Hi dna_nurse:-) You don't have to be a RN to become a health coach. I'm a LPN currently in a program to become a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Being a member a the healthcare field isn't a requirement and one can actually become a wellness coach without the certification as well. Hope this is helpful.
Yes I love it, gives me a chance to work full time and still have lots of free time. The app on my phone also available for an iPad, contains convenient lectures with some that are video which helps me being that I'm a visual learner. Very doable coursework and grad requirements, one year program, and payment plan available to get started right away.
