Sometimes, when I tell people that I'm a coach who coaches nurses, they ask me why nurses need coaching in the first place.

Nurses are key to the delivery of care, so it serves to maintain a healthy nursing workforce that can withstand the stress of nursing and the demands of the profession.

A Nurse Mensch Is Something to Be
According to the annual poll by Gallup, nurses are the most trusted professionals in the United States, and those of us who love nurses understand why.
