In February 1981 a group of Hospital Employee Health Nurses met to network and exchange ideas, information, policies and procedures, and best practices unique to the hospital setting.
As a result of this exchange the New Jersey Hospital Employee Health Nurses Association, an allied organization of the New Jersey Hospital Association, was formed.
The Association meets six times a year, (February, April, June, September, October and November), offering continuing education, contact hours and networking opportunities.
Members participate in professional activities supporting the pursuit of excellence in occupational health care services. The Association serves as a resource for professionals responsible for institutional compliance with various regulatory agencies impacting occupational health. The Association supports professional growth and development and encourages members to voluntarily seek certification as occupational health nurses.
A Nominating Committee, selected by the President, oversees the nomination and election of officers. Nominations are made in September and voting is conducted by ballot. All active members are eligible to vote.
An Executive Board provides leadership to the association members.
Standing Committees include Membership, Marketing, Education, Employee Health Policy Sharing, and the Nominating Committee.
The organization offers scholarships and selects a Nurse of the Year to be recognized for the professional accomplishments and contributions.
