Biographical Note

The Texas State Association of Occupational Health Nurses (TSAOHN) is dedicated to advancing the field of Occupational Health Care and sustains the professional growth and development of registered nurses working in the field. TSAOHN focuses primarily on providing education and certification, promoting professional recognition, and collaborating with community groups and clients to facilitate the exchange of information. TSAOHN was formed in 1953 under the name the Texas Association of Industrial Nurses (TAIN) as a constituent of the American Association of Industrial Nurses, Inc. TAIN was established in 1952, incorporated in 1966, became the Texas Association of Occupational Health Nurses, Inc. in 1976, and the Texas State Association of Occupational Health Nurses, Inc. in 1988. Today, seven chapter associations (Austin, Dallas, North Texas, Houston, San Antonio, Texas Bay Area, Texas Sabine, and members-at-large) make up TSAOHN. The Sabine Area chapter, formed in 1942, is the oldest chapter in Texas, established in the same year as the national association.
