Description: Integrative Nurse Coaching is a natural extension of nursing practice to address the healthcare needs of our nation and world. To model health and wellness, the Nurse Coach engages in four areas of self-development (self-reflection, self-assessments, self-evaluation, self-care) to enhance growth, overall health and wellbeing.

As health care shifts from a disease‐oriented system to one proactively focused on wellness, health promotion, and disease prevention, the Integrative Nurse Coach role is an essential ingredient for successfully assisting people toward sustained health. Chronic disease, stress-related illnesses and unhealthy lifestyles make health, healing, and well-being challenging to attain and maintain.

Nurse Coaches are strategically positioned to skillfully partner with individuals, families and communities to assess, strategize, plan, and evaluate progress towards negotiated goals for behavioral change. New research on improved health outcomes and cost savings offer opportunities for nurses who incorporate the emerging Nurse Coaching role across the spectrum of healthcare includes hospitals, community health, home care, and private practice.
