Our History

NINA was founded (under a different name) in 2018 in response to the growing number of nurses seeking opportunities outside of traditional healthcare settings.

Here is what we have done since:
Brought together 6 nurses to launch our Nursity app
2019: Restructured as we lost some board members to school and other obligations.
2020: Rebranded to Valorecare, a marketplace for professional caregivers. Launched and immediately paused due to Covid.
2021: Launched our first formal online coaching program, helping over 25 nurses in the first year.

2022: Relaunched as NINA, offering an online course and coaching program and a membership community.

2023: Partnered with financial and legal experts to offer specialized services to our members. Provided paid and unpaid coaching and mentorship services to 300+ nurses and close to 1000 coaching sessions at this time. Ran our first annual in-person conference as NINA.

2024: Looking to establish local chapters in five states, expanding our reach and impact.
