Certification or Licensing

Licensing is mandatory to practice as a registered nurse. On the other hand, certification is voluntary and can be obtained through the American Board for Occupational Health Nurses (ABOHN). Certification reflects a mastery of the specialty practice in occupational health. Three levels of certification are available, depending on a candidate's level of education and experience: Individuals can become a certified occupational health nurse (COHN), a certified occupational health nurse-specialist (COHN-S), or a case manager (CM).
