9 Things to Expect when Partnering with a Nurse Coach

The Nurse Coach role is a relatively new advanced certification for Registered Nurses, with the premier certification offered by the International Nurse Coach Association in 2010, since then more Nurse Coaching education programs have been created to fill the need for this up and coming Nursing specialty. 

A Nurse Coach is a Registered Nurse who has chosen to advance their Nursing degree with additional extensive education, practice and mentor-ship to learn the tools, concepts and theories to coach clients and patients towards best health, while preventing disease. Many Nurse Coaches hold a board certification through the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation

Nurse Coaches are devoted to the science of healthcare and the art of nursing and caring and are positioned to provide a unique set of skills to support the health journey.  They truly understand the healthcare space and value the uniqueness of each individual.  This innate knowledge ensures seamless and timely navigation through medical and health challenges, while being fully capable to support clients, patients and families on their path through life, and even in death.

A Nurse Coach believes that each person has their own definition of health and that even in illness, one can find their version of health if one seeks it.  They honor those they partner with by listening deeply to the story to uncover growth, healing, well-being and possibility. When you hire a Nurse Coach, you are hiring a partner invested in your journey to feeling your best.
