An Occupational Health Nurse is a registered nurse practicing in the specialty of Occupational Health & Safety to deliver integrated occupational health and safety services to individual workers and worker populations. Occupational Health Nursing encompasses the promotion, maintenance and restoration of health and prevention of illness and injury.

OUR MISSION

The Association of Occupational Health Nurses of Newfoundland Labrador (AOHNNL) believes in promoting and maintaining the physical, social and psychological well-being of all individuals in their work environment.

Occupational Health Nurses function as independant practitioners, providers of care, consultants, teachers and researchers. They must maintain contact with community agencies to benefit individuals and their families as well as to benefit society as a whole.

OUR HISTORY

The AOHNNL was founded on August 26, 1981 by a group of 12 nurses interested in Occupational Health.

The By-Laws and Constitution of the AOHNNL were adopted by the Association of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland (ARNN) on March 31, 1982. The AOHNNL now has active members and associates from all over Newfoundland and Labrador.
