Answer

There are several ways you could search for information about this.

Books: COM Library has books about health field careers, and some of them have information about this type of nursing.  Based on some searches I did, the best way to find them is to go to our online catalog (click the WorldCat link below) and search for su:Medicine Vocational guidance.

Articles: Go to our Databases by Subject libguide (linked below), select the Health & Nursing tab, and try searching in the databases listed.  I searched through Academic Search Complete and CINAHL and found that it is more effective to search for "occupational health nursing" than just "occupational nursing".  If you get too many results, you can limit to full-text articles and either select narrower subject headings or add additional terms to your search (i.e. "occupational health nursing" AND career).

Internet: A simple Google search can help you find information about the pros and cons of this career path.  I was able to find some relevant information by searching for life as an occupational health nurse.
