COHNA-ACIIST Request for Qualifications – Practice Standards
COHNA-ACIIST is seeking an experienced Occupational Health Nurse (OHN) to review and update the COHNA-ACIIST Practice Standards to accurately represent the present skill set and present scope of occupational health nursing practice in Canada.
Occupational Health Nursing is diverse and continues to grow and adapt to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of the Canadian workforce. COHNA-ACIIST Practice Standards were last updated in 2003 and no longer accurately represents the present skill set and scope of occupational health nursing practice in Canada.
The intent of these standards is to provide a guide to the provision of comprehensive, quality nursing care. Therefore, the standards suggest more than minimum, safe nursing care; they reflect excellence in occupational health nursing practice and, as such, are intended to assist OHN’s to improve their nursing care.
Please complete and submit the attached Request for Qualification by April 15, 2019 for consideration.
