Certified occupational health nurse retired status recognizes certified nurses who have permanently retired from the active practice of occupational health nursing and wish to convert their credential to retired status. ABOHN will issue a certificate and wallet card that reflects your retired status. This status change allows you to use the “COHN/COHN-S and CM Retired” status.
To gain retirement status, there is a one-time fee of $100.00.
The status of retired is considered a permanent change. Return to active status will require retaking the certification examination.
