What exactly is Occupational Health Nursing?
Jun 13, '02
OHN is a specialized field in nursing born from the concepts and principles of public health nursing. The focus is on health maintenance; prevention of diease, illness, and injury; detection and elimination of workplace health hazards; clinical education; research; and even the movement towards entrepreneurship.
I love OHN. My specialty is in the agricultural industry. Whether it is in the auto industry or agricultural, or whatever, the focus of OHN is the workforce population, and their health. OHN, like any field of nursing, is exciting, autonomous, and can branch off into anything you desire!
