Occupational Therapy is consistently ranked among the top jobs! The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 29% growth in Occupational Therapy jobs from 2012-2022, much faster than the average growth for other occupations. Ehow.com website lists occupational therapy as #3 in the top 10 jobs, and U.S. News & World Report's Ranking of the Best Health Care Jobs lists Occupational Therapy as #9 and Occupational Therapy Assistant as #13 (out of 38).
Benefits of Membership
Membership in IOTA is growing. This is great news since IOTA is a member-driven organization and relies on the members to operate. Membership dues are used to provide a fall conference, employing a lobbyist to protect consumers and the profession, scholarships, communication through website and newsletters, and encourages networking and professional growth.
Remember that the Iowa Board of Physical & Occupational Therapy uses your email address to notify you of licensure renewal. Be sure they have your current email address. Also make a note in your planner when your licensure must be renewed. Don't let your license lapse because you were waiting for a renewal reminder in the mail!!
