Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2009
The new area of RN health coaching provides an option to overworked nurses. Despite the fact that there is still a nursing shortage in this country, changes brought on by the economic crisis America is facing have caused nurses to work more hours, with more patients and under more stress. Companies such as L.I.T.E. Therapeutics offer training in the field of health coaching and offer a business start-up program that provides nurses with a way out of the traditional healthcare system and increased career control.
The team at RNHealthCoach.com, a leading provider of RN health coaching services is astonished with the change in the nursing crisis caused by today's recessionary economy. The Journal of the American Medical Association pointed out in late 2008 that the nursing shortfall was stabilizing. Economic shifts have caused nurses to delay retirement, increase workloads from part-time to full-time and even brought some retired nurses back to work. What this means is that the shortage of nurses is no longer as critical as it once was.
Hospitals like all other big businesses have been affected by the economic crisis in this country. The American Hospital Association reported earlier this year that half of the hospitals countrywide have downsized their workforce. According to a press release issued by this group on April 27, 2009 " Recent employment information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirms that hospital employment is no longer growing and that the number of mass layoffs for hospitals reported in February was more than double what it was a year ago."
These layoffs include nurses. However, people are still getting sick and being hospitalized. A visit to any busy ER proves that. The nurses that are left have no choice but to pick up the slack and take care of the abundance of patients in their care. Higher stress and heavy workloads make for poor working conditions for RNs.
RNHealthCoach.com offers a program which allows nurses to learn patented techniques of health coaching and provides certification in such techniques. It also equips RNs with a business-in-a-box which provides them with the information, tools, coaching and practical business advice needed to start their own business in no time. It is a revolutionary alternative to traditional RN jobs. RN health coaches get the personal satisfaction of long term contact with their patients and seeing them achieve their health-related goals. In addition, the RN Health Coach opportunity is flexible enough to be a part-time or full-time job.
As discussed in the Journal of the American Medical Association by Drs Ludwig and Pollack, earlier this year, economic downturns lead to inactivity and poorer nutritional choices than usual, especially by those predisposed to obesity. Such consequences of the poor economy make the market ripe for nurses to enter field as RN Health Coaches and help guide those suffering from obesity back to good health. Dwayne Adams, RN, MS of RNHealthCoach.com states "Nurses have found a solution to their current situation by branching out and providing skills to the public as an RN Health Coach."
RNHealthCoach.com is the premier online listing site for certified RN health coaches in the United States. The company also specializes in offering certification courses for health coaches, as well as a business-in-a-box option for RNs who are looking to diversify their income and take control of their own career. Using the L.I.T.E. Therapeutics method, RN Health Coaches offers an unparalleled method of losing illness through encouragement and losing inches through education.
