Program Advising Sheet
Students in SCC's program are educated in the skills and knowledge required for entry-level practice as a physical therapist assistant. Effective communication with patients, caregivers, and members of the health care team, clinical decision making, and personal and professional development through lifelong learning are some of the requirements of a physical therapist assistant. Students also learn to practice within the legal, ethical and professional standards established by the state of Nebraska and the American Physical Therapy Association. The didactic portion is comprised of classes and labs on SCC's Lincoln campus. The clinical component involves on-site education at facilities that have been pre-approved by Southeast Community College and the SCC PTA Academic Coordinator of Clinical Education. Program graduates become eligible to take the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy Examination and apply for state certification or licensure.
