Jan graduated in 1981 from Foothills Hospital School of Nursing, in Calgary, and began a career that spanned over 30 years of critical care nursing. Working in areas such as adult critical care, Emergency, as a flight nurse with Saskatchewan Air Ambulance and in Obstetrics, she saw the effects of stress, emotional and physical illness, grief, and trauma. Jan saw it as a privilege to be part of the lives of those at every stage of life, from beginning to end.
The longer Jan worked, the more she witnessed the effects of front line stress on the staff that she worked with and so began the journey as she completed courses in Critical Incident Stress Management. Jan went on to complete her Master of Arts in Counselling from Providence Theological Seminary in 2014. After a full career in nursing, Jan transitioned into counselling by spending the 2014-2015 school year doing a counsellor-education teaching fellowship at Providence working with student counsellors completing their practicums.
Jan owns Jan Nerenberg Counselling in Saskatoon, SK., working primarily with trauma. She is a Registered Psychotherapist (RP), with the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO); a Certified Professional Counsellor (CPC) with the Professional Association of Christian Counsellors and Psychotherapists (PACCP); and a retired member of the Saskatchewan Association of Registered Nurses (SRNA). In addition, Jan has also completed certification in EMDR therapy.
Jan is currently an adjunct instructor at Providence Theological Seminary, moderates her local church board and sits as a member at large on her condo board.
Jan holds the membership and continuing education portfolio for PACCP. Having been a part of a college and regulated for her nursing career, Jan felt it was important to keep the standards of the association elevated, while recognising that continuing education and supervision is often different for adult learners and has been working with the national board in that area. Having a voice in the Christian community for psychotherapy is important to her, as well as being involved with FACT-SK, for regulation of this profession.
