The term Nurse Coach is a newer Nursing role to describe a Registered Nurse who has devoted additional time, energy and investment into obtaining extra training, education, and practice in developing the skills and presence to provide holistic and scientific-based health and wellness coaching, beyond their original Nursing school training.

Nurse Coaches are a distinct breed of Nurses completely focused on enhancing the health and well-being of their clients, patients and communities.
