Occupational Health Nurses are leaders in public health in the workplace setting. Their role is pivotal and it is, therefore, imperative that their training provides them with the necessary knowledge and competencies.
NPAG’s Clinical Professional Development for Occupational Health Nurses training module programme is specifically aimed at newly qualified OH nurses, and nurses/technicians working in Occupational Health. In a number of instances they have also proven beneficial for nurses at different stages of their development. The intention is to provide nurses with the daily clinical and professional skills and experience that they require to undertake their duties. Those attending will gain clinical skills, which will serve to support further academic qualifications and training.
It is our recommendation that Occupational Health Nurses with 2 years or less experience should attend. Applicants are encouraged to attend as many or as few modules as they feel necessary.
For additional information and to discuss your training requirements, please contact Gemma Aitchison.
