I am really interested in becoming a Physical Therapy Assistant, but my dad says it would be a sad job to work, which I disagree with him. Can any of you tell me more about it and can you tell me if it would be sad or not?
I graduate from college in April with a biology degree. I want to work a year before going back to grad school for physical therapy. What kind of job can I get in physical therapy without being a certified Physical Therapy Assistant? What are some good places to look?
I graduated with a bachelors of science in biology (without a concentration/emphasis in a particular field of biology) and I am now wondering what else I can do with my degree. I was wondering if I could apply for a job as a physical therapy assistant now? Or will i need to go back to college for a few years or only complete a few more classes to become a physical therapy assistant? What class are most desired? Recommendations for online schools?? Thank you!
I'm 33 years old and looking to go into the physical therapy field. I would like to become a physical therapy assistant and am looking into getting a 2 year degree from a DelTech University. I would like to know if it is hard to get a job in this field. The average pay for this position. Also would it be hard to get into this field at my age?

How do I become a Physical Therapy Assistant in NYC? Are there any good schools in the NYC area that can get you certified fast? Is it easy to find a job after being certified?
I was wondering if anyone has done the physical therapy assistant program,
and how hard is it. Also how hard is it to pass the final exams.
: One more thing, is it hard to find a job in the PTA field.
I recently got accepted into a Physical Therapy Assistant program and I was wondering if I should also get a BS in Physical Education with a concentration in Health and Exercise Science. I heard that it looks better for when you get a job but I talked to a girl that's already in the PTA program and she said it really didn't matter if you got a BS in Health and Exercise or not. Is that true? So i'm basically just wondering is it worth it to do the Health and Exercise Science major also? Thanks!
Im currently in school to become a Physical Therapy Assistant and I wanted to work as a PT Aide for the experience. I just started a job in retail makin 6.45 plus commission and I want to quit and do something that will at least help me in my future career. How do I go about searching for a PT Aide job and do they pay at least minimum wage?
I'm a little confused about working as a PTA versus getting a Physical Therapy degree. I looked at some job listings in my state for Physical Therapists and it indicated a BS or MS (or DPT) in Physical Therapy plus licensure was required, but I thought you couldn't get licensed with just a bachelor's in Physical Therapy (there are a couple of Bach. Phys. Therapy programs in my state). Will a Bachelor's in Physical Therapy allow me to work as a physical therapy assistant while pursuing a graduate degree, or do I have to go through the lesser Associates in Physical Therapy program which seems more geared toward a physical therapy assistant job. Also, any other undergraduate majors I can pursue which are related but which could provide me with income while I pursue the DPT?
Is it possible for me to get a job as a paralegal with a certificate in paralegal studies and a bachelors in English? What about a physical therapy assistant certificate?

Also should i get a certificate, bachelors or associate in radiology technology?
I still compete in athletics and am in the strange position of dedicating time to training and trying to find a lifestyle to support myself. I feel i should make decent money (jobs that pay substantially more than jobs that don't require an education) but have a hard time finding jobs that are part time. I've been looking into physical therapy assistant jobs.
any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you. in the chicago area.
I'm considering getting my applied associates degree in a physical therapy assistant program, I don't know anyone in the field and I was hoping someone could give me an idea of what the pros and cons are for this job. Any kind of input would be greatly appreciated :-)
Is it similar to a CNA and/or Physical Therapy Assistant job? And what kind of pay could I expect? This would be for a position that does not require any type of certification or experience, just on the job training.
I already have a BA in the Fine arts and graduated in 2008. i had a short run in graphic design and then got laid off and couldn't find a job. Would it be worth it to go back to school and get an associates degree in physical therapy assistant?
I'm currently taking prerequisites to get into the physical therapy assistant program and I'm trying to get a job to help me out through school. I really need one right now and I'm tired of applying at these places like walmart or mcdonalds or other places. I still haven't had any luck so i started to think of applying to other places instead like banks but then i started to think of applying for a physical therapy aide position because that's the setting I'm going to be working in when i get my degree and i could use the experience for later on.
how do i go about looking for a job in this position? Its more professional vs. applying for a McDonalds job so i wan't to go about it the right way. I'm not sure where to start.

Do you have to be really smart to be a physical therapy assistant or can someone with average intellect do the job?
do you have to do any decision making or do you just do what the physical therapist tells you to do?
