The Alberta Occupational Health Nurses’ Association (AOHNA) will be moving forward with the “Light the Lamp” social media campaign again this year. This campaign is intended to increase public awareness and knowledge about the role and value of occupational health specialty nursing practice. The association encourages nurses to submit videos for judging and recognition of their contribution to occupational health that showcases the unique skills and abilities of occupational health nurses and the unique settings in which they work. This campaign also provides the opportunity for nurses to develop and enhance their skills and abilities working with new and evolving technology that will expand their capacity in the workplace.
AOHNA is pleased to announce that the University of New Brunswick has agreed to continue to be the national educational sponsor for the social media campaign. The UNB is a dynamic learning environment and offers an occupational health nursing certificate program that allows for open enrollment and distance education.
“UNB is excited about this opportunity and what it brings to our university – promoting and investing in occupational health is a long-term strategic business decision – as fundamental as organizational learning and development.”
Ian Allen, Executive Director, University of New Brunswick
The AOHNA executive is excited to work with the University of New Brunswick. This education institution understands the big picture, recognizes the aging demographic trend of the workforce and supports the need to build capacity for nurses who work in occupational health specialty practice.
