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.
FrutrulisticLadee, LPN would you private message me as well? I was considering this health coaching and just want to know how do you get your clients where do they come from? Who is going to pay for such services? I get free coaching through my health insurance company Cigna, of course I pay premiums for insurance. Thank you I appreciate information about the program you are in.
NoI am just weighing my options to determine if you could actually make a real living as a Health Coach full-time or even just part time. I mean how do you get or market your services where clients are willing to pay for them? I have health coach from Cigna free through my health insurance so I wonder, who would actually pay for these services.
Oddobox Coaching is a very lucrative option as people want individualized attention. There are Parent Coaches, Sleep Coaches and more! Yes people will pay for a personal health coach that is separate from insurance companies. Take entrepreneurs, many are very health conscience yet they are often on their own in terms of figuring insurance out...they may not be connected to s Cigna like coach. It's about positioning as well. A good Certification will provide you with marketing and business development support as well...at least that is my opinion. It would be the ethical thing to ensure you can make use of their certification.
