Accreditation

The School of Occupational Therapy has existed since 2005 as a Master’s Degree program and later transitioned to an entry-level doctorate degree in 2021 (Master’s Degree no longer being offered).

In April 2018,  the School of Occupational Therapy achieved a seven-year full accreditation for the entry-level doctorate degree by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929. ACOTE’s telephone number, c/o AOTA, is 301-652-AOTA.

Graduates of the Touro University Nevada School of Occupational Therapy will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be an Occupational Therapist, Registered (OTR).

In addition, most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) Certification Examination.

A felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the NBCOT Certification Examination or attain state licensure.
