Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Resources
At Nebraska Methodist College (NMC), we strive to provide high quality Fieldwork education for all students through our strong partnerships within the community and throughout the country. At NMC, students participate in five Level I Fieldwork experiences and two Level II Fieldwork experiences which are embedded throughout the six semester hybrid program.
Students experience the profession of occupational therapy in a variety of practice settings throughout the lifespan. These experiences are designed to enrich didactic content through supervised experiences and participation in selected aspects of the occupational therapy process (Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education [ACOTE], 2007)*.
Two of the Level I Fieldworks are community-based which align with the mission of the institution: As a health professions institution, we provide educational experiences for the development of individuals in order that they may positively influence the health and well-being of the community.
Upon successful completion of all didactic course work and Level I Fieldwork, students complete two Level II Fieldwork experiences. This educational component allows students to actively engage in occupation-based practice and further develop the skills to become competent, entry-level occupational therapists.
