Abstract
The expanded role of the occupational health nurse in alleviating occupational stress is presented, arguing that occupational health nurses must concern themselves with occupational stressors of all kinds. Increasingly, the occupational health nurse is assuming more independent roles in case finding, program planning and implementation, and in assisting workers to cope with an ever widening scope of problems that affect health and productivity. Nurses today have become skilled in taking certain environmental hazard measurements, such as noise levels and air samples. Through health education and counseling the nurse can encourage employees to take indicated medical care or other health protection actions. Nurses are particularly instrumental in mental health problems, for example, by providing counseling and referral for alcohol and drug abuse control. For employees under treatment for mental illness, the nurse must coordinate between the psychiatrist and the supervisor. The occupational health nurses must also remember that there are psychological stressors associated with their duties. These pressures usually result from individual physicians, management and workers.
