Welcome to TSAOHN Online
“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”— Mark Twain
Spring is the season of new beginnings. Fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the earth seems to come to life again! In Texas bluebonnets are blooming and sharing their lovely color with other Texas wild flowers.
Your TSAOHN BOD has been “springing” since our first meeting of the year in January 2016. Your new BOD was inducted at this time. CLICK HERE to meet your BOD
This year 2016 is an off year for state conference so the BOD will remain busy with the other operational business. Last year a complete revision of the TSAOHN BOD Policy and Procedure was begun. At this time we are finishing up the last few revisions and should be completed by the next BOD meeting in June 2016.
TSAOHN fall conference for 2017 is already in the planning stages. So save the date for November 2017.
AAOHN conference and OHN week are just around the corner. Hope many of you have the opportunity to attend or stream live and share the wealth of knowledge that is offered. Don’t forget OHN week is to recognize and celebrate YOU! Celebrate your peers and with your peers the profession of occupational and environmental nurses. Use the resources on the AAOHN website to educate others that OHNs are nurses who work in promoting and protecting the health of workers in the US and many of these nurses also work globally!
TSAOHN is committed to improving and developing the field of Occupational Health Care. The organization’s Mission Statement reflects members’ commitment to one another and Texas communities. The TSAOHN organizational structure supports the professional growth and development of registered nurses working in occupational health by:
- Focusing on education and certification;
- Promoting professional recognition;
- Collaborating with clients and community groups to exchange information;
- Evaluating news issues, challenges and opportunities
So you as OHNs and TSAOHN members are welcome to join me, your BOD in fulfilling this mission. We can only do this as a TEAM. You may contact any BOD member through the website’s Contact Us page and share your ideas with us.
I thank you for your confidence and this challenging opportunity to be of service to TSAOHN. U’all Texas is ready to spring into action! To Health and Safety!
