One hundred and twenty-three Ohio employers were surveyed about expectations for occupational health nurse performance of 20 current and desired future activities.
Employers identified activities that (a) the nurse was currently performing, or (b) would be desired in the future, or (c) were not appropriate for the nurse.
Findings showed occupational health nurses are counseling employees, treating illness and injury, evaluating safe return to work, and tracking workers' compensation cases.
Activities most desired in the future are analyses of trends in health programs and study of cost-effective health program alternatives.
Activities most frequently selected require skills of evaluation, budgeting, and cost-benefit analysis.
