About The Course

As a nurse you have been trained to work with clients to support, educate & empower them.  This is becoming harder and harder to do in the hospital setting. By starting your own mental wellness nursing business, you can use your knowledge and skills in a meaningful way to connect with clients. Nurses are perfectly suited to help individuals through a body, mind, & spirit approach to mental health issues, health promotion, general support, and empowerment. 

Empower clients so they can decrease stress, create goals, build resilience, and implement effective coping strategies. Master empathetic listening and therapeutic communication skills. Help clients meet their goals for mind, body, and spirit wellness. Feel aligned with your work while bringing your passion for nursing to a whole new level by starting your journey today!

You will focus on listening to your clients, supporting them, providing them with education and empowering them to make changes and implement healthy & effective coping strategies. This course will provide a foundation in mental wellness that you can combine with your nursing experience, so that you can connect with your clients and help them achieve their goals.

Please reach out via email (click Contact me button at the bottom of page) if you have any questions. I am happy to hop on a complimentary 15 minute zoom call to answer any questions you may have.
