What is a Green Nurse?

The Green Nurses are nurses who have completed the Cannabis Health Coach Certificate Program and are working with patients and providers as nurse coaches and consultants. The Green Nurses seek to relieve suffering via safe use of medical cannabis and other progressive tools that support and nourish the endocannabinoid system.

The Green Nurses at Holistic Caring Network bridge the gap between patients, the conventional medical system and the cannabis community. The Green Nurses are decreasing stigma around what it means to feel good, bringing hope and inspiration for growth and healing.

The Green Nurse is a holistic nurse navigator who focuses on Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual aspects of healing using a total health care approach to empower patients to make choices to live their best life. We recognize nursing as the most compassionate of professions and understand all patients are unique, thus requiring diverse approaches to care. The Green Nurses educate on the endocannabinoid system (ECS), cannabinoid therapeutics and other wellness activities to support the ECS to manage symptoms of chronic illness and for optimal health and wellness.
