    Hi Mauler,

    I don't have any experience with this type of nursing career in Canada, but there is an organization in Canada, Canadian Occupational Health Nurses Association, Inc. They have a good website you may want to take a look at: Canadian Occupational Health Nurses Association - Improving the health and safety of workers by speaking with a national Canadian voice.. This link shows you how to prepare for the OHN certification testing in Canada. Occupational Health Nursing Certification | CNA – AIIC.

    Best wishes,

    Sue Salisbury, Maui

    You will have to apply for a nursing license in the province that you want to work in.You will have to meet their requirements (you will need a BSN)and pass the CRNE. Then you will have to apply for a work visa or immigration.Once you get your via and license you can as an occupational nurse. A friend of mine works as one in a large factory and she has no extra certifications.
