For the second year in a row, 100 percent of Newman Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) students passed the Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapy Assistant, administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). The number represents the percentage of students who have taken the test within 12 months of graduation. There is currently no information on how many students took the test.
According to Director of the OTA Program Clint Stucky, Newman, “is blessed to be a part of a university with long experience in health care education, and a mission – handed down to us from the Sisters Adorers – of empowering students to make a difference in this world.”
A recent Newman OTA graduate who passed the licensure exam wrote to the staff of the OTA program saying “I am glad I made the decision to go to Newman University. Newman truly has the best COTA program, and it’s not just me saying that, other COTAs have heard of Newman’s reputation of producing good therapists.”
Stucky said he believes he has some of the best students in the world.
“One thing our students have in common is that they like people, and are interested in helping people who are disabled due to injury, illness, or genetics to be able to do the things they want and need to do, whether that is work, self-care, leisure, or social participation.”
