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.
