Five new happenings related to neonatal therapy certification that you won’t want to miss this month!
1) In celebration of International Neonatal Therapy Week (INTW) in September, the NTNCB is offering an incredible incentive! Apply for neonatal therapy certification by 9/23/17, and we will send you a flash drive loaded with PDFs of 45 journal articles to help focus your studies for the Neonatal Therapy National Certification Examination. This will save you time and energy during your preparation and put needed references at your fingertips.
2) According to a recent survey, approximately 40% of therapists get fees related to certification reimbursed by their employer. Other hospitals are offering a 3% pay rate increase for therapists with the CNT distinction. Sample letters to use in requests to your employer are available at www.NTNCB.com (under ‘certification’-‘resources’).
3) The NTNCB understands how important it is to ensure therapists working in the NICU have the knowledge and expertise to provide safe and effective care to high-risk infants. We want to reach out to rehab managers to provide education about neonatal therapy and extend a special offer. To include your rehab manager in this special offer, please enter their name and email here https://www.ntncb.com/rehab-managers-information/.
4) We have listened to your requests to see exam study materials prior to neonatal therapy certification application! The study guide and interactive self-assessment are now available on the main NTNCB website by clicking ‘Study Materials’. Here you can assess your knowledge of NICU-related content in order to find areas of strength and challenge. You can then use this to focus your learning.
5) On August 17th, we held a Q&A. If you were unable to attend, the recording will be posted on our website soon.
Neonatal therapy certification identifies physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who have demonstrated the time, knowledge, and commitment to serve high risk infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. Join other experts in neonatal therapy who have achieved the distinction of Certified Neonatal Therapist (CNT).
