Just wanted to stop in and tell you all that I’m going to pause my blogging for a couple weeks. I’m taking the Neurologic Clinical Specialist (NCS) exam on March 10th. So I need to 1) buckle down these last couple weeks and grind it out and 2) beg for your prayers for a clear and peaceful mind, so that I can represent my knowledge and skill set accurately on the test.
But beyond that, I do have some news to pass along: a CCU webinar course!
Who: PTs, PTAs, particularly in the great state of Texas as TPTA is the host so it’s already approved! (For those of you not licensed in Texas, this is a big deal, because Texas is super strict about it’s CCU approval requirements.)
When: March 17, 2016 12-1 pm CST
Where: Wherever you have a computer with suitable internet access

Beyond that, I wanted to share something that’s been on my mind. If you’re not an APTA member/ section member / SIG member (varies within each section, but here are the options within the Neuro Section), please consider becoming one. I realize it’s a little on the expensive side, but the money goes to a good cause: YOU, YOUR PROFESSION, YOUR PATIENTS. How do you think APTA and your state’s professional organization can afford all the educational opportunities they provide? Or the staff that process all our licensure stuff? Or the people that wine and dine the government officials to force them to listen to propositions that benefit YOUR job? All those things take money. Plus you get some freebie or discounted CCUs, news related to the profession, networking opportunities, the latest in PT research delivered to your door, special rates on things like professional liability insurance, rental cars… What’s not to love? So please consider giving a little love back to the profession that pays your bills. Here’s an example of state newsletter you’ll get when you’re a state member. And here’s an example of the wonderful things you’ll get in a SIG’s newsletter. See? Good stuff! I guarantee you’ll find a group that peaks your interest.
