In reply to your post, you can go on line to www.aaohn.org
and visit the web site of the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses. I have been an OHN for 17 years and I love it because it deals with preventative health care. The job deals primarily with the pre-employment physicals, worker's compensation, work place injuries, compliance testing, wellness programs, ergonomics and being a liason between the worker and management.
