2014 Grant Recipient

Congratulations to Nancy Clover, RN, COHN-S, FAAOHN as the 2014 NEAOHN Grant Recipient

Nancy Clover, Massachusetts


Nancy developed a unique approach to introducing safety and OHN to teens with her presentation, "If There was an Occupational Nurse at the North Pole".  As teens enter the work force it is important that they identify hazardous situations and feel empowered to take corrective action. She described the role teens can play in identifying job hazards and ways to improve safety.  There is also a need to attract new people into the field of occupational health.  One way to do his is to educate high school students on the role of the OHN in the workplace.
