Vital Work Life – Nursing Peer Coaching
VITAL WorkLife offers Nurse Peer Coaching as part of our EAP solutions. Nurse Peer Coaching provides confidential, one-on-one, telephonic peer coaching for nurses with a compassionate listener who understands the enormity of the work, life and family challenges they face — and has walked in their shoes. A nurse peer coach can be a confidential and knowledgeable sounding board for discussing concerns, such as:
- Unusual levels of stress or anxiety
- “Horizontal hostility” or bullying from other nurses or staff
- Grief and Loss
- Substance abuse or addiction
- Balancing work and family responsibilities
- Call VITAL WorkLife at (800) 383-1908 and press 3 to schedule a session with a Nurse Peer Coach

Physician / Scientist Engagement Groups
Collegiality and creating connections with one's peers are critical components of physician satisfaction and well-being. Increased clinical and administrative demands in healthcare can make creating these connections more challenging. Physician / Scientist Engagement Groups are designed to cultivate these vital connections by encouraging colleagues to gather for a complimentary meal and conversation around their physician experience.
For questions and more information on how to sign up for this program, please contact PEGs@mayo.edu. If you would like to start your own Physician Engagement Group, please visit the intranet site to get started.
