NBCOT Exam Results

To become a registered occupational therapist (OTR) and practice occupational therapy, students must pass the NBCOT (National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy) exam. Many states also require licensure to practice; however, you should review the requirements for the state you wish to practice in.

Graduates of the Program will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist, administered by the National Board of Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the graduate will be an occupational therapist, registered (OTR). In addition, most states require licensure to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. A felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT Certification Examination or attain state licensure.
