Every NZ workplace is a ‘Good Work’ environment: it is healthy, safe and its workers have found the balance between productivity, performance and job satisfaction

New Zealand Occupational Health Nurses Association (NZOHNA) is the professional organisation for Nurses who are interested or involved in Occupational Health and Safety in Aotearoa - New Zealand.

NZOHNA members include those working independently or in private and public sector organisations, as well as students and academics.

Services for Business

Occupational Health Nurses (OHNs) work in partnership with businesses to maintain and improve the health and safety of your employees.

The demand for highly trained and experienced Occupational Health Nurses is on the rise as employers search for ways to improve performance and engagement while mitigating risk of ill health and injury.

OHNs work within the boundaries of legislation and regulation, use evidence based practice and employ advanced skills and knowledge in their fields of expertise to deliver these objectives.

Services for Members

NZOHNA membership offers many benefits. We support the professional development of OHNs through mentorship, career pathway development, our PD resource library and organised education opportunites.
Partnerships with regulators, allied professional bodies and industry associations ensure we have a strong, consistent voice. Local branches give collegial support and the ability to have your input into the NZOHNA strategic direction.
Members have advantages such as liability insurance discounts, subsidised conference attendance and access to the Lesleigh Jones travel scholarship.
