PT Settings in Oregon
As a new grad physical therapist, you have probably heard a lot about the different settings you can work in. You may already feel drawn to a certain setting or you may have no idea where your heart lies. With Advanced Travel Therapy you will be able to test the waters, hone your skills, and explore. Below you will find short descriptions of a few of the settings you will find in Oregon that you can choose from with your Advanced Recruiter.
Patients visit outpatient facilities when they do not need to be admitted into short-or long term care settings. For the most part, PTs in this setting will see patients with orthopedic/musculoskeletal issues, or neuromuscular injuries or impairments. These PTs are usually invested in showing patients how to self-manage concerns, regain range of motion, lessen pain, and recover from or avoid surgery.
The annual mean wage for this setting is $87,560.
Skilled Nursing Facilities
SNFs will provide acute or long-term care for patients. A new grad working in a SNF will see variety of conditions in the facility and learn along the way. PTs in SNFs may offer care in many areas including but not limited to pain management, rehabilitation for orthopedic injuries or joint replacement, and illness recovery. Although the majority of patients may be geriatric in SNFs, these facilities do treat anyone who is in need of skilled nursing.
The annual mean wage for this setting is $91,490.
During home health assignments, PTs usually offer services within the patient’s home. There are times when the PT is asked to go to a caregiver’s home, SNF, group home, emergency room, or elsewhere, but it is still considered a home health assignment. Like SNFs, the majority of home health patients will be senior citizens, however, any individuals requiring care in their place of residence (even pediatric patients) will receive home health. Conditions that PTs may treat in home health settings include fractures, progressive neurological conditions, chronic pain, and fall risk.
The annual mean wage for this setting is $96,560.
Oregon PT Licensure Board Physical Therapist Licensing Board
800 NE Oregon Street, Suite 407 Portland, OR 97232
You’ve passed the boards! You nailed the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) and you’ve found a great job in a state you've always wanted to explore. Do you need a state specific license? Yes, yes you do. We know it sounds easier to just skip the licensing and stay in one place, but don’t! One of the most common issues with travel therapy is getting licensed in the state you’re moving to. Advanced Travel Therapy works hard to make sure that’s not a problem. Our recruiters will assist in acquiring and renewing your Oregon PT license. We’ll even help by compensating you for costs associated with licensing.
