There are many gifted coaches working from a variety of backgrounds. However, nurse coaches are Registered Nurses, and bring a unique combination of education and experience to health and wellness coaching.
Coaching is a natural extension of nursing practice. Our clinical expertise includes an understanding of both the science of the human body – in both disease and healthy states, and of the daily health challenges that many people are living with. We are aware of the latest research regarding the stages of behavior change, the science of craving & addiction, the effect of mindfulness on the human brain, and the benefits of integrative practices. Just as importantly, we are grounded in the values of caring, healing, and compassion. The nursing profession is consistently rated #1 or #2 ‘most trusted professions’ regarding honesty and ethical practices — our professional licensing holds us to high standards of care.
