Transform your Nursing Career


"The INCCP has given me the opportunity to bring 2 of my nursing passions together: end of-life care advocacy & health promotion. I clearly see the impact nurses have when we engage people living with chronic illness in coaching conversations. We are better able to support them to focus on their wellbeing & quality of living as a priority.”
