Keith Carlson

I’ve been a nurse since 1996, and I’ve worked in a variety of clinical settings, including home health, community health, case management, public health, hospice, and nursing education. I’ve also held management and executive positions, including Chief Nursing Officer and Director of Nursing.

I’m a Board-Certified Nurse Coach (NC-BC) under the auspices of the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation. I also hold previous certifications in Swedish Massage, Kripalu Yoga, and Laughter Yoga. Previously, I studied the visual arts, dropping out of two Philadelphia art schools in the early 1980s.

My podcast, The Nurse Keith Show, was launched in January of 2015, and offers weekly nursing career advice, information, and inspiration for nurses and healthcare professionals who want to take their careers to the next level.
