DR. SEARS WELLNESS INSTITUTE CERTIFICATIONS
What Our Nurse Health Coaches Say…
“I enhanced my medical knowledge with the LEAN (Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, Nutrition) principles. I am now working as a health coach, so yes I have changed my whole career to focus on health and prevention. Our society is sick! Medical advances certainly can keep people alive, but disease is on the rise and quality of life is decreasing as medical care becomes more expensive. I love having tools to help people achieve and maintain their own health. Dr. Sears has helped me achieve this!”
“I chose Dr. Sears Wellness Institute because I was looking to expand my nutrition knowledge whilst becoming a certified health coach. I received a refresher on the basics of nutrition, as well as a more in-depth dive into the world of nutrition. The program added to my RN career for discharge/education regarding nutrition.”
“I work in the wellness/preventive side of healthcare and the wellness content of the Dr. Sears program was easy to understand and reiterated lifestyle management which is consistent with my work team’s program. The Dr. Sears program provided me with reminders of some of the things I knew with easy to understand examples to use with my clients. I am using the knowledge to share with my clients. It just makes sense and I believe it is what most people desire and not sure how to get there. I am passionate about health and wellness and want to share it with others.”
“The program benefited me in many ways. I not only improved my personal health habits but also helped many other nurses by sharing my knowledge with them. I shifted my career from bedside nursing to case management where I can help patients on a different level of care. Becoming a certified health coach was instrumental in that career change. Becoming a health coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute has led me on a personal journey to healthy living and has allowed me to pursue my passion in helping others by bringing awareness about disease prevention by adopting healthy lifestyle habits.”
“As a nurse I found the education on disease to be comprehensive and easy to learn! I wish I had this course while I was becoming a nurse!”
“In the coaching setting, the Advanced Coach Training and Techniques (ACTT) course of study allowed me to grow in a new way which clearly has impacted my confidence with one-on-one coaching, using the different methods taught. I am more than thankful that I took the class, it added to both my daily life and my professional endeavors. It gave me many new tools to use in conversations that allowed all persons to have valued ideas and beliefs. It taught me new ways to resolve conflict in a positive way that benefited all involved.”
“I chose the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute because of the practical aspect and how it already had information ready for us to use.”
