Claudia Herrera, PT, MSPT, was frustrated. She'd been practicing in Connecticut for more than a decade. When her husband considered moving to Florida for his job, she investigated what it would take to become licensed in the Sunshine State. It wouldn't be easy.
"They told me to take more classes and earn credits. I already had a master's degree and had been practicing for a long time. I had gotten a specialist certification in orthopedic manual therapy. Did they want another certification? No, they wanted me to take courses in English and geography. Not physical therapy. So, we ended up staying in Connecticut."
