State of Nevada
Board of Occupational Therapy

The State Board of Occupational Therapy was established in 1993 under the provisions of NRS Chapter 640A to protect the public health, safety and welfare by ensuring that only competent and scrupulous persons practice occupational therapy in the State and persons who practice occupational therapy maintain an appropriate standard of professional conduct.

The Board is responsible for the administration, regulation and enforcement of the practice of occupational therapy in Nevada. The Board licenses qualified occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants and regulates the professional practice of occupational therapy throughout the State.

The State Board of Occupational Therapy is funded from licensing fees collected from occupational therapy practitioners. The State Board of Occupational Therapy does not receive funds from the State General Fund.
