Unlicensed over 3 years? In Oregon,
either retake NBCOT exam or do a Re-Entry Program.
Oregon law requires that a formerly licensed Occupational Therapist or OT
Assistant that has not been licensed in Oregon (or another state) for more than
three years, must either retake the NBCOT exam or go through a Board
approved Re-Entry program.
(5) If the applicant has been unlicensed for more than three years,
complete a board approved reentry program or retake the board-approved national
examination to determine fitness for practice as an occupational therapist.
2) All applicants for
licensure who have passed the NBCOT certification examination more than a one
year ago and have been unlicensed for more than three years will:
complete a Board approved Re-Entry Program specifically designed for
occupational therapists preparing them for re-entry into the field of
occupational therapy; or
retake and pass the NBCOT examination within the previous year.
