Occupational health which covers medicine, nursing, toxicology, industrial hygiene, epidemiology, social and
behavioral sciences, environmental health and ergonomics, is a multidisciplinary field of application. When
evaluated in the historical process, occupational health nursing has progressed in parallel with the developments
in occupational health. Occupational health nursing, which was called as industrial nursing in the early periods,
was born from public health nursing and for this reason, it is a nursing specialization which is more based on
protection. The aim of this review is to evaluate the beginning and development process of occupational health
nursing together with the leaders who lead this process.
