Your work as a TNC can be applied to all clinical settings and in nurse coach private practice.

TNC trained nurses can bring valuable knowledge to every clinical care team.

• Cardiac care

Bring Clinical Meditation and Imagery Into Your Work

  • TNC is not focused on pathology and diagnosis. It is pro-active, skill-based, health-promoting. It is also educational – guiding patients to awaken their deeper resources in difficult times.
  • These deeper resources are inner peace, guiding inner wisdom, life purpose and oneness.
  • The transpersonally trained nurse has the skills to awaken these deeper resources which objectively exist in each patient.
  • The awareness, imagery and energy skills are safe, effective, time-tested and easy to learn. They require no predetermined belief or mindset and are appropriate for a multi-cultural patient population.

Education Through Self-Reflection

The beauty of studying and specializing in TNC is that you can only become better at it by directly exploring your own transpersonal nature more often. In doing so, you bring a deeper presence and knowing to the people you are helping as well as enriching yourself. It is an approach that can be creatively adapted and integrated into all areas of nursing practice.

“I often have difficulty preparing for certification exams when just using textbooks & other written source material. This online course enriched the material helping me retain the information because it is fleshed out with exploration and examples of concepts. I would recommend this course to others who want a more enlivened approach to learning. Very helpful prep for the NC-BC exam.
