Ohio Board of Nursing -
Community Health Workers


The Ohio Board of Nursing regulates licensed community health workers (CHW) in Ohio consistent with Ohio Revised Sections 4723.81 through 4723.88 and Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 4723-26. 

Are you a CHW or are you an employer/supervisor who works with CHWs in Ohio? The Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center (GRC) on behalf of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is conducting a statewide CHW capacity assessment to understand the current CHW landscape in Ohio and how CHWs are currently utilized. The assessment will result in recommendations to improve CHW practice in Ohio. The Ohio Board of Nursing is working with the Assessment team to help promote the successful completion of the CHW Assessment.

The assessment team needs your help! Please complete one of the 10 minute surveys below by May 11th and pass it on to any CHWs or CHW employer/supervisors that you know!
