I really appreciated your conference and the way you taught was exceptional – the concepts of how you write and the effective tools and the outcome and the way you logically had the bullets of one through seven. You could itemize it; you could remember it. Kudos to you!

Please look at Pat Iyer’s website and buy some of her programs. They’ll be well worth your money.
THE HIGHLIGHT of the AALNC conference was meeting YOU- at last! I have so deeply admired your brillance and vast amount of knowledge that you so willingly share. You have been such an inspiration and fountain of information- I was quite awestruck- you’re like a Rock Star of the LNC world!
The Power Lunch with you left me breathless (no, I did not aspirate!!) You have this amazing ability to leave the listeners at the edges of our seats- what a terrific English and computer lesson!

I really enjoyed your talk this afternoon on the Seven Seas of Report Writing for legal nurses and felt that it was really beneficial and I have a lot to learn from you and your writing tips were very helpful to all of us and I especially liked the game at the end with the ball toss and I was happy I answered all of your questions right. Thank you.

I attended a legal documents seminar with Pat. I felt that it was very informative. I felt it covered a lot of issues we have in our local and it will help people immensely in their practice going forward.

I am a labor relations specialist at JNESO. I just want to say the documentation seminar was very successful. I think it went very well and I think it was very informative and educational and we need more of this to inform our nurses.

The CT Chapter of the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants was fortunate recently to have Pat Iyer agree to present the webinar, “From Cold Calls to Hot Prospects: How to Build Your Client Base” to our chapter membership. Pat is a strong presenter and presents in a comprehensive and clear manner. Pat included information pertinent to legal nurse consultants promoting their practices in CT, which was an unexpected surprise. Feedback for her webinar has been overwhelmingly positive. I highly suggest Pat as an instructor and presenter to both new and experienced legal nurse consultants.
