You really do t need to have the certification to work as an employee health/occupational health nurse. You just have to know up to date health care employees required vaccines from CDC, PPD test. On you resume, focus on you safe medication/vaccines administration.

If I were looking to hire an Occupational health nurse, I would be looking for experience in case management or employee health. There are varying degrees of employee health si I would look at each one. I believe to sit for certification you need 1 year of actively working in the area and I believe a BSN.
