Protect the OT Scope of Practice

  1. Our scope of practice act will sunset. This means it will cease to protect the distinct scope of practice for Occupational Therapy Practitioners. 

  2. NMOTA will work with lawmakers to make updates to and to ensure that the OT scope of practice is protected in New Mexico​. 

  3. Find the full text of our current scope of practice at https://www.nmota.org/scope-of-practice

Advocate for the OT Compact

The OT Compact would allow OTs to work across state borders. The compact did not pass in 2023, and was not included in the budgetary 2024 session. ​
