On episode 197 of The Nurse Keith Show, we’re joined by Patricia Iyer, MSN, RN, LNCC. Pat is the former president of Med League Support Services, Inc., an independent legal nurse consulting firm she established in 1989. Pat ran this company for 28 years before selling it in January 2015. She is past president of the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants.
Pat is the editor, author, or coauthor of over 800 books, articles, online courses, case studies, or book chapters. Coaches, consultants, speakers, and others hire Pat to assist them in taking an idea for a book that lives only in their heads and bring it to fruition as a book that they can proudly hold in their hands and deliver to the world. This can include ghost-writing, editing, proofreading, and other essential services. You can contact Pat at PatIyer.com, Facebook, LinkedIn, and at firstname.lastname@example.org.
