Business As Wellness,Weight loss or RN Health Coach?

  1. 0
    Ive been hearing a lot of talk about RNs working as wellness coaches, helping people to lose weight, stop smoking, fight disease, etc.

    Has anybody heard about this as well?

    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.

    Hi, I tried to respond to the last PM, but it appears that it didn't send. Will you PM me your email address?
