From the American Holistic Nurses Certification Corporation

Nurse Coaching was developed to meet the demands in healthcare reform and is based in the precepts of Holistic Nursing. Specifically, Nurse Coaching is a structured client-centered process with the client as director and the nurse as the facilitator of the client’s self-directed goals, implemented within a contracted period of time.”


As instruments of healing, holistic nurses believe that they must partner with their clients, honor a client’s worldview, and prepare themselves to enter into a caring-healing relationship. Fundamental to each client interaction is self-awareness, centering, and setting an intent to facilitate healing and/or growth for the client.”

Resilience Principles: the New Paradigm

As an Advancing Nurse Coaching nurse/health coaching student, you’ll learn the principles of human psychological functioning though the Resilience Paradigm. This groundbreaking advancement in health care was developed by Keith Blevens, PhD and Valda Monroe.

The Resilience Paradigm is a foundational model for: 

1 Living in the present 

2Learning through logic and insight 

3Realizing you and your patients’ inherent capacity for wellbeing

4Awareness of  the innate resilience within us all

Want to know more?

“Understanding this paradigm is the key to our resiliency, every one of us. Seeing how I experience each moment allows me to be naturally more present in my practice as well as in my work and personal relationships. I am given an opportunity over and over again to feel life in its entirety without being afraid of my experience. Knowing this for myself transfers over to the care I give my patients. I can have fun and be genuine in my practice.”
