Whether you are an aspiring PT, OT, OTA, PTA, or SLP, you have dedicated years of hard work, hundreds of thousands of hours studying, you finally graduated and have a diploma in your hand! Congratulations!! But you still have a question in mind… what do you need to do to begin working?

As a therapist, it is important to review licensure requirements, guidelines and think ahead to the future about what happens when it comes time for licensure renewal. On top of this, it is also important to stay on top of updates in your state. What is being talked about? What can change? Where are these changes discussed? To maintain and uphold licensure, while also staying on top of work and delivering the best care possible, being aware of all state licensure requirements and updates is crucial.

Here are some helpful links to guide you in the right direction to staying on top of all things licensure!
