Oral Health Initiative

The Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP) Program aims to advance a national nursing oral health agenda whereby interprofessional oral health clinical core competencies are a key component of overall healthcare. The OHNEP Program is committed to developing a nursing workforce with the interprofessional oral health competencies to recognize the importance of oral health promotion and disease prevention as an integral component of nursing practice. OHNEP supports the collaborative of Nurse Practitioners, Midwives, and Registered Nurses as key stakeholders on interprofessional teams across the health system that promote national efforts to expand oral health access, reduce oral health disparities, and improve oral health and overall health outcomes across the lifespan.
