Do You Want More Out of Nursing?

Whether you’re saving lives, welcoming a child into the world, or sitting with someone as they take their final breath.

Your work as a nurse is invaluable.

Yet why are so many nurses unfulfilled by their work and desperate for more?

Well, we spend all day charting or passing meds, stuck in a reactive, disease-focused model.

But becoming a Transformative Nurse Coach changes all of that.

No more quick fixes.

Instead, learn to help your patients heal in a lasting, holistic, sustainable way.

You’re In the Right Place.

Graduate Testimonials

For The Transformative Nurse Coach Program

Four Pillars of Transformative Nurse Coaching:


Service means that you offer your curiosity, intuition, and relentless belief in order to support your clients fully. It also means prioritizing your own wellbeing, so that you can do your best work in supporting others towards their healing potential.


Too often, the current medical system views our patients as weak, sick or needing to be fixed. Resilience emphasizes strength and learning and helps you to realize your ability to rise above any circumstance.

Holistic Wellness

Health and wellness is about so much more than just diet, exercise, medication management, and freedom from disease. It’s about family, friends, intimacy, money, spirituality, recreation, nature, fulfilling work and career, service, play, laughter, breathing, movement, food, water, sleep, and everything else.


This is lasting change whereby you fundamentally transform how you are being in the world. By empowering your clients and helping them change from the inside-out, you will support them to achieve lasting health, wellness, happiness and fulfillment.
Mindfulness Meditation


In our fast-paced world, helping your clients slow down is where powerful coaching begins.

Board Certification Requirements

This training provides you with 100% of the education and supervised practicum hours needed to sit for the board certification in either Nurse Coaching, Holistic Nursing, or both.

But there are some additional prerequisites required by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation:

Will My Hospital/Institution Pay For This Course?

Around 30% of our graduates have been either partially or fully reimbursed for this training by their employer.

While we can’t guarantee this, we encourage you to talk to your employer since many do have an “education allowance” for continuing education and certifications, offering as much as $2,000-$3,000 a year.

Speak with your manager and human resources department to find out if the Transformative Nurse Coach Program will qualify for this reimbursement.

What is the Difference Between Each Collective?

Each Collective of the Transformative Nurse Coach Certificate Program is virtually identical, with the exception of the start dates.

So, choose the date that works best for you and enjoy the ride!

How Many Nurses in Each Collective?

Each online Collective is comprised of about 30 nurses in total.

We’ve tested this extensively and have found this to be the magic number for maximum engagement and interactive learning.

And to take it one step further, after week 6, we divide your cohort in half one more time.

That way, you’ll meet with an intimate group of 15 incredible nurses every month to discuss case studies, receive expert mentorship from your co-instructor, and practice Nurse Coaching in a live environment.

Doesn’t get much more personalized than that! 

What is a Co-Instructor?
Each online course has a Co-Instructor who is responsible for offering you direct support and personalized feedback every step of the way.

These individuals are powerful Nurse Coaches who have learned directly from Heather and Peter in the past. They’ve demonstrated extraordinary prowess in the field of Nurse Coaching, which is why they were hand-selected for this position.

They’ve received additional training beyond what we provide in this course so that they can go above and beyond for you.

Your co-instructor will be an invaluable resource for you.

Can I sign up with a friend?

Yes, yes, yes!

In fact, we encourage you to sign up with friends and colleagues, because the growth you’ll experience together will be magnified.  

If you are considering signing up for a program, ask yourself:

“Which nurses do I know who might really love to go through this experience with me?”

Do you have to take a certification exam to be a nurse coach?

If you want to become a Board Certified Nurse Coach, you will need to take the certification exam provided by AHNCC after completing our program. While not required, nearly all of our students choose to become board certified, since our program provides you with all of the education and practice necessary to sit for this exam.

Are there any guarantees that I’ll pass the certification exam?

At the time of this writing, we have a 100% pass rate for the certification exam! So while we can’t make guarantees for things that are out of our control, we do a great job of preparing you (and all of our students) for success!

Is this program accredited?

Yes! Our program is peer-reviewed bi-annually by the American Holistic Nurses Association. 

This nursing continuing professional development activity was approved by the American Holistic Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
