The latest book focused on nurse coaching, "Nurse Coaching: Integrative Approaches for Health and Wellbeing", was released in late October, and many of us are excited to have yet another text from which to draw inspiration and informative guidance for the practice of nurse coaching.
"Nurse Coaching: Integrative Approaches for Health and Wellbeing" was authored by
my friend, colleague, and fellow Santa Fean, Barbara Montgomery Dossey, as well as by Susan Luck and Bonney Gulino Schaub. This book is "the first comprehensive Nurse Coach
textbook that describes the theoretical and clinical relevance and
practical application of an innovative, integrative, holistic, and
integral nurse coaching model."
According to the description on Amazon, "this user-friendly book will guide your
Nurse Coach practice to promote lifestyle behavioral change for health
and wellbeing for both the nurse and the client/patient. It can be used
in all healthcare environments and implemented in diverse settings
including hospitals, communities, and private practice."
In addition to practical applications for nurse coaching, theories and strategies of integrative coaching are part and parcel of this valuable new text, as well as evidenced-based coaching methodologies and practices.
This book is for all nurses and other health care
providers seeking coaching knowledge and skills, and you can find more information on the
Integrative Nurse Coach Certificate Program by visiting www.inursecoach.com/programs.

For nurses interested in this area of nursing career growth, this is a time of exponential expansion.
