Board certification demonstrates knowledge, proficiency and excellence in the field of occupational health.
In 2021, ABOHN conducted a survey of our credential holders in Active status. The purpose was to define the ROI/Cost avoided in workplaces that have an Occupational Health Nurse.
The American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS) conducted a national poll of 2,200 adults in 2020 to investigate the importance of specialty board nursing certifications
- Results found that 75% of adults think it is important for all nurses to have a specialty board certification in a relevant field
- The poll results show support of requiring certification for employment
After learning that board certified specialty nurses are committed to life-long learning and maintaining their certification, 74% of the adults polled were more likely to seek medical care from a certified specialty nurse
