The Department of Occupational Therapy at Rush University is proud to announce 100 percent of their August 2012 graduates passed the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) exam on their first attempt.
Currently the pass rate for first-time test takers is 88 percent across the nation. This achievement highlights the excellence of our students, as well as the high quality of the academic program and faculty at Rush within this department.
The NBCOT exam is required for all new graduates. It is administered to assure only those with adequate knowledge are able to practice as occupational therapy practitioners in the United States.
We are so proud of our graduates and wish them the best as they begin their occupational therapy careers. For more information on this program and the three-year pass-rate information for first-time test-takers in occupational therapy, please visit our website
