Serving occupational health nurses in Southeast/Southwest, Florida including Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County.
Local chapters are the foundation of the national association (AAOHN) to unite members around common interests and professional issues. Our chapter works to connect members with each other through regular meetings, networking functions, and educational opportunities. We recently successfully amended our bylaws to include all licensed nurses engaged in the practice of occupational and environmental health nursing. Our purpose, beyond networking and promoting continuing education and professional development, is to maintain integrity and character in the nursing profession and to promote the scope of practice and standards for occupational and environmental health nurses. It is also our goal to participate in health policy through monitoring and influencing state legislation and regulation to promote our specialty and profession. There are a myriad of opportunities within this organization for nurses at all levels (LPNs, RNs, APNs) to develop leadership skills, whether you chose to "lead behind the scenes" or in a more direct leadership role. We invite you to participate in the development of your personal and professional development as you support this chapter!
COMMUNITY SERVICE AND VOLUNTEERISM
"OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH NURSES CARE"
Our community service volunteer team, “Occupational Health Nurses Care for Our Community”, is made up of chapter members to support our local communities through local volunteer program/events. Our goal is to not only give back to our local communities through public service, education and advocacy, but to increase public knowledge of occupational health nurses. We hope these services and our "eye catching" volunteer shirts will generate publicity from the media and public as we volunteer in various community events! If you are a member volunteer, spread the word on who we are and what occupational health nurses do!
If you'd like to join our efforts at promoting the image of Occupational Health Nurses and are available for this event, please email me to sign up
Also email any events/community service opportunities that you think would be a good opportunity for our chapter to participate in.
If you have any contacts that could generate media interest in our participation, don’t hesitate to contact me.
