    The group’s main objective is to recognize all Nurse Practitioners who, through years of advanced education, professional development and training, have dedicated themselves to provide the highest-level of care in the field of occupational medicine.  Participants will have a focused section where opportunities for professional development include the development of competencies and certification criteria for nurse practitioners working in Occupational and Environmental Medicine.  This focused section will also serve as a forum for discussion of solutions to clinical and administrative barriers of the effective implementation of full practice.
