Welcome to the Manitoba Occupational Health Nurses Interest Group website.
 Manitoba’s occupational health nurses are individually and jointly dedicated to the prevention of occupational illness and injury and promotion and maintenance of the health of workers in all occupations.  Occupational health nursing is a specialty within the broader profession of nursing and requires special skills and knowledge in the fields of occupational health and safety education, counseling, environmental health, rehabilitation, human resources and ergonomics.  The Occupational Health Nurse acts as the liaison between the workplace and the community in issues related to occupational illnesses and injuries.

Tuesday, November 20th
1:30 - 4:00 pm
Location: 60 Osborne Street North


Education : On May 31, we became governed by The Regulated Health Professions Act . Join us November 20 from 1330- 1600  in person or by phone to learn about what this means to OHN practice. We’ll review how this act has impacted the use of standing orders and other key aspects of OHN practice. Fellow member Bernice Irvine, Manager of the WRHA Occupational Health Services, will share her experience in adapting processes and procedures for the Act. We anticipate a lively discussion based on the facts, which will help dispel confusion around this topic.
