I just read AHNA’s Beginnings on Nurse Coaching. Your article stood out like a brilliant light. Why? As you of course know, your emphasis on theory separated your article from the others. The Theory of Integrative Nurse Coaching™ briefly illustrates what your version of nurse coaching is—nurse coaching through a theoretical nursing lens. It points readers to the ANA published The Art and Science of Nurse Coaching: The Provider’s Guide to Coaching Scope and Competencies (2013). Your Nurse Coaching: Integrative Approaches for Health and Wellbeing (2015) will certainly win a Book of the Year Award. It is especially interesting to me how definitions are spelled out in the beginning of the chapters. Also, the neologism “collaboratory” is fascinating. I am fearful that we will not reach a healthy world by 2020 as proposed in the Nightingale Declaration, but if your book is translated into all the major languages of the world, it will make a huge impact toward actualizing that intention. I am sincere when I am praising your book. It is comprehensive and practical as it seems to cover the most important aspects of nursing and of life. Keep up your great work—nursing needs it! .
