Pat Iyer’s first book, The Nursing Process and Nursing Diagnosis, was published in 1986. It changed her life because it established her credibility as an expert witness, which led to starting an independent legal nurse consulting business. She ran this company for 28 years before selling it in 2015. Med League had sales of over a million dollars a year the last 5 years Pat owned the company.
Pat’s publications led to opportunities to consult with healthcare facilities, speak on stages to attorneys, paralegals, nurses, and other healthcare providers, teach online and build Med League and other successful businesses.
Everything about the course was helpful because there are so many steps that I didn't know, like the foreword and an introduction. Pat helped me focus on all these little things that make a difference because you don't think of it when you pick up a book.
I think it was incredibly helpful, very well organized. I liked how it started from the basics, but instead of just jumping right in. It just made really good sense. It flowed very well, and I think the time between sessions was great.
The sessions start November 7, 2019 and are held online via Zoom once a month every month on Thursday night at 7 PM Eastern for 6 sessions ending April 9, 2020. Each session will last 60-90 minutes and will be recorded.
In between sessions you will be able to ask questions and get feedback during the group Check In calls.
