Every day occupational health nurses are given the opportunity to provide the best services possible. The vitality of the profession and the success of outcomes we strive for in the workplace are directly linked to the quality of Occupational Health Nursing research and advancement.  The best ideas for improvement often come from our peers- those who have “worked in the trenches”. The AAOHN Foundation provides opportunities for professional and leadership development to individuals at various stages of their careers. 

Whether you are an individual, chapter or corporation, you can nurture improvements in the workforce and workplace through a partnership with the AAOHN Foundation. The AAOHN Foundation fulfills the mission of the AAOHN by supporting Occupational Health Nurses committed to advancing the greater understanding of occupational environmental health.

AAOHN Foundation Grant funding is dedicated to initiatives that:

  • target needs identified,
  • supports collaboration with our industry partners. 
  • strengthens the profession of occupational health as a national and global discipline,
  • promotes best practices,
  • nurtures tomorrow’s leaders.
