Seeking Volunteers for Interim Competency Process
The Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapists (NSCP) is seeking volunteers for our Credentials Committee. The Credentials Committee considers applications for registration and licensure as a Physiotherapist in Nova Scotia.
Postponements and cancellation of the National Physiotherapy Competency Exam due to the COVID-19 pandemic have caused significant ambiguity for Nova Scotia Resident Physiotherapists on their next steps to fully entering the profession.
The NSCP has adopted an interim policy to provide an alternative credentialing process to be in effect while the PCE clinical component is not available. This interim process will be conducted by the credentials committee (Download Terms of Reference).
Who can volunteer?
There are 3 required roles on the Credentials Committee (Follow the links for more details on what we are looking for with each role):
- Public member
- Physiotherapist who has sponsored a Resident within the last 5 years
- Physiotherapist who is a current or former NSCP Board Director
For those considering applying please note that applications will be accepted until Feb 7th, 2022.
Please also note that for those that may not fit the 3 defined categories (Public, Current/Former Board Member, Current/Former Sponsor) there is space for you on the committee and your applications are welcome. Please submit use the application form and include a copy of your CV with your application.
