Occupational Therapy Accreditation & Certification

 

Accreditation

Mount Mary University’s occupational therapy program has maintained full accreditation since its inception in 1941 and provides a professional education resulting in skilled hands-on practitioners who are client-centered and holistic in their approach to health care.

The entry-level occupational therapy master’s degree program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Suite 200, Bethesda, MD 20814-3449. ACOTE's telephone number, c/o AOTA is: (301) 652-AOTA and its web address is: www.acoteonline.org

Occupational Therapy Certification

Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the national certification examination for occupational therapists administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). Note: A felony or illness that is considered a potential danger to the public may prevent an individual from practice in occupational therapy.

After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR). In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination.
