I am taking the PTA exam for the second time. I was out of the field for about 6 years, but I am working as a PTA. I think some sort of study group would really be halpful to me. Count me in.

I am fixing to begin a pta program next week. Is it true once I get a licence in one state, keeping it current, that I can apply and pay for licensure in other states without having to retake the exam? Retaking exams like that 5 years down the road is very difficult for anyone. I am a Cert. Ophthalmic Tech and could not imagine having to take that exam again!

Yes, That is true as long as the state your are applying for has equal or higher requirements for the exam. Every state's rules are a little different so be sure to check their website.

You do not have to retake your exam once you get your license.Passing score is same for all the states. But you have to do credential evaluation of the respective status. Since some states have more credits, they might asked you to fulfill the credits. Thats all. No need to repeat the exam.
Hope this helps!!!

I've been out of the field for quite some time (29 years) :/

I want to work again but I'm not sure what I need to do to do this. Should I go back to school or retake the board? I graduated in 1986 with a Physical Therapy BA from a University in Brazil.

Is it very hard to start all over again? What path should I take if I want to start working again?

I can relate to getting back into the field. I was away for 7 years and I am just returning and let me tell you, it is very hard, especially when you have been studying another field. Not only is other information in your head, but the field itself has made advances without your knowledge. It is almost like being a student again and there is a great deal of focus on insurance, which may at times dictate your progression and documentation methods for your patients. It is hard, but not impossible. You may want to look for an up to date refresher or review course at local schools or become a volunteer. Good luck with your return and I hope that it works out well.

Well, I got a copy of the Giles book, "Scorebuilders PTA Exam: The
Complete Study Guide"! It does seem to break things down pretty good. I confess though, I have been a procrastinator these past
couple of weeks, and haven't done much studying. I really need to get my act together!! My Rehab Director at the facility where I work just hired a PTA for prn work @ $28/hour. I feel like I have
so much catching up to do, I wonder if it's possible to get to that level! I could probably do prn work in that facility, but I'd also work elsewhere !! Would like to find a study group!!

Make no mistake, there is a lot of catching up to do and a great deal of material to cover. The best way to get started is just to get started. I took a break from it all after I took my first exam. It was just to much information and to much pressure, but you don't want to that for to long. One way to start slowly is to take individual cases from your department and start reviewing or looking up their disorders/injuries/diagnosis. I found this helped me perform my job better, it honed my skills, and it also made me realize the more I studied, whether taking the exam or not, the better I became at my job and the more I learned. The information also stays with you better because you actually put it into practice. Good luck to us both and happy studying.

Try working as a PTA. Each state has different rules. You probably can take the licensing exam in California for PTA. You probably can take the licensing exam in Michigan for PT.

Fran, not sure if you know it or not but since you are studying from the 2007 giles book i figured i would fill u in. the test format was changed in 2008 and though im sure the 2007 edition has very similar info the newer edition is right by the new testing criteria. Which I can't really say much because i graduated May 23 and took my test june 12, and failed. So now im starting to get back on the "study train" and hopefully try some things different and pass it in a couple of weeks.

It would probably be easier if you just exchanged email address's. A lot of guests have thiS site as an alert and its kind of frustrating having your cellular go off every few minutes while your on call. Any chance this personal conversation could be taken elsewhere? I love alerts but not this kind thanx ;) -tired mom with a dble shift in a few hours.

I graduated from PTA school 10 years ago this past May. During my last year of college I had my first son, thus graduating when he was 2 weeks old. I have never practiced in the field, nor taken my exam. Now that my youngest of 4 is starting school I want to try and pursue my license. I feel an incompleteness that I never finished and really want this. I don't have a clue where to begin and am looking for any advice. I know so many things have changed over the years and I almost feel as if I am chasing a lost dream.

Yes, because much of my schooling contradicted the Scorebuilders book in some areas (modality parameters, muscle actions, etc) I skipped studying my school stuff and studied strictly from Scorebuilders. The big help is taking the practice exams because there's a rationale along with the correct answers when you are going back over what you got wrong (answers are in the book) so you understand WHY you got it wrong. Also there are other tests in each individual area (musculoskeletal, neuro, etc) in the smaller book that you can take. It's very comprehensive and breaks down everything into what's important and the percentage of each topic that will be on the exam.

Lee's Mom,

You need to look at the practice act in your state. Here in RI if you don't take your exam within 90 days of graduating your schooling doesn't count. Pretty strict here but all states are different. Check with the board in your state, then you can take it from there. Otherwise you're in the dark and don't know which way to go. Good luck!! Hope I can help more.
