Why is the NSHC not listed with the NBHWC?

The NSHC has higher certification eligibility criteria than the NBHWC. NSHC requires a current license, registration or certification to assess, plan, treat, implement and/or evaluate interventions in the clinical setting.

The NBHWC includes programs that certify non-clinicians as health coaches, while the NSHC certifies only those with an active clinical license to practice. Due to this difference, the NSHC has created a path to a Nurse Coach Board Certification (NC-BC) credential for Nursing professionals.
