schools for Occupational Health Nursing

  1. I am looking for schools that offer a MSN in "Occupational Health Nursing". I am interested in working on a masters and I think I would like it to be in occupational health. Thanks for any help. Karen

    I know you are in Florida but I know of one program in California-UCSF. They offer a MSN and you can choose if you want to major in Occ Health NP, Case management, or nurse specialist.

    I'm currently working on my MSN on OHN at D'Youville College in Buffalo, NY. The program is one of several with a MSN degree. This program is a generic one with the student able to choose (within reason) there own focus in nursing. Mine was OHN. However it has to be approved and you must find your own preceptor and clinicals. It requires a lot of self learning, but it is worth it! the faculty are always there to guide you.
    D'Youville also offers a BSN, and BSN to MSN program in clinical nurse specialist, NP in several aresa, Community health nursing, and addictions nursing.
    Good Luck!

    I am currently going through a good program, which allows you to come from any part of the country. Check into the "OJOC" program (on job-on campus) at the university of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Beside the fact that the U of M is one of the best universities in the country, they also have a creative program which allows nurses and physicians from anywhere to fly(or drive) in for 4 longs days a month. It is a 22 month program and at the end, you have a master's in OHN. I am half way done, and so far so good! (I commute from Wisconsin every month)
