Meet Your Coach

Joan Palmeri has very close to 40 years of teaching and program development experience in alternative and remedial education and has successfully coached thousands of new registered nurses and practical nurses since 2005. After several years managing workforce development training with the New York Association for New Americans (NYANA), Joan was recruited to assist immigrant and refugee nurses in several grant programs in New York City.

The Program for International Nurses (PIN) was a grant partnership between the NYC Department of Labor’s Welcome Back Initiative in Healthcare, Beth Israel/Mount Sinai, Met Council, and the Jewish Foundation for the Education of Women. Joan Palmeri developed curriculum and taught workshops for immigrant and refugee nurses to increase reading comprehension and information processing skills for NCLEX and certification exams.

happyNCLEX coaching was developed to support graduates of American and Canadian nursing schools as well as international nurses who struggle to pass licensing exams.
