It May Be Cold Out, But Things Are Heating Up at OccupationalTherapy.com

Fawn Carson, MS, OTR/L, ATP


Happy March!  Yes, it is still cold in the Northeast!  We have many exciting things happening this month.

NBCOT Renewal

For many, it is time to renew your NBCOT certification.  What better place than on OccupationalTherapy.com!   We have over 300 courses in 20+ topic areas in a variety of formats (live, video, audio and text), all accessible 24/7.  

March is MS Awareness Month

The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) recognizes March as MS Awareness Month.  MSAA urges everyone to help raise awareness of multiple sclerosis throughout your community and help improve the lives today for people with MS and their families.  We can help build your skills with these two great courses in our library:  Imbalance and Falls in People with Multiple Sclerosis and It Takes a Village: Multiple Sclerosis and Fall Prevention.

Live Courses-March

We have a great line-up of LIVE courses in March.  These are a great way to hear experts in our field present in an interactive classroom (in the comfort of your office or home).  We are also mobile if you are on the go.

Joining occupationaltherapy.com has been one of the most inspiring things I've done for my OT practice. I found courses that related directly to my niche mental health practice and was able to connect with leaders in the field. 

 

Check out her site as she has a lot of terrific information to share!

 

As always, thanks for reading and stay warm.

 

Happy learning,
