Occupational health nursing services vary from business to business. Every business holds its unique set of risks and challenges in relation to the health, safety, and well-being of its population. The OHN must strive to engage a variety of initiatives, both traditional and not so traditional, in order to meet those needs. The OHN must strategize with other leaders in the business when developing and evaluating occupational health programs. The OHN provides a supportive and encouraging force for the business, and it is important to continue to reach for new opportunities. As a professional, the OHN must learn from and share best practices. OHNs must be propellers of new ideas and think outside the box for new and innovative strategies to enhance the health and safety of the workplace. OHNs should always strive to be professional, proactive, and helpful.
