In fact, work by the Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinics and the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, in partnership with the ATSDR, has pushed to include environmental health in occupational health nursing to the extent that the nursing specialty plans to incorporate "environmental health" into its title.
In support of the proposal are several professional organizations (Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, American Occupational Therapy Association, American Nurses Association, American Public Health Association, American Industrial Hygiene Association and many others) and several labor organizations (SEIU, AFL-CIO and others).
The American Association of Occupational Health Nurses (AAOHN) is the professional association of licensed nurses engaged in the practice of occupation and environmental health nursing.
