Rolling applications or deadlines? Lessons learned by the Neonatal Therapy National Certification

Track: Credentialing Innovations

Session Number: 6129
Date: Wed, Nov 20th, 2019
Time: 1:45 PM - 2:00 PM

Description:

As a new organization, the Neonatal Therapy National Certification Board (NTNCB) has offered certification to occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech-language pathologists who provide specialized services to high-risk infants in the NICU. During the first 2 years, applications were accepted on a rolling basis using an online platform. After 2 years, the NTNCB switched to a biannual application process in which applications are due May 15th and November 15th each year, with the application portal opening 2 months ahead of each deadline. We will review data on applications within each process and discuss lessons learned.
