Subject: OHNs as private providers in agriculture
Hello all! I am a nurse, working on my MPH/MS at the U of Minnesota. I
> hope that you might be able to help me and/or could pass this note on to
> a nurse in your department. I am working on a paper looking at whether
> there is a niche for OHNs as private providers in agriculture. There is
> not much in the literature on the subject, so I have been contacting
> various people to get their opinions on a few questions.
> Are OHNs working in ag/health & safety in the private sector, either
> with a Occ/Health clinic, as a consultant to an insurance company, or
> even as an independent consultant?
> Would someone other than an OHN be more appropriate for such a role?
> If a nurse wanted to try to enter such a market, what would he or she
> need to do to be successful.
> I would appreciate any ideas or insight you may have on this subject.
> Let me know if you know anyone who might have a comment/thought.
> Thank you Calvin Greer
