Occupational Health Nursing

Occupational Health Nursing (OHN) is a clinical specialty that focuses on the workplace. Occupational health nurses are prepared to assess, diagnose, plan, implement, manage, and evaluate the care of individual workers and groups of workers.

OHN credentials can create opportunities for promotion in your workplace or new job possibilities. Graduates of this Heartland Center program have gone on to work as consultants, administrators and educators, as well as clinical practitioners.

Update: Application Process

The College of Nursing is preparing to phase out the masters in nursing (MSN) degree to be replaced by the doctor of nurse practice (DNP) degree. As a consequence of this transition, the College is no longer accepting applications for the OHN clinical specialty. Please see the Contact Us link if you need more information concerning this change.
