NYU Meyers College of Nursing is excited to announce a new training program in occupational and environmental health nursing (OEHN), as part of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health funded NY/NJ Education and Research Center (T42-OH-008422). The purpose of the PhD/DNP OEHN training program is to prepare nurse leaders in OEHN. We will prepare nurse scientists (PhD) to conduct interdisciplinary occupational and environmental health focused research that will advance nursing science, inform clinical practice, and influence the education of future nursing professionals. Our DNP graduates will be prepared to provide evidence-based advanced practice clinical care in OEHN, lead interdisciplinary healthcare teams in occupational health and safety, and educate future practitioners in OEHN.

The objectives of the  program are : 1) Equip nurses with the knowledge and skills to conduct interdisciplinary occupational and environmental health research  2) Train nurses to become leaders in occupational and environmental health initiatives, and 3) Prepare nurses to educate future occupational and environmental health professionals.
