Janet Booth RN is a hospice and palliative care nurse who now works as a board-certified integrative nurse coach around issues of aging, illness and dying. Her 30 years of nursing include being a hospice nurse at the bedside, a palliative care nurse in a major medical center, and an employee health and wellness nurse for a large hospice organization.
In her work as an end-of-life nurse coach she supports people in navigating conscious aging and serious illness, helps families to talk more openly about end-of-life priorities, and provides health coaching for both professional and personal family caregivers.
She serves as associate faculty for certification programs through the International Nurse Coach Association, including a new program starting in the fall of 2016 called End-of-Life Nurse Coaching and co-created the course “Sacred Journey: Being Present with Aging, Illness and Dying” in the Washington DC area.
