Occupational Health Nursing Jobs

Occupational Health Nursing jobs prevent job related injuries and illnesses, especially with positions that can be deemed as hazardous. By developing, implementing, and evaluating policies to promote safety on the job, an individual with an occupational health nursing job promotes productivity amongst workers while encouraging their responsibility for their own health.

The level of education needed for these careers begins with becoming a registered nurse through a Bachelor's of Science degree in nursing from an accredited educational program. These programs can be found around the country and can take around 4 years to complete. Occupational health nursing training may also lead to a master's or doctoral degree depending on the job sought and the minimum level of required education. The National Council Licensure Examination must also be passed as it is necessary to become a registered nurse.

According to the Bureau of the Labor Statistics there is an expected 22 percent increase in employment over the course of the 2008 to 2018 decade. This rate of employment will be significantly faster than the national average for all occupations with the demand in employment related to several factors. A rising elderly population, advances in healthcare technology, and broadening healthcare services will create highly favorable job opportunities for qualified job seekers.
