Abstract
The science and practice of occupational and environmental health nursing are based on a synthesis of knowledge gained from multiple disciplines. It is essential that occupational and environmental health nurses understand the principles of the sciences that provide the theoretic, conceptual, and factual framework of the profession. In addition to the nursing and occupational and environmental health sciences (e.g., toxicology, industrial hygiene, and ergonomics), effective practice in this field requires knowledge and understanding of the public health (e.g., environmental health and epidemiology) and social/behavioral sciences. This chapter provides an introduction and overview of these foundation disciplines.
