Nicole Vienneau is the founder of Blue Monarch Health, PLLC, a Nurse Coaching practice led by Registered Nurses who create actionable wellness plans to make brains and bodies feel alive.
She believes each person holds their own wisdom and power, and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare, which is why she is so passionate about enhancing the power and voice of Nurse Coaches as co-founder of the National Nurse Coach Network. She believes Nurse Coaches are essential to healing healthcare.
Nicole was an ICU RN for many years and suffered compassion fatigue. She left bedside Nursing fearing she had lost her love of caring for patients. What she discovered, was she needed to heal from the daily suffering and stress of the critical care environment. On her journey to healing, she discovered Nurse Coaching which helped her instill joy, self-compassion and self-care into her daily life. She attributes the Nurse Coach Community to her healing, and is why she is an advocate for Nurse Coaching for all Nurses!
