  • There is only one COTA employed at my hospital and we are a mid size facility for the following areas Acute Hospital, Physical Rehabiliation, and SNF. There might be some more in our psych facility but I am not certain.

  • Onet is a great source to find out what the projected job market is like for any career that you are interested in. You can look at the US as a whole or you can look at your state. It will tell you the income you would likely make and whether or not it is a growing field and how many new positions are expected.
