How to Get Your Oklahoma Occupational Therapy License
The Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure doesn't provide approximate turnaround times for getting your OT license, but the faster you get all of the paperwork turned in and requirements met the better. However, the state does let OTs work on a provisional basis for up to 90 days while they wait, which may mean you can get right to work. With an OT salary that's right around the national average and a cost of living that runs around 16 points lower, it's easy to see that being a travel OT in Oklahoma can be a good move for your wallet.
Whether you want to hike the Elk Mountain Trail in the Wichita Mountains or check out the museums and history centers in Oklahoma City, this state has the best of both worlds. If you're stuck trying to decide between an assignment in the big city or one a little more rural, or you have any other questions about the Oklahoma OT licensure process, feel free to contact us for more help.
How long does it take to receive your occupational therapy license in Oklahoma?

This means you can get started in an OT job in Oklahoma very quickly compared to other states.
