Hello, I'm brand new to Occupational Health Nursing. I've been browsing for On-line resources and other OHN's to network with. It doesn't seem like there are very many OHN's that visit these boards.... Read More

    Thanks Wayne.. I checked the first site, and got the answer I needed.. I'm an LPN, so I don't qualify right of the bat, lol.. Just what I figured.
    Hi Mass I'm an LPN and I work as a OHN. I'm new to OH only 6 months. But I love it. It has given my nursing skills some sharpening for sure. I had worked LTC for years and I'm definately seeing things that I had to study all over again. Getting into OHN was easy, well aside from that behavioral interview. That was a "tuffie." Good luck to you.
    Hi to all you other OHN's Glad to see there are more of us...

    So where did you obtain your OH NP from? How long ago was it? I am looking for an online NP program.

    I've written our corporate Alcohol and Drug policy. We haven't run into any disability issues that we haven't been able to accomodate.

    Occ Health here ( see name

    I've been here a little over 9 years. Was contract nurse, then Supv of contract nurses, and got hired by the customer. I love my job. I have a great deal of automony, and my opinion is regularly sought, on any variey of issues.

    I have one other nurse working on my shift (afternoons), and together we are responsible for 2600 employees. We do everything from passing ASA, to OSHA recordkeeping, to responding to inplant emergencies. I just recently started our pulic access AED program.

    Hi all. I'm sort of a hybrid..Occ Health and Community Health RN. I'm certified in Rehab which made me an attractive hire to an industrial Occ Health position years ago. Now I work solo for a state DOT overseeing licensing health issues for commercial drivers and school bus drivers. I do policy analysis, case management, public outreach and long range planning for my states 4 million drivers.

    I love the autonomy and the respect, which I never got in a hospital setting. I definitely recommend anyone interested get in touch with their local chapter of AAOHN...they are very active where I am. My Rehab RN organization was completely inactive so it was a thrill to get involved with a motivated and energetic group like AAOHN.

    Hi all.
    Nice to have you join us. I enjoyed AAOHN, too. However, my employer wouldn't ante up for the membership fee for the last two years, so I let it go. They have a wealth of information though.
