OT Traditonal & Weekend video
The OT faculty members have exciting news to share. The latest information on the Misericordia University Occupational Therapy Class of 2012 NBCOT examination pass rate is just in. ALL 24 OUT OF THE 24 weekday program entry level M.S. OT graduates passed the board exam on first attempt! Thus the weekday graduates have a 100% pass rate this year! We eagerly await hearing how our weekend OT 2012 graduates, who will be taking the board examination this fall, do on this important examination.
Misericordia Occupational Therapy Entry-Level MS Program Graduates achieved a 92% overall pass rate for 2009, 2010, and 2011.
The Misericordia University Occupational Therapy Department has been providing excellent occupational therapy education for over 25 years. We have a five year entry level BS/MS program for students who are embarking on their college careers. We also have a weekend program for individuals who have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than occupational therapy. For those who are already practicing occupational therapists, we have post-professional educational programs which include a post-professional pediatric certificate and a post-professional doctoral degree program.
We have two very active student organizations, including the Misericordia University Student Occupational Therapy Association and Pi Theta Epsilon, the Occupational Therapy honor society. We also have very experienced and qualified faculty and staff members who are eager to serve our students. Our alumni serve as occupational therapy leaders in clinical practice, research, professional associations, and administration.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about our programs.
