What Makes Advancing Nurse Coaching Different 

1. Experience.

Open since 2016, Advancing Nurse Coaching is the premiere nurse coaching program available. Our faculty has over 60 years of combined experience in peer and nurse coaching, and with deep roots in academic and clinical settings, our curriculum has been clinically validated.

2. Experiential-learning curriculum.

This means no homework for students, because our coursework is based entirely on insight-based learning. No busywork or research assignments …just material directly relevant and immediately applicable to your work and your life. 

3. Life-changing ideas.

The ANC course series prepares you to become an excellent Nurse Coach or Holistic Nurse—and it’s so much more than that. The Resilience Principles as the new paradigm are a mental framework for life well beyond clinical settings, and our past students regularly share how the course changed their personal lives and relationships in positive ways.
