen this career, she or he needs to make the most of the opportunities to have a valuable form of supervision and to learn from a more experienced practitioner.
It also means—and this applies to anyone—to saying “yes” to opportunities. Karen says that she may say “yes” to something she doesn’t know how to do. Though she advises caution about straying too far beyond your skillset, if the opportunity seems possible to realize, you can always ask others for advice.
Whether you’re considering becoming a subcontractor or have a busy practice and need to subcontract some of your work, you’ll benefit from learning how a thoroughly professional subcontractor looks at her work.

I currently live in North Carolina with my husband and have the privilege of working from my home office. I have 27 years in healthcare. First as a Respiratory Therapist and then 13 years as an ICU nurse. I found the field of Legal Nurse Consulting by accident after I was asked to assist the hospital attorney review a few medical records. I was attracted by the forensic nature of LNC work. I get to share my insight and experience with attorneys and do a lot of teaching, which I enjoy. I’ve learned quickly that there are many different avenues and tracts you can take as a Legal Nurse Consultant. I’m eager to continuing learning.
