We are excited to launch our new INCA website and our first blog to share our vision for Integrative Nurse Coaches to be leaders in creating a healthy nation and a healthy world!
We are over 3 million nurses in the United States and over 15 million globally, Nurses are the most trusted professionals, the key component for a successful health coaching partnership. Therefore, as health and wellness coaches emerge as a growing new role in health care, we believe that nurses are strategic, working in all health care settings and that as a profession we embrace our nation’s renewed focus on wellness, prevention, and patient centered care.
Health and wellness coaching has historically been an integral element of nursing care. Nurses are the crucial interface between health care services and the lives and health of the people who are served by them. It is time to build upon nursing’s skills and knowledge, and utilize these skills within health promotion strategies in a new health coach model.
The Integrative Nurse Coach Certificate Program has been created to bring integrative and holistic philosophies and practices into a professional Nurse Coach model and offering a new opportunity and a new paradigm for Nurse Coaches to step into this expanded role within our nursing profession.
You will be hearing from the voices of Integrative Nurse Coaches who will share their vision, stories, and practices and we invite you to share yours with our community.
