About INCA

The Integrative Nurse Coach™ Academy | International Nurse Coach Association  (INCA) was created with the vision of promoting and supporting the unique role of Nurse Coaches who are assisting individuals, groups and communities in realizing and reaching their greatest health potentials and goals.

Our INCA philosophy encompasses an understanding that the Nurse Coach honors the whole person using principles and modalities that integrate body -mind- emotions- spirit-environment.

This model respects all beliefs and cultures as essential components of health and well-being.

INCA inspires and empowers nurses to be leaders in lifestyle health and wellbeing –
local to global.
Today, there are approximately 4 million nurses in the U.S. and over 28 million globally working in all sectors of healthcare. With years of experience, skills, and knowledge, nurses are seeking new directions and meaningful employment options. Many nurses are leaving the current medical model disenchanted with the modern technological focus, and seek to reconnect to their roots in the healing arts and carative tradition. Integrative Nurse Coaches are integrating this new role across diverse health care settings and are using a person-centered model to provide skilled preventive health strategies, healing modalities, and substantive coaching skills to enhance health outcomes.

As Integrative Nurse Coaches, we recognize the current crisis in healthcare and we view these challenges as opportunities for nurses to take action as informed, inspired, and effective leaders within an emerging healthcare model that focuses on prevention and wellness promotion.

Integrative Nurse Coaches offer new skills and expand the nurse role toward achieving these important goals for the wellbeing of individuals, families and communities.

Research shows that the therapeutic presence and interaction between a nurse and patient can be a healing moment, providing comfort, support, and lowering the stress response.

An Integrative Nurse Coach promotes wellness and resiliency by guiding clients/patients to deepen connection to their inner healing resources and their capacity to make meaningful choices and to help establish goals and strategies for healthier lifestyle behaviors.

We see Integrative Nurse Coaching as a vehicle for moving our vision of an integrative health care paradigm forward.

Our mission is to provide nurses with a global community for learning, networking, and reconnecting to the heart and art of nursing through Integrative Nurse Coaching.
