Studying studying studying. Still have a long way to go. I take the new NBCOT exam May 23rd and will know my pass/fail by June 1st. Have not been giving my blog much attention lately but I should. By the way, most of my OT classmates have jobs now and I've heard a range from $24/hr to $40/hr (no benefits). Most on average will be making in the 50,000 range I think. That's most realistic in this area. Pediatrics pays less, but nursing homes etc can pay really high. I still have no job, more or less by choice. I'm waiting to hear from a particular hospital here – hopefully by mid June at the latest, and depending on the answer, I will be moving away pretty much ASAP to try my luck in another city. I'd REALLY like inpatient peds but I am discovering that is close to impossible to get as a new grad without connections EVEN THOUGH I COULD BE AWESOME. Oh well. Will keep trying in various states and places ….peds, mental health….will do whatever I can to NOT be in phys dys (physical dysfunction)…just not my bag, baby….

I guess I'll go to sleep now. My plan for this next week is to study a minimum of 3 hours each day until Saturday, and continue taking as many practice tests as possible. I WILL PASS I WILL PASS I WILL PASS………
