As a registered nurse and new mom, I often felt torn leaving the house for my shift at the hospital. I loved working with patients and making a difference, but I didn’t love the long hours that kept me from my little one. 

Becoming a sleep and parent consultant has allowed me to nurture my passions, enjoy a fulfilling career, and care for my family.

Hundreds of my students have now had that same experience—and I want the same for you!

Also, having Violet's continued support for six months after the completion of the course was great. the reason I chose this program, and it makes me feel confident to keep going. "


"I had a great experience with IPSP. The best part is being part of a community where we can ask questions, support each other, and learn from our experiences. The self-paced learning option offered by this course did not force me to travel or spend a lot of money. I could easily work on it on my own time and the information is always there for me to refer to. "
