For over 25 years, the AOHNP has been the UK’s leading professional organisation dedicated to developing and promoting the leadership and practice of occupational health nursing.
Among the benefits we offer to our members are:
Two major annual events, the Ruth Alston Memorial Lecture in March and the Good Practice Forum in October, which in 2018 reflect our theme of Diversity in the Workplace;
Networking opportunities, peer support and advice via our Networking Directory, our Facebook and LinkedIn groups, a new dedicated Support Line, and a new Regional Director for 2018 promoting local groups across the UK.
Scholarships – the AOHNP offers bursaries of up to £100 to enable members to attend events or online courses, purchase books and educational material, or undertake research projects which contribute to their professional updating and continuing professional development.
Online access to resources from ourassociates such as People Alchemy, Vitalograph and Mindshift.
Communications from our editorial team ensure up-to-date information on a variety of subjects from health and OH news stories, innovative OH practice, education, leadership, disability management, research, legal issues or anything else members would like to share, via our bi-monthly Newsletter and OH Today journal.
Support from our sponsors – external support from sponsors helps us, as a not-for-profit organisation aiming for charitable status, to meet our objectives; their support comes in the form not only of funding but also the sharing of resources and training materials and other opportunities.
In 2017, our members voted overwhelmingly to merge with the Faculty of Occupational Health Nursing (FOHN), which is to launch on 1 October 2018.
Our united organisations will move forward together to promote our combined vision; setting national standards for training and development of OH nurses, supporting practitioners in evidence-based practice and engagement with key stakeholders to raise our professional profile and promote, preserve and protect the health of the working population we serve.
