Physical Therapy Pay in Nebraska - NE

Known as the “Cornhusker State”, Nebraska has an economy largely centered on agriculture. With technological improvements enhancing productivity, however, which in turn requires fewer workers in this sector, healthcare has emerged as an area with hot job prospects through 2012 as the population ages, according to the Nebraska Workforce Development Department of Labor (NWDDL). Physical therapists in Nebraska tend to be located largely in Lincoln and Omaha where jobs for them are more common, relative to the population, than in other parts of the state. The Nebraska physical therapy salary in those two areas range from $64,000 to $66,000 and overall in Nebraska, job growth is anticipated at a slightly above-average rate, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Physical therapists must complete an approved education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education of the American Physical Therapy Association, apply for licensure from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health Licensure Unit, and take and pass both the Nebraska Jurisprudence Exam and the National Physical Therapist Exam. The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy develops and administers the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) as well as the Nebraska Jurisprudence exam. Physical therapist assistants in Nebraska must also pass the two exams and be certified.
