Where and How to Get Your COHN Certification
The American Board for Occupational Health Nurses (ABOHN) is an independent nursing specialty certification board. ABOHN is the sole certifying body for occupational health nurses in the United States and awards three credentials: Certified Occupational Health Nurse (COHN), Certified Occupational Health Nurse – Specialist (COHN-S) and Case Management (CM).

ABOHN does compile and publish public information about courses that assist OHNs to prepare for the examination and to advance their knowledge of occupational health nursing. This publication, the Education Resource Directory, is revised semi-annually and is available from the ABOHN office free of charge to those qualified for the examination. Please visit their website for more information.
