But the problems feel so daunting you’re unsure where to start.

If you answered yes to any of these, you’re on the right website!

Hey, I’m Claire 👋🏼

I’m Dr. Claire Phillips, an ER nurse turned Healthcare Change Specialist.

I’ve been a frontline nurse and a nurse leader. Now, I help nurses change our healthcare systems - and the world. 

I founded Nursing the System for nurses just like YOU, as a project to help you heal the system -- and design a career you love while doing it!

You have a critical role to play in making the change you want to see. And I want you to have the tools you need to do it.


I support nurses via coaching, workshops, and courses. I also work with organizations who want to train their teams at scale.

I’m so glad you’re here!

Here’s how we’re going to
change the world 🌍 :

Ever noticed how the major problems we face seem interconnected (climate change, structural racism, healthcare inequality, wealth disparity, etc.)?

That’s because they ARE.

These big, messy problems are systems challenges -- aka super complex problems without a simple solution.

To change the world, we must change the world's systems…

Enter: Systems Thinking 💭

Systems thinking is a cognitive framework, a language, and a set of tools you can use to make sense of messy problems + design solutions that last.

As a systems thinker, you will

  • See complex problems clearly, so you go beyond the 'bandaid' fixes to address the deeper problem.

  • Emerge as a trusted leader, so when you speak, people listen.

  • Make an impact, so you know your time spent in healthcare was meaningful.

And guess what? 

You already use systems thinking when caring for your patients. 👩🏽‍⚕️

👉🏼 You see your patients as whole people.

👉🏽 You understand that health is complex - and means more than the absence of disease.

👉🏿 You channel the expertise of many professions + specialists into the direct care you provide for patients.

The next step is to take what you’re ALREADY doing at the patient-level — and apply it to your workplace and the world. 

After 10+ years of studying healthcare systems and working inside of them,

I’ve built a systems change toolbox for you

full of free resources + advanced curriculum.

I get it + have thoughts.
