Heads up Nevada OTs, your deadline is less than 2 months away! That means it's time for little refresher on all things continuing education in the Silver State - or the Sagebrush State, or the Battle Born State, take your pick. In this brief review we'll cover all of the major aspects of the renewal process that concerns the CE requirement.
If you need a more in-depth review, there's no better place than the source: the State of Nevada Occupational Therapy Board website. Be sure to always reference your state's board rules as they are subject to frequent revisions. Now let's get started on this mini-review.
Unlike many states with a biennial deadline, OT practitioners in Nevada are required to complete the license renewal process annually with a license expiration date of June 30th. Both occupational therapists and OT assistants are required to complete 10 hours of continuing education, which may be obtained through both live seminars or with online CE courses with no limitations on the latter. If the online CE option suits your style the best, be sure to select a provider that is approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association as the courses provided are automatically accepted by the state.
