Mission & Vision
Moravian College Occupational Therapy Program Mission
Moravian College Occupational Therapy Program builds on a liberal arts foundation to lead occupational therapy students to a reflective professional practice, a fulfilling and invigorating career dedicated to engaging individuals in meaningful occupations, and transformative leadership opportunities that improve the quality of life, improve the health and well-being of others, and change lives through the power of occupation.
Moravian College Occupational Therapy Program Vision
The vision of the Moravian College Occupational Therapy Program is to be recognized as a revolutionary occupational therapy educational program that offers innovative occupation based community programs while preparing professionals to change lives through the power of occupation.
The entry-level occupational therapy master’s degree program has applied for accreditation and has been granted Candidacy Status by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), located at 6116 Executive Boulevard, Suite 200, North Bethesda, MD 20852-4929. ACOTE’s telephone number c/o AOTA is (301) 652-AOTA and its Web address is www.acoteonline.org. The program must have a preaccreditation review, complete an on-site evaluation, and be granted Accreditation Status before its graduates 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, all states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the NBCOT Certification Examination. Note that a felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to sit for the NBCOT certification examination or attain state licensure.
Students must complete Level II fieldwork within 24 months following completion of the didactic portion of the program.
* As a developing program, graduation rates, program graduates, and National Certification of Occupational Therapists (NBCOT) exam outcome data are not available at this time.
