Career Coaching Resources

Career coaching is an opportunity for teammates to receive career advice and support, including access to resources from a certified career coach. Coaches are also able to help teammates clarify their professional or educational goals. 

Individual Education Coaching

This type of coaching is available through Bright Horizons. All teammates, including PRN teammates can schedule an appointment to discuss personalized education plans, evaluate previous coursework and prior learning, learn about discounts or other benefits available through the Education Network, or receive assistance on the admissions and college financing process.  

  • Log into your EdAssist Portal to schedule an appointment
  • Other individual career coaching is available only to selected Workforce Development participants in the Rise to Success, Education that Works and RN Educational Assistance programs.
