PTA and OTA information sessions to be held at JSCC

The Physical Therapist Assistant and Occupational Therapy Assistant programs at Jackson State Community College will host two information sessions for those interested in learning more about the programs. There will be two sessions on Monday, March 16 from noon to 1 p.m. and again from 5 to 6 p.m. Both sessions will meet in conference room 224 of the Jim and Janet Ayers Center for Health Sciences.

Both programs are designed for students who intend to begin careers in their respective fields upon graduation. Graduates of Jackson State’s PTA and OTA programs are eligible to apply for licensure in any state and, if approved by that state, sit for the National Physical Therapy Examination or the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy.
