Why not start with a complimentary strategy session?
Every prospective coaching client receives a complimentary 30-minute initial strategy session with me, either by Skype or phone. This conversation allows us to get to know one another, assess your needs, and introduce my coaching style and approach. If we agree that it is indeed a good “fit”, we discuss scheduling, payment, and make an initial agreement about our new coaching relationship.
My career coaching isn’t “cookie-cutter”; there are, of course, certain areas of career development that I address with most clients, but you have the power to guide our relationship and what we address during the course of our work together.
No matter what your needs are vis-a-vis your nursing career, we can create a relationship that is empowering, forward-thinking, and focused on you!
Custom coaching packages:
If you specifically desire coaching regarding nurse entrepreneurship and business, podcasting, writing and blogging, savvy networking, wellness, burnout prevention or recovery, or some other aspect of professional development, I’ll create a custom package just for you! Feel free to email me to explain your desired area of focus. Most custom coaching packages will be modeled on the plans listed below in terms of the number of sessions and other basic logistics.
Nurse Keith’s Career Empowerment Program:
In my Nurse Career Empowerment Program, I offer a holistic process of self-assessment, personal career diagnosis, the creation of a career trajectory plan, specific interventions to activate that plan, and an evaluation and re-evaluation process for the chosen course of action. Sound familiar? The nursing process is the perfect vehicle for assessing your career, and changing it for the better!
Nurse Career Empowerment Plan A:
In this plan, we assess the current state of your career, using written self-assessment tools and an initial coaching conversation to elucidate the deeper truths. Plan A involves fewer conversations, and a larger amount of self-guided assessment and introspective homework than the other plans. This plan is for the motivated individual who just needs a little push and can provide a fair amount of self-accountability.
In this process, we will diagnose the state of your career, create personalized career goals, and manifest a plan for the rejuvenation of your career. You leave with clear steps in place for the achievement of your goals, including:
- feedback on your resume and cover letter.
- a written guide for strengthening your Linked In profile.
- a plan for career growth and enhancement.
- suggestions for the improvement and sharpening of your career development skills, including online and in-person networking, interviewing, and follow-up.
- other aspects of career-building or support that are most important to you.
You have access to limited prn email feedback from me throughout the course of our collaboration.

Investment: Initial fee of $175 for first month, and $150 per month thereafter. A 10% discount is offered for payments of three months or more.
