VITAL WorkLife offers Nurse Peer Coaching as part of our EAP solutions. Nurse Peer Coaching provides confidential, one-on-one, telephonic peer coaching for nurses with a compassionate listener who understands the enormity of the work, life and family challenges they face — and has walked in their shoes. A nurse peer coach can be a confidential and knowledgeable sounding board for discussing concerns, such as:
- Unusual levels of stress or anxiety
- “Horizontal hostility” or bullying from other nurses or staff
- Grief and Loss
- Substance abuse or addiction
- Balancing work and family responsibilities
In addition to being Registered Nurses, our Nurse Peer Coaches are also teachers, licensed therapists, counselors and coaches. They have extensive clinical experience in a variety of settings allowing them to understand, support and advise nurses in almost any situation.
