Hello Everyone,

Do anybody have any idea about OHNP job duties? what is their salary range in NY? what is the scope of growth professionally? Is anybody working as an OHNP currently and how are they doing?

Thank you,

VaD

I work for Concentra- They are an occupational medicine/urgent care company. I currently work as an occupational health NP and love my job. I believe they are in New York as well. Check them out. PM me for any questions.

What is your shift? Do you also promote wellness programs for employees? Or it is strictly urgent care and occupational health?

If you work at one of our centers it is 8-5pm Monday through Friday with no weekends, and no calls.

If you work at an onsite clinic (meaning you are based at a company as a contractor but work for Concentra) your hours are basically defined inthe terms of your contract- so mine is 7-4pm Monday through Friday with no weekend provider coverage.

I strictly do occupational med since I am contracted to a large vendor. In the urgent care you will do both occ med and urgent care, department of transportation physicals (which I do as well) , hearing tests, fit tests etc.

Yes I am looking for this kind of urgent care where they have no weekends and work M to F for 8 hrs. I don't think they have any clinics in NY area but I will keep looking if they have anything in Connecticut or New Jersey. Do you need any special certification for Occupational medicine?

Not at all- I started off as a new grad and am almost finishing up my 18 months!  We have plenty of clinics in New Jersey!!
