Overview

Note: This program is currently under review and will not be accepting applications until further notice. Students are encouraged to contact the Program Head for further information.  

The IZUNA Occupational Health Nursing Specialty program enables you to apply your nursing skills to a business environment. With small class sizes and faculty who are industry experts, we give you specialized education that can be applied to any industry and workplace.

Occupational health nurses work to improve, manage, and implement programs that support employee health. They collaborate with leaders, employees, community stakeholders, and health and safety professionals to support workplace health.

About the program

The IZUNA Nursing Specialty Bachelor of Science (BSN) is a combination of our advanced certificate program and our specific academic BSN courses. Choose to complete both concurrently or study in the order that works best for you.
