Preparing America’s Most Trusted Workforce to Become Language Nutrition Coaches
Representing a workforce that reaches the largest percentage of the population of new and expectant parents, nurses are uniquely positioned to deliver language nutrition coaching.
Nearly all – 99% – new and expectant parents are seen by nurses between the third trimester of pregnancy and the child’s first birthday.
- Between the third trimester of pregnancy and the baby’s first birthday, there are approximately 14 natural touch points between nurses and the parents and child.
Health education is rooted in the origins of modern nursing and has become an increasingly important role played by nurses.
According to annual polling by Gallup, nurses are the most trusted profession in the United States.
Representing a national workforce of 2.8 million, nursing is the largest healthcare profession.
